Valentine's Day: Ten Years and it has Come to This

This morning, my counter was filled with cards and two small boxes of chocolates.  The girls each got a card and box of chocolates from my husband and I got a card.  When my husband got home, I asked him where my Valentine's Day gift was.  He looked at me with a cross of confusion and embarrassment.  He tried to save face by saying, "You said our Sushi dinner on Saturday when we went out was to celebrate Valentine's Day."  I wanted to make him squirm.  That was an off-hand comment I made at the restaurant.  "Yes, but that isn't my gift."  He retorted by saying, "Well, you tell me not to get flowers."  That's right--$80 for a bouquet of flowers seems a waste.  I respond, "Yes, I have told you to pick up some flowers at Kroger's for $20 or buy something I can plant in the yard."  He squirms.  "You could have bought that perfume I wanted," I add. "What perfume?"

"Is this what it has come to?  Ten years and it comes down to a card?" I say with a smile, letting him know he is off the hook.

Yes, it has been over ten years and a card for Valentine's Day is more than sufficient for me and he knows it.  With him, I have all that I will ever need.  Happy Valentine's Day, hubs!  I love you just as much now as ever!

Why is it always ok for women to make men squirm, but we're not allowed to make women squirm without backlash from other women? Haha! Just a question!
