“Lemon, there is a word, a once special word…”
#still milking all the enjoyment out of this for as long as I can #tina and alec #not only are they letting the characters give each other those faces #but they are giving each other those faces and you can really tell #jack loves her #they love each other the end #jack not only realized that liz lemon is the only thing in his life that makes him happy #he also wanted to tell her that #and so he had to set up some elaborate scheme because he isn’t sure how to make her acknowledge how they feel #and he gets up the guts to say it but he has to give a big speech because simply saying #i love you and you have made me happy #would be too scary#and he is a very scaredy man #but she gets him
Lemon, there is a word, a once special word that’s been tragically co-opted by the romance industrial complex and I would hate to use it here and have you think that I am suggesting any type of romantic sentiment, let alone an invitation to scale bone mountain.
It’s a word that comes to us by way of the old high German luba from the latin lubera meaning “to be pleasing”. So, I’m going to use this word to describe how I feel about you in the way that our angalosaxin forefathers would have used it in reference to say…. “hot bowl of bear meet” or “your enemies skull, split”.
I love you too, Jack.
Have you spent time with each other’s families? Have you attended special events together? Such as class reunions, birthday or holiday celebrations, weddings, or extended car trips? Are you each other’s emergency contacts? Do you ever drink together at work? Perhaps while summarizing what you’ve learned over the day or week? Have you shared intimate details of your fears, hopes, and dreams? Both personal and professional. Is this the longest and perhaps most meaningful relationship in your life? Do you often find yourselves thinking the same thing and then saying it at the exact same time?
