But my Leo and Kate Titanic quote and made her say how cute she thought I was. I just couldn't help but try one more time (or more).
The following weekend was a big fall festival in my little town. I had to work again so I thought it was an excellent opportunity for Sandee to meet me just after and we could have an hour or two just before logic required me home.
I sent her info on the festival she seemed very interested and said she could stop by. I told her to call me and let me know when she was close and I could talk her in if she had trouble (directions seemed to be a challenge for her).
This time she even texted me when she left; things were looking great. About an hour later she texted me and said she was here but couldn't find the festival. I asked her to describe where she was. It was hard to decipher via text but after a few minutes I concluded that she was in a completely different town! I won't say which town but let's just say if I was directing you to Baltimore's Inner Harbor and you described a quaint little harbor with a lot of old looking buildings and this academy across the street after a few minutes I might realize you were actually in Annapolis. That is about the scope of the error in geography we had.
Maybe this would finally work. I am not the sharpest tack in any room but persistence has always won things for me; surely it will for me now! Sandee said she could come over right after work.
Again, all looked good throughout the day. Sandee said she had one last patient around 4 pm and she would try to be quick about getting out of the office.
At about 4:30 pm I got a text "grrr...., this guy was late for his appt.....I'll make him pay for that :)"
So now I'm thinking 6 pm is still OK; that gives us an hour. I can deal with that.
Of course 6 pm comes and goes. I text her and apparently her co-workers would not let her go.
Apparently I was not the first gentleman caller for our lovely Sandee. Apparently another guy had been talking to her and actually showed up to her office hotel room key in hand and it had scared her and made an impression on her co-workers. Thinking that Sandee was walking into a trap they did not let her go. Or so she said.
Again Sandee was apologetic. This time I was pretty convenced to scrap this and move on.
And that is what kept me going for just a bit more because Ryan is nothing if not curious and that title on the picture had me curious. Let's just keep going just a bit more. Hopefully curiosity would not kill this cat........
