For a long time, I have thought flowers were a waste of money. For the entire time the Big Guy and I were dating, I told him to be buy me practical gifts. In fact, for the Valentine’s Day before we got married, he got me a Swiffer WetJet.
Most people would have been upset, but I loved it! I needed some sort of mop, and The Big Guy got it on clearance – what a guy, right? And, just this past Christmas he got me a Dyson Vacuum! I was thrilled! (as if you can’t tell by all of the exclamation points !!!!!!)
However, for Valentine’s Day, I let the Big Guy get me flowers. What I once called a huge waste of money made me really, really happy.
See, I got an office job – and accounting one, to be exact, and my office isn’t exactly colorful. Also, our anniversary is February 11th, exactly 3 days before Valentine’s day. So, for our anniversary he gets me flowers, which last me through Valentine’s day, for which he gets me a practical gift.
Win, win, right?
