One of my best friends is a really nice guy, this post reminds me of him.
Unfortunately, if you want to see most of his things (his truck, etc.)
you have to go to his ex's house. Be careful. You sound too nice for
your own good. Wait till you're sure someone deserves what you're giving
before you give it. That goes for everything from chocolate to your heart.
Thank you, Melissa. I'm just me---a sentimental, romantic old fool of Irish
heritage...guess I'll never learn.
