Oh, how I love to hear these words and I get overjoyed at the sound of them. My husband rarely buys me "treats" so when the occasion comes that I receive one, I can't contain myself.
Now, let me preface this story by saying that this was on Monday, after a VERY long, tiring weekend - I had a garage sale, went to a wedding, hosted a Swiss Colony Party, did laundry, cleaned my house...the list goes on. So after this weekend, I came down with a horrible cough and was aching all over.
So, imagine my excitement when my sweet hubby came home after work and the first words out of his mouth were "Honey, I bought you a surprise." Here is how the conversation went:
B: Honey, I bought you a surprise.
A: You did - what is it?
B: Hang on, you'll see.
A: Now is this a surprise you actually got for me, or something for you and I get the joy of helping you with?
B: No, this is just for you. Let me get it ready.....Ok, Close your eyes and hold your arms up.
So I closed my eyes and help up my arms. A second later, I could hear a "Beep" and felt something thrown in my lap.
B: Ok, OPEN! Do you like it?
A: Oh Brant, it's a nice...heating pad"
Ok, ladies, seriously??? Here I am thinking flowers? My favorite candy? A new sweater? Something, but a heating pad? His reasoning: "I knew you were achy and not feeling good, so I thought it would be great for you to relax with. And look at this awesome control - there are 7 different settings!"
I guess I have now discovered a new lesson: Women love sweet, thoughtful gifts. Men, they're practical!
