My gift from MB
Fri, 12-20-2013 - 6:13pm

I decided to get a small gift for MB and keep it in my drawer at work.  Nothing big, just a small bag of a coffee he likes, a box of tea that I thought he will like and a few of his favorite chocolates.  I wasn't going to give it to him unless he got me something so I wouldn't make him feel bad.  Well sure enough this morning he came to my office and gave me another CD he burned for me and a card.  Inside the card was a $30 gift certificate for JCP (now I feel cheep with what I got him, lol).  His note in the card said: "Thanks again for your friendship and lending an ear for me to vent, also for all the little things you do for me.  You brighten my day everytime I see you and talk to you on the phone. I hope you have a Very Merry Christmas and a Happy and Healthy New Year!" The card itself read: "I told Santa Claus what I wanted from you this Christmas...He washed my mouth out with soap".  LMAO.  The gift and his words came at a strange time because after my OLD scare I decided to give it another try on a different site but to be a lot more careful.  I actually have a date scheduled next weekend with someone (and no, MB does not know about it, no one at work does).  I am nervous and excited at the same time even though I'm trying not to get my hopes up about a first date, it could turn out to be a bomb.  I am also full of regret that the date isn't with MB instead, the gift and card only intensifying that feeling.  But I am determined to go because I can't wait for something to happen with MB because I don't think anything ever will since I'm unwilling to do a FWB with him. Still....it does make this upcoming date slightly bittersweet :-(
