And I can't count the number of Valentine's Days we haven't spent together because he travelled a lot for his job. But he's always - ALWAYS - managed to do something special for me. And this morning was no different.
We'd already discussed that we'd given each other our Valentine's Day presents - his for me was the two night stay at the hotel room for my course a while back, mine for him was a copy of the second season of Two and a Half Men - one of his favourite shows. (Boy, that sounds lopsided, doesn't it?) And I took him out to dinner last night. So I wasn't expecting anything.
But this morning - after a hectic morning of driving Guitar Hero around so he could deliver roses and a teddy bear to his girlfriend - I came home to discover that somehow, unseen by me, Gizmo Guy had slid a special Valentine's Day Toblerone Bar complete with rose into my laptop case. Now I have to admit that I'm not a big fan of chocolate. I know, I know, that's almost sacriligious to admit, isn't it? But the thing weighs nearly a pound. If I eat it all myself, it will take me weeks to shed the pounds on the treadmill. Heck, who am I kidding? Months if not years! So I'll wait until he comes back this evening and share it with him then. Which may be what he was hoping anyway. ;)
Here's hoping you got something special from someone special, too.
Happy Valentine's Day!
