I think it frightened her date a bit too. In a good way.
He was late and my perfectly punctual princess was pacing the floor. I know she was nervous even though this guy has been playing volleyball with us for years and she has classes with him at school. They are pretty good friends although she complains that he never talks to her other than with texts. I was hopeful that a date might change that. It would certainly make volleyball easier.
Since he doesn't have a driver's license yet, his dad showed up with him at the door. He didn't want to miss the opportunity to take pictures either. Princess handed me the flower and I carefully pinned it on, but not before I threatened to stab him in the chest if he moved. The fact that I also knew this kid (and his dad) eased some of the tension. But I think we were all aware that something had definitely changed.
He pulled out an absolutely gorgeous flower that he slipped onto her wrist. We snapped a few more pics and they were off. I was left to wonder all evening since she didn't take her phone. "No place to put it," she explained, and she hates carrying a purse.
