The tie story.
Last week, I was flipping through the radio stations on my morning drive to work. I stopped on the local country station (101.5 WYNK) as the two male DJs were talking.
One of them, Patrick (if I remember correctly) said he was guilty of doing something sappy. It was a Thursday morning and he’d gotten dumped on Tuesday.
Thursday would have marked their 2-month-iversary. They had plans to get dressed up and go out to dinner, just as they did for their 1-month-iversary.
When they went out then, Patrick’s girlfriend admired his tie, and flipped it over to see the label.
“What was that for?” Patrick asked her.
She told him that her grandfather made ties for 50 years; and whenever she gets the chance to check the label, she does, because she wonders if it’s one of her grandfather’s ties.
After that, Patrick went online to purchase one of her grandfather’s ties, so that when they went to dinner, and she flipped over the tie, she would see a familiar label.
Since they broke up and wouldn’t be going to dinner, he mailed her the tie with a short note, saying “No hard feelings, but this means more to you than it does to me.”
Is that not the sweetest story? Not sappy at all—seems right out of a movie.
