A sweet memory.

I remember this couple I knew in college who lived in neighboring apartments. At some point in time the girl snuck a reminder into the guy's phone, "October 21, 10 p.m., give Rochelle flowers." There was no real reason, it was just to horse around. She kind of forgot about the reminder, and October 21, around 10:15, he came over and knocked on her door. "I'm sorry," he said, "I forgot to get you flowers," thinking that he had forgotten some silly anniversary that only girls remember. "But I drew you this, instead." And he gave her a sort of silly little stick-figuresque flower. Happy Sunday, everyone.
