100 things about me, #7...
He used to bring me Reese's Peanut Butter Cups before we were dating.
we met at work, a restaurant called The Hometown Grill, in alpharetta, GA. i was working my favorite schedule, which meant i was usually free to go home by five.
he was the new guy in the kitchen. he didn't even have to show up until four. he started coming in early to eat his *shift meal* before work. he would sit at the bar where i tended to the afternoon golf-channel-watching crowd. he would have to find a way to compete with the *tipping* customers.
there was a BP gas station next door. he began stopping there on his way in. he would buy me Reese's Peanut Butter Cups. it was 1996; there was a special Reese's that came in a yellow wrapper and had a chocolate cookie mixed in with all that peanut buttery goodness. i never see those anymore. pity.
he kept this up for six months before i agreed to go out on a date. i hate to think about how many chocolate-y calories i consumed in those six months...
