I know you might think I’m bribing you, but I’m not THAT desperate. You don’t need to be mine for me to make you a cheesecake, but buying me flowers won’t hurt your chances either.

I did actually receive flowers “just because” the other day from the person who is getting this cheesecake. I was already planning on making it, but like I said, flowers didn’t hurt ;).
