Valentine’s Day Post Mortem

I’m sure that a gazillion tons of candy were sold last weekend, not to mention a bazillion roses and mountains of cards.
I have nothing against flowers, chocolates and a mushy card.
But gentlemen, I have to tell you that nothing trumps:

taking the compost out in a snowstorm
holding hands while watching TV
looking deeply into her eyes
calling when you’re running late
calling just because
taking the car in for the oil change
laughing together
going to her doctor’s appointment with her
wearing your seatbelt
not solving her problem
solving her problem
asking the waiter to hold the onions
fighting fair
learning the magic phrase “that doesn’t do a thing for you”
loading the dishwasher
welcoming her into your arms at night
saying please and thank you
handing her the remote control
dancing in the kitchen
the truth of I love you

Hi DMM -
Yes indeed, Mr. Brown probably didn't need to bring home flowers after his burst of domesticity!

Hi Wendy -
Very well put!
And all those small gestures leave a lot in "the bank" to draw against when our loved one drives us mad!
