I was dating a boy a few years ago and he showed up two hours late for our date because his job interview ran over WAY long. The only reason why I was still there was because it was a nice day and I had a book to read. So I sat there, outside of the theatre waiting for him to show up for dinner and a movie night that week. When he showed up he walked up apologizing and bent over and kissed me on the forehead and told me :
I jumped up and grabbed it out of his hands and had the biggest smile on my face, it was as though he'd proposed to me. "Are you serious? Do you know...I mean....****!!!!!" I started trying to form sentences and then he hugged me and shushed me.
In case you're wondering why I sound like a crazy person, it's because in the middle ages giving someone an apple meant that you liked them and would like to court them. It was a clandestine way of displaying affection for someone. Enamored as I was with the boy I was just happy as a clam. Since then, the "wise man" has revealed himself as my very dear friend and the boy and I are now just good friends rather than an "item." But, the apple was still very cute.
