Skeletons in my closet

The silent running dialogue that I often have with myself.

Women make it so hard!

Valentines Day

Okay, here is the deal…my wife almost fooled me for V-Day.

She stated in earnest that she did not expect a gift or anything for V-Day.

I almost bought it! I was almost suckered into not getting anything but a card. But luckily I am the master of the last minute comeback. I set reservations for Ruth Chris, commandeered a dozen roses, and set to spring my trap, early this morning.

Ruth Chris was a job in itself, but with some friends help and a certain charming smile I got my table at 7:30pm, in the most romantic corner of the place.

I wake this morning to spring my trap, and low and behold my wife cancels my plans from the start.

Closet Owner: Happy V-day, baby here is a card with instructions for this afternoon.

Co-Closet Owner: Oh, thanks baby…(30 seconds later) oh baby, we cant go the baby isn’t feeling well, and I don’t want to leave him with someone else when he is sick.

CO: Well, maybe your Mom can watch him for like an hour or so?

CCO: I think they are going out for 7pm. Don’t worry we can do something next year!

CO: Dangone!

Okay, so I scrapped those plans, called canceling my dinner reservations, and reset them for lunch. I am on my way to pick her up with the 12 roses.

Holler…. oh and let me know what yall did on this pagan, commercial, expensive gifting day just for women.

    Hey...a shout out to Pagans!! You know you'z mah dawg now! HAHAHAHAH!!! Hope you had a fabulous lunch (and that baby feels better). We're doing V-Day on Friday (took me some coaxing for me to agree). But it's cool...he likes HIS gift, so that's all that matters!

    Happy V-Day!

    Happy V-Day!

    I also told my fiance not to get me anything. This afternoon I heard shuffling at the door, I didn't get up to look, he called me a few minutes later and told me to look on the porch. I looked and found pink roses. It was lovely.
