and his blog I WROTE THIS FOR YOU
For one day only, he changed his blog's name
and wrote this for her.
Iain sent me the picture
And this is the card
I printed and put on her computer.
She sleeps now. Shhh. And I blog, oh, my.
We met at the Tokyo PC User Group meeting on a Thursday.
I asked, have you ever ridden a motorbike? No.
Would you like to? Yes.
How about next Saturday? Fine.
Where? At the station.
We met. On time.
Fear not. I go slow.
When we turn, just sit straight and lean in, OK? OK.
We went to the lake.
We laid on the grass below the trees.
We talked. We had tea.
Her mother had made rice with red beans.
We talked and found trust.
We created a future in our minds.
I feel as if I know you for a thousand years, do you? :-) .
What did you tell your parents? Out with my girlfriends.
But you need to tell them the truth... I will.
She did. I proposed.
Her mother agreed soon.
Her father took a year.
I marketed us to his relatives and his boss.
And then he threw a big celebration.
I am so grateful.
Now you know.
