Surprisingly, things haven't been weird at work since the whole Harper date. In fact they have just been business as usual. Her flirting is just the same as before. We didn't ever speak about the awkward doorstep scene and I'm fine with that. I also resolved to be far more serious with Andrea, and though we haven't got around to having a DTR, in my mind, I am as exclusive as I have ever been.
So I was surprised yesterday when I got home from work, and there was this little box on the front porch. It had my name on it and a little bow, and a little teeny thank you card. Inside the box was a bag of Sour Patch Kids, which anyone who knows me well knows this is my most very favorite candy. Written inside the thank you card was "Thank you so much for not kissing me! I know that was odd. Seriously thank you tho. You are an awesome guy. XoXoX Harper"
I showed the box to my roommates and we mused over the strangeness of this chick. At work today I told her thank you for the candy and the card. She again, didn't act any differently.
Today when I got home from work, there was another little box on my porch. Same bow and thank you card. Inside was a can of Mountain Dew, also my favorite. This time the card said, "Thank you so much for not kissing me. I think you deserve another chance. XXXXoXXXX Harper"
Again the roommates and I discussed Harpers weirdness. Calvin suggested I cut all ties from her and start ignoring her, even at work. Aaron & Lance Think I should make out with her. Nick thinks I should just keep her at arms length and see how things go with Andrea. I thinks she is nuts, and want nothing to do with her. I do appreciate the goodies though, maybe I should just try and milk this till the food stops coming... I don't know, too much work?
Speaking of Andrea, she told me about her date with the fireman. She said he was a nice guy, but he was "no Jake." This brought me some comfort, but I was never terribly threatened to begin with. I asked her about him though. She described him and it all sounded very righteous. He started their date with a prayer and their discussions were chiefly religious. The thought, "She deserves a better man than me" hasn't left my mind since we wrote that talk together... (despite the many comments here about me needing to man up and quit being a pansy) as she described fireman, he sounded like a pretty cool guy. Pretty cool, and... "a better man than me."
It is safe to say I am confused.
