Dr Love is challenging us to "spread the love" EVERYWHERE....so here we go!
I would love to hear about some nice LOVE stories from everyone....pick out something special that took you by surprise.
Heck you can even tell us the anti-LOVE story, you know the one, the one that went totally wrong, but ended up in a nice make up story.
My Mr Man from rare time to time can surprise me. Yes, I was with him when he bought my engagement ring. He was getting aggravated because I wouldn't come over to the case and help him in his selection. I said "well if I thought you were serious, I'd help you in a skinny minute" and his reply was "I AM SERIOUS"...................
He of course tried to go for the larger stone, I said NO, and picked out a nice 1/2 carat, you know, just for everyday wear.
When he picked up the ring (from being sized) we made dinner plans at our favorite restaurant, dressed nicely, sitting across from each other, candle lit on the table, cozy. The waitress took our drink order and all of a sudden Tom says (while patting down his pockets)..........
"I left my cigarettes in the truck, I'll be right back!"
OK, go get your cigs man.
I can see him as he's coming in the restaurant, and I'm paying no particular attention to him.
As he reaches the table he pulls from behind him 24 white roses!
I am totally shocked! He's never brought me flowers (unless he was in the dog house!).....and further more, where the hell where they hiding? I didn't smell them, or see them at all before!!!
He was so proud of himself for pulling that one off. It seems that on his way home, he had stopped to get them, snuck them into the bed of the truck (we have a flat cover on it) before ever coming in the house!
There I sat with 2 dozen white roses and the waiter asked "special occassion?" and Tom said "I hope so, I just asked her to marry me!" Even though we were pretty much regulars at at this restaurant, the waiter was cautious before offering congrats, saying "well, I hope you got the answer you wanted".
So do I...........................
