Me: Let’s not get anything for each other on Valentine’s Day.
Husband: For real?
Me: Yeah. Is that ok?
Husband: Yeah, it’s ok but you have to promise to really not get me anything.
Me: Well, I picked out a card a few weeks ago so I’ll probably give you that, but I’m not going to buy you anything else. Ok?
Husband: You didn’t get me anything right? I don’t want to not have anything for you if you got something for me.
Me: I didn't buy you anything, I only got you that card.
Husband: I didn’t get you a card.
Me: Would you prefer I didn't give you the card?
Husband: Yeah, I think that would be best.
I think we win the Super Romantic Award, no?
I did sing him my Valentine song this morning though. That should count for something.
Will you be my v-a-l-e-n-t-i-n-e? If you will you'll surely know how happy I will be! Sugar, spice, and all things nice, that's what you are to me. Will you be my v-a-l-e-n-t-i-n-e?
(He said yes. Score!)
(Do you think singing that song gets me out of having to make dinner tonight?)
(Yeah, I don't think so either.)
Happy Valentine's day everyone!
