i met paul yesterday. i am already foreseeing a problem. what started as a nice-to-meet-you conversation turned into an hour of getting-to-know-you talk. fine. it happens. but i do have things to do, so i said goodbye and went upstairs. twice he came to my door to bring me things: a book, a cd and dvd i have to see. i politely took the things and said i'll give them a look, thank you, how nice of you, goodbye. an hour later the flowers came: stargazers and tulips— he’d paid attention. a big bouquet and a love note. uh oh.
