I may be a softie, but Sam finally (this morning) sent an e-mail apology -- very genuine and horrified, as he should be -- and we are meeting tonight, as he thought was the original plan. As punishment, I am going to send him more of my writing and, quite possibly, make him buy me a coffee AND a scone. But only if the scone is chocolate chip. If it is not, I will make him buy me something that involves chocolate. Maybe a whole cake.
But I probably won't make him buy me anything. As I am, indeed, a softie.
