So I had that project I needed to finish and I did, (thanks, Coffee, my lover, my friend). I e-mailed Tobi to make sure everything was completed and it turns out, I had one more page.
Let me preface this by saying Tobi is a good friend and ex-co-worker and we have a pretty close personal relationship. I don’t think we ever used Sie with each other and after sending him emails explaining American terms like Tea Bagging or why I snickered when he once told me that he and his buddies liked water sports (perhaps I’ve spent too much time with Shaun, aka GBF), most barriers were down. In regards to the water sports, I have to clarify that he, of course, meant wind surfing and the like, but I was having much too much fun imagining it a different way.
I finished my project and e-mailed it back with the following note.
Here it is. Who loves you, baby?
There´s only one person who loves me except my family. You know her personally…
Many, many thanks, Tobi
No, Tobi, I love you.
