A Hot Guy Sent Me Chocolate Covered Strawberries

So, I’ve been helping one of my ex students from back in the day get into grad school.  As a token of appreciation, he sent me a dozen gourmet chocolate covered strawberries from Shari’s Berries.

What It’s Really Like to Be in a Relationship

Lest you think it’s all having your clothes ripped off and having hot sex all night, I thought I would share a couple vignettes that are fairly representative of Jake and I.
