Valentine’s Day is coming up. Generally that means paying a FORTUNE to have flowers delivered to my wife at her office. She loves it and I guess I kinda like it too. The sending the flowers part, that is, not the over paying.
So this year, Valentine’s Day is on a Friday. I was kinda nervous because Merrin generally takes Fridays off. So, I was worried that the whole flower thing would be shot. However, in an interesting and ironic twist, it just so happens that Merrin is working this Friday (Valentine’s Day). Hmmm. Oliver Stone should check into this, I think.
So during the big move-in, I bring up the subject to try to 1) feel out what she might be wanting and 2) to determine if she would be working. Well, Merrin has decided that she doesn’t want flowers this year. While I suspect she wouldn’t mind if I sent flowers, what she really wants is a new bed set for the guest room.
Knowing that we just spent like a bajillion dollars to buy this house, I cannot do flowers and bedding. This places me in a very difficult position and I’d appreciate your sage comments.
Do I do what my wife says she wants and opt for the bedding & not send flowers? Or, do I send the flowers so she gets the attention in her office that she loves but she insists she doesn’t want and forgo the bedding?
