let me buy you breakfast - free JBB granola + biscotti + coffee
i'll show some embarassing photos + blab about my book + then maybe you will buy one for yourself + your mom
me: goodness gracious, i'm kinda overwhelmed.
portland: oh really? i couldn't tell... what's up?
me: i mean, i know that we just met, that this is our first date, but it's just, you're so... i don't know... you're so... sweet.
portland: oh stop it, you're rad too. and come on, i'm not perfect you know.
me: i'm sure, nowhere is, but everything i've seen so far has just been so... nice.
portland: well that's sweet of you... you're pretty nice yourself.
me: all of your streets are so serene, and you've got that wonderful river right in the middle, and the food, and the coffee, and the cocktails, and all the pretty people...
portland: well, you do have a point, i've got very good versions of all of those things.
me: i just rode my bike all over you today, and at every frikkin turn i was met with such rad stuff. i mean, you even inspired me to buy new shoes!
portland: well aren't those cute!!
me: anyway, i have something i've been wanting to ask you...
portland: and what's that?
me: ummmm, well, i was thinking that maybe we could, i don't know, ya know, ummmm...
me: oh no, i can't ask, now i'm embarassed.
portland: oh come on! don't be a weenie, just ask me! would it help if i told you that i had a really nice day with you, and that i think that you're a very cute young man...?
me: <blushes> ...wanna have breakfast together?
portland: ...i thought you'd never ask.
hope to see some of you sweet portland folk tomorrow morning.
