Back to Jess for a minute. When I awoke this morning there was a text message waiting for me from him. It said:
Hey Steve! it was good to see you last night, but I owe you for all the dinners, etc you have been getting. We had a great conversation! I look forward to more like that one. Sending you a big hug today. You are an incredible guy. Jess
Then a few hours later, I wrote one. Yes, I know, it was dumb, mushy and all but it was honest. Just read it and try not puke:
Was thinking about you! Makes me happy and smile! I'm lucky to know you!
And 15 minutes later, Jess responded with:
That's funny -- I was just thinking about you! I'm lucky to know YOU!
