In last week's post, I talked about finding notes from my kids, but also another set of notes that I found on the internet: notes to and from a romantic partner. There's something very special about a note from the person you're closest to in life, they can be revealing and joyous and excruciating all at the same time.
This first one is probably my favorite. I love that this guy's wife offered a fight as a welcome home. And who hasn't enjoyed a nerf gun fight at some point in their lives? I particularly like the "may the force be with you" touch in the signoff. I am using this in an Eve M. Riley novel at some point in the future!
When I look at this next note, I suspect this man was drunk when he left a cute love note. But . . . what is it with car colors at night? In my experience, they look nothing like they do during the day. I'm sure there's some clever thing about human eyes that I could know here, but I'm just not that expert (on anything, really).
When I saw note number 3, my first thought was: Dammit, why didn't I think of that? I'm curious about the man that would respond to this and go and do the last thing on this list. Now that is a real hero. This is another idea that is going in a romance book at some point.
I write tech romance, and it's heart-warming to see that even outside the tech community, people still talk about the Nokia 4110 with awe. They'll be digging these things up in the 23rd century, pressing the power button and finding that they all still work.
Heroes don't save the world from the evil mastermind, they kill bugs. And yes, my husband is the bug killer in our house. Often, it's an insect (a moth) that's muscled its way into the bedroom at night, and he throws something at the ceiling, misses the bug but manages to hit me. But hey, I love him anyway. He will check that the windows and doors are locked when asked, and will shut the cats away for the night (they sometimes pee in the house). And yes, he's available for hire.
But also can I just add here that I love the lady who wrote this note: I also want evidence of the dead bug. Lost bugs? . . . No no no no no.
The final note had to be something sexier and romance related. I can't quite believe this was a real note, and if it was, I want to meet the man that wrote it!
Hope you enjoyed these as much as I did!
Lots of love
