Re: The Singles of TAM 2.0
OK, be prepared for sweetness overload...
Last night, I was stepping out to go to the grocery store and to the mall to get a new pair of slacks for work. It was a little before 8 pm, and I hadn't eaten dinner, since I was planning on getting something from the grocery store. I walk outside, and realize that I have locked myself out of the house. I call my one roommate, and she's staying over at her girlfriend's place in the city and won't be back until morning. My other roommate is at martial arts, so I know he won't be back until about 10:40 or so.
We HAD a lockbox with a spare key in it on the door, for which I had the combination and could have easily let myself back in. But... the property management company did an inspection this past Friday (happens every 6 mos), and they removed the lock box for some reason... even though it's been there ever since I moved in, and no other inspector ever removed it.
So, I'm outside, and I'm bored, because what am I going to do for the next few hours? I have my phone and my wallet, so I'm not totally screwed. So I call Real Estate, and I told him what happened, and we're chatting. I ask him if he's eaten dinner, but he's already eaten. Besides, there are a ton of restaurants nearby I can walk to. So he says, "You're really bored, aren't you?"
And I say, "Well, I have my phone to entertain me, and I'm thinking I'll go somewhere nearby and get some food."
And he says, "But it would be better with company, right?" And at that moment, I see his car pull into my driveway, and he tells me to come get in the car so he can take me to get some dinner. I get in the car, and he's like, "I couldn't just leave you out in the cold (it wasn't that cold) and bored, waiting for your roommate to come home. I'm like a knight, I had to come to your rescue. But I'm not a knight in shining armor. I'm like a cross between a knight and pervert." And he took me to get some food, and hung out with me while I ate dinner, and then we went back to his place and watched YouTube videos until my roommate came home.
It was just really sweet that he came to get me. I'm perfectly capable of taking care of myself, but it's nice when someone cares enough that you don't have to go it alone.
