When a woman walks out of gym after a good work out – she’s hot, sweaty, wearing gym gear and not at all expecting to find a flirtatious note from a mysterious admirer.
So it was a big surprise when University Professor and New York Times best selling author Brene Brown walked out of the gym one morning to find something unexpected on her car. Waiting on the windscreen was a serviette with the following startling message, “You are really cute. I am going 2-stepping tonight, if you would like to join me. Call me.”
As a married woman, Brene was shocked to receive this sort of note, but then noticed something very familiar about the phone number at the bottom of the page. She suddenly realised it belonged to none other than her husband, and her initial “what the heck?” reaction soon turned into a heart melting romantic moment.
Brene posted the photo on Facebook, with the comment: “Someone left this napkin note on my car at the gym this morning. I was like, “What the heck?” Then I recognized my husband’s phone number. He had me at two-stepping. #doyoulikepiñacoladas“ and the funny story was soon shared by romantics worldwide.
