    Summary

    It isn’t just about the tea. Or wanting it to be perfect. It is about those things, but David might also be freaking out a little bit about what he just said to Patrick. Maybe he just needs to see that what he told Ted is true. Sometimes it does work out.

    Summary

    “Do you wear a lot of blue?” she asks. Cindy, her name tag says.

    She hands Patrick a pair of dark gray wire-frame glasses which he slides on until they hook behind his ears. And it’s not like—well everyone who knows him knows he likes blue. But he feels a little unsettled that this stranger picks up on it, like at she can see his whole life contained within the frames around his eyes.

    “Uh, yeah. I guess so,” Patrick says, taking them off again. This pair, like all the others she has given him, is exactly right and completely wrong.

     

    Or, Patrick gets glasses and thinks about identity. David helps.

    Summary

    “You two are the face of Rose Apothecary, David,” Alexis says in that breezy way that means she thinks he’s being deliberately obtuse. “And putting a face with the name personalizes your brand and helps build an emotional bond that increases customer loyalty.” 

    “Did you choke on a textbook?”
     

    Alexis thinks that making videos of David and Patrick talking about how they met is somehow going to help the store. David thinks he'd rather throw up.

    Summary

    “So,” Patrick says, placing one last kiss on David’s palm before letting go, “now that neither of us ‘smells like a summer camp’ anymore, how do you suggest we spend the evening?”

    David smirks, quirking an eyebrow at him. “Mm, I might have an idea or two.”
     

    David and Patrick celebrate their engagement.

    Summary

    Knitting is systematic fidgeting. It’s colors and textures and patterns. The goal is making something beautiful to put on your body or someone else’s. Of course David learns how.
