Today on the way home from work my husband stopped at the store to buy my daughter a sled for Christmas. When he got home, he brought with him, a dozen roses for me.
I was pretty surprised and asked why he got them for me.
He replied, "Well I saw the roses. And then I saw the cheap price and I thought of you..."
This is the same man, who, just today, was stopped in the school cafeteria by an imposing African-American 8th grade girl who proceeded to tell him,
"For an older white guy you're pretty cute. We all think so.." Done with a sweeping hand gesture to a table full of 8th grade girls.... (I would NEVER have said this to a teacher. Heck, I don't even say stuff like that to attractive men at parties....)
Yes, it is true folks, I am the envy of many a Middle School Girl.
The roses are very nice though.
