This is a question Will you go out with me?

"Bloody Kraut, a" asks, "How did you get your current flame to go out with you? If they turned you down, how bad was it?"

Was it all romantic? Or were the beer goggles particularly strong that night?

As well as sending the poem by e-mail, I also sent her a virtual exploding Valentine's teddy-bear by e-mail (to a different e-mail address) (I had to hack the EXE to change the message - this contrasted nicely with composing poetry from the soul and briefly placed me in a domain I felt more at home in). I didn't go to bed until 4:30am on Valentine's day morning, but managed to make it to the office by 9:15am the next day, and I even sent her a text-message before I got to work.

Initially, she responded positively and absolutely adored the poem. Unfortunately, when it came to finding out her response to what I was trying to say, she was evasive at first, but in the end, I asked her directly, but just gave a brief and cryptic comment to say she wasn't looking at the moment and tried to move the conversation onwards.

After a pause, we spent a lot of time chatting on MSN Messenger. I got to visit her again a few months later. I'm leaving that experience for another QOTW.

Apologies for anticlimax.
