You Can't Make This Stuff Up

I was about to get in the bath tub when you-know-who came back inside with a present and a little bundle of flowers from Wegman's.  He wrote out a pretty card while I opened the gift.  I love presents.  Who doesn't?  A small card was under the top of the box, which was quite frozen and covered with frost.  I opened the card which read "To Robyn on Valentine's Day - I'll be home soon and I miss you very much."  Something like that.  I said what???  Apparently, my busy spouse had taken advantage of his secretary's large number of gifts and procured one for me from her.  He didn't realize there was a card tucked inside.  Ron is away in North Dakota drilling for natural gas and living in his truck.  Ron is very homesick and sent quite a few tokens of his love home to Robyn.  Okay, whatever, the intentions were good.  I'll enjoy the chocolate covered strawberries when they thaw out, and the card and frozen flowers will look cute on my desk at school.  He climbed ladders and dragged the hose around for me this morning, and that's a big deal.  I might actually get to work on time today - an amazing coup indeed.  Happy Lover's Day everyone.  Remember - Love is patient, love is kind, love is never far behind.
