When I was off sick last year, I would go to my regular coffee place in the morning and sit with a table of acquaintances that I had made the year before.
Throughout the year, they went from being acquaintances to becoming really good and supportive friends. All of them are retired guys and they meet up every morning for coffee.
Anyway, on Saturday, one of them said to me when he was leaving, that he had forgotten my gift for Thursday. I start wondering what on earth is he is going on about since my birthday is not for another 3 months. Then, I realize that he is talking about Valentine’s Day. I say to him, no need to get me anything for that.
Lo and behold, Sunday morning, he gives me a paper bag and in the bag was a gorgeous box of chocolates.
