My Kind of Romance


Returning home from a very, very long day of study to find a clean kitchen, a newly installed thrifted yellow lamp so that I can actually see at my desk, and a big, cold glass of diet cherry coke, pre-stirred to remove that pesky carbonation.  I'm not fan of roses, and I'm not easily won over by jewelry, but do the dishes and pour me a drink?  I'm in.

*Also, and I know, this is rubbing in my joyous good luck, but I'm writing this from the couch.  Newland, the laptop, is very excited to be bringing you this message.

I know you loved that cutzy laptop that was for another time in your life. Single, undergrad, etc. Now you are a grad student who needs a workhorse laptop like Newland for all those intense thoughts. He told me he could handle it when I was packing him up to send to you.

I love that sweet, thoughtful Andrew got you a yellow lamp.

Your mom's beau's name is NEWLAND? Like Newland Archer? Lucky.
