This, in fact, was in my infernal in-box this morning:
Well, well, well... What to make of the response? Few words, but packing a lot of information and emotion...
In the essance of getting everything out on the table, I have always liked you Beau, often more than a friend, but the cards were just never in place for us to make a go at it. School, work, other relationships...
Mike is clearly the one for me. Being with him, and now getting ready to marry him has been the easiest decision of my life. I can only now say this, and I still have tons more learning to do, but I believe in "the one". Never settle. Have a vision of perfection, work on yourself and wait. You are too smart, too funny, too attractive and too gifted to settle, Beau. Really. And I am glad you felt more for me as well in the past, but now we are on to the next phase of our lives and friendship.
Care to join me?
So I suppose the question remains. Could I have really been with someone who misspells 'essence'?
Ahh, for Tracy I might have made an exception.
