Valentine Wishes

Valentines Day at my house is a pretty low-key affair. There are no long-stem red roses. There are no chocolate-dipped strawberries. There's no romantic serenade. Wine does make an appearance, but it's the $3 bottle of white merlot.

Words of undying devotion rarely cross lips. But tonight my husband broke tradition. I was minding my own business munching a conversation heart when he paused and looked deep into my eyes. So I stopped crunching and gazed back.

"You make staying awake exciting," he said.

"That's it? That's what I get? That's my Valentine?" I asked. You can imagine my tone.

"Well, I was just sitting here thinking, and that's what I thought," he eloquently explained.

I hope it didn't hurt his feelings that I didn't respond in kind. Or that I suggested we go to bed.

Actually, its a very profound and loving thing to say. But I would miss the flowers and/or chocolates etc.

It does sound like a very guy thing to say, after all...
