This is a store that needs customers to thrive. In order to continue to thrive, the the store needs to keep the customers happy. Every so often, a customer might ask you to break a rule in order to show that you truly appreciate that customer. The rule that he's asking you to break may have some great background and foundation, but ultimately, this guy is handing you a practically brand new item that even Wal-mart would return without question.

I'm absolutely forcing myself to keep this short, because I know that, like you, I tend to ramble an unholy amount.
So. After my twelve years or so as a resident of the interwebs, I have only just now stumbled upon your site, and your Romance.Net epic in particular. This could not have happened at a more appropriate time in my life. I am normally one to dismiss a series of coincidences as just that---a series of coincidences---but the extent to which a good chunk of that story mirrors my life is almost absurd. I am currently 21 years old, and I find myself in an eerily similar situation. I don't doubt that a lot of guys could say, and have said, the same thing... but as I'm sure you know, things like this really only hit home when you yourself experience them. I don't believe in much, but I do believe in fate, to an extent... and, as silly as this might sound to you, I think I was meant to discover your writing at this exact moment in my life.
What I'm trying to say is that your story has given me the perspective I think I need to get over myself. And her. So... thank you, Joe. You have a great talent for writing. I'll be buying your second book when it comes out. I don't think that's really adequate repayment for your unwitting help, but life's weird like that.
And one last touch:
