I had been seeing this guy for some time but still doubted whether our relationship was going anywhere. He is very handsome but that was hardly enough. His good looks was definitely a plus but I also wanted a guy who would be there for me, someone I could lean on when things got tough. Then the evening came when I made him dinner.
It started off really great, with him complimenting me on the food as well as on how nice I looked. An earlier glitch in the HVAC performance seemed to have been temporary, so we were blissfully enjoying our meal in air conditioned comfort. We were in the middle of the main course when the room began to feel warm and I noticed tiny beads of sweat on my guy’s forehead. The HVAC! Despite the AC tech’s recent tune up, the unit was clearly malfunctioning. In a panic, I excused myself and rushed to check the thermostat. The setting was still on low but air was getting stufier by the minute.
I hadn’t even noticed my date standing by me till he quieting confirmed that my HVAC unit was obviously dow,, Then he smiled, held my hand and told me not to worry; everything would fine. Quickly, he opened up the windows and asked if I happened to have a fan stashed away. I was heading to the closet but he cut me off, found the old fan, dusted it off and set it up beside our table. I was amazed and very, very impressed. We finished our dinner, joking and giggling as if nothing had happened.
I had found my Mr. Right!
