Well Lt. Firefighter not to be all puntastic but there were embers and they were smoldering but somehow, one of us thought the other was out looking for firewood and they simply went out.
Maybe it was my needling you about your age or the fact that I was rather high energy and you had worked your tail off for three days in a row saving lives and doing what most of us are not equipped to do and were simply tired. But as a man of your word, if you said there’d be a second date, follow through. Don’t be surprised when I look for the same level of communication that you started off with in anticipation of a second date, and seem confused at complete radio silence on your end.
My father always said that your word is all you ever really have; you are born with it and you die with it, and its integrity is entirely in your hands. If you say your going to do something, do it. Otherwise, don’t bother talking because eventually, no one will listen.
