Valentine's.......

.... it snowed off and on all day today, but it never stayed long..... and being Valentine's Day, The Missus and I ventured into town in the snow-swirl to have lunch at one of the local Mexican places in Athens - and not a bad meal it was........ the waiter even called me "amigo" when he asked me if I was ready to order........

.... it struck me as quite odd, actually..... hell, I haven't been called "amigo" since the last week of The School of Infantry when my Puerto Rican classmate asked me if I knew where he could find a loose "punta" before we did our three-mile boots & utes run.....

.... anyway, the evening ended up going quite well........ we hit the grocery store after lunch and stocked the shelves for what she had asked for to celebrate this Valentine's Day.... namely, home made chocolate chocolate-chip muffins...... and after a quick jaunt out to allrecipes.com, I produced the chocolate chocolate-chip muffins......... she'll be taking the leftovers to work with her tomorrow evening, I suspect....... I mean, NO WOMAN can eat twelve chocolate chocolate-chip muffins in the course of a week, right?...... much less in the course of three days?..... (I figure that they only have a shelf-life of about three days.)..... so she has to share them with the co-workers, or they will be wasted......

.... in other news, the cold weather sleeping bag that I ordered for her last week arrived yesterday......... she unwrapped it on the floor, climbed in, and sat there drinking warm tea with milk while "The Ghost and Mrs. Muir" played on the television...

.... when the movie ended and Mrs. Muir died - and her ghost wandered off with Captain Gregg - she shed quite a few tears as the credits rolled..... I crept down from the couch and asked her what was bothering her, and she simply said, "I always loved this movie..."......

..... I was ok with that at the time........ but personally, I think that she is horrified that I bought her a cold-weather sleeping bag........ and two days before Valentine's Day?........

.... damn, it must suck being married to me...... heh......

..... good god, I can't wait for Easter.......

Ummm... I could eat 12 chocolate chocolate chip muffins in three days. That's only four a day... There would be no sharing of my muffins.

I could eat 12 chocolate muffins before the week was out. At least you did not buy her a vacuum cleaner or shotgun.

In my version her ghost runs off with Captain Morgan

Mexican food on Valentine's Day... how romantic... especially when the vaporous aftermath begins, right around Romance o'Clock...

...maybe you can go the playful route and throw each other a couple of Dutch Ovens... nothing warms a lady's heart like a Dutch Oven...

I agree with Bou. I could eat 4 a day with no problem at all. Let's see. One at breakfast. One at second breakfast. One at elevensies. And one at lunch. Four, all before the afternoon really set in. :)

Twelve muffins - piece of cake - really. That's the sad part. I could eat that many in 3 days (2 if I really put my mind to it). And I'm with Bou - there will be no sharing. They are chocolate and they are mine...
