I was going to post this earlier, but got caught up reading, and then got the second email which just added to the thought.
I emailed a quick one-liner to say that “Purple Rain” was stuck in my head and it was all his fault. His response:
You’re welcome! (Warning: the following is an intentionally sappy line intended as a joke…) If it’s still stuck in your head tomorrow, I’ll make sure you forget all about it 😉 😉 😉
Then, over lunch, he emailed “for real,” and included this statement:
And, finally, another question which you can choose to not answer… – What’s something that I’m not doing with you that you wish that I did? (It could be something big or small… silly or serious)
I could almost cry.
