She loves me thiiiiiiiiiiis much!

My wife has to work late tonight, which really sucks. But being the shallow type of guy I am, she made sure to ease the sting with gifts. Lots of Valentine gifts.

A couple of weeks ago a box from Amazon showed up at the house and inside was a 12-DVD set called "50 Horror Classics". That was my Valentine's Day gift, and I looked upon it, and it was good.*

Then, last night she presented me with a card, some candy and a copy of The Beast! I talked about the movie here (it's not a horror movie, it's a war movie), and after almost a year of looking in the bargain bins at WalMart for this title, she found it for me**.

I'm a lucky guy, and believe me, I know it.

* I already had about half of these movies in my library, but this collection will allow me to sell off or trade in several DVD's, and with whatever money that brings I plan to pick up this for starters.

** Highly recommended, and for less than $6.00, you can't go wrong.

Yes, I know it's all about you.... But I'm curious, what did you get for her?

At first I listed exactly what I "got for her", but then after thinking about it, it's really none of your business.

We don't celebrate Valentine's Day so much as we've lived it every single day for the past 24 years. Except for a few inevitable periods where we've been apart, she's heard "I love you" at *least* once a day, and when possible she's gotten the hugs and kisses to go along with it. She gets flowers several times a year for no special reason, and we buy each other little gifts just because.

I mention all that not as a way of keeping score, because we don't. Most of what we do for each other is to just be there and do for each other, by all the little kindnesses that lets the other know you care.

Sorry if I misunderstood your comment, and I'm sorry that you seem to have misunderstood my post. I mostly have fun here on Rocket Jones, but if you'd care to learn more about the life my wife and I share, feel free to check out the archives. There's a whole category called "Seriously", I'd suggest you start there.
