Remember back in May when I got the anonymous love note on my garage? I got another one Tuesday* night! And this time he signed his name, Brian.
My next course of action was discussed at length with my cabinet of advisers, LilBRR, Heathybear and Peabody, and it was decided that I should respond. Heathybear suggested I email him since the last note had his email address but LilBRR, being the romantic that she is, suggested I leave a note for him in the same spot on the garage. So I did.
When I left for work yesterday morning I left a note that basically acknowledged the courage it took to leave the notes, mentioned I was at a disadvantage since I know nothing about him and requested a reply note with a little about himself. Since it was raining yesterday morning, and I am a huge dork, I even put my note in a sheet protector.
The note and the sheet protector were gone when I got home. There wasn't a return note but don't you think he probably spent all night writing me a tome? I'll keep you posted about any new developments in this garage drama.
The way I see it, this can go two ways: One, he turns out to be a great guy and I like him and we date and get married and have 12 babies and tell all those babies the romantic story of how we met. Or two, this turns into a hot mess from which I have to extricate myself gracefully. Either way it gives me something to write about.
