If you want to read all of my posts about the Giant, you can find them on my Lovers page.
You may recall from my last post about him that he borrowed some books and I would really like to get them back. I got some good advice from comments and friends and decided to put the plan in action yesterday morning.
So I sent him the following text: Hi [Giant]. It’s Ann. [My son] was playing with his trebuchet last night and it reminded me of you. I’m wondering how your knee recovery went and the job search has been. Drop me a line when you get a chance.
Now, I deliberately tried to not make it seem romantic, hence mentioning my son. I also wanted to be nice and not ask about my books right away. So all in all, I figured it was a decent opening. He waited 25 hours before responding…and it was a little surprising to me:
I’m not sure if my response was perfect since I didn’t want to encourage him further, so tried to take it back to the health question. I did note he ignored the job question. I haven’t responded back to the latest one… is it possible I can ignore the comment and just say “oh, yes, and about those books…”
