Last night I decided to surprise my wife. Stay with me, this doesn’t go off the rails with some “please don’t over share”. I decided to make her dinner and have it ready when she got home. To be clear, this was no small effort on my part as I had to race to the market for fresh fish and wine and then get it all together before she got home. Good news, I pulled it off and she was somewhere between surprised and totally shocked.
Now that response, though it was what I had hoped for, left me asking “why was it so easy to surprise her?” The answer of course was that I seldom if ever do this for her. Not too good a track record. For all the laundry, all the cooked meals, all the cleaning and effort to keep our home so beautiful, I am guilty of not even taking the time to cook her a meal once in a while. Lesson learned. And here is a request for the rest of you readers out there, take the time to give back the favor for your partner. I am suspecting they deserves no less. If you are one who regularly does this anyway, I am proud of you. I know YOU exist, it was just that I didn’t.
After the gushing over the meal and the points in the bank; badly needed points in the bank, I knew what I needed to do. Eggs over easy, dry muffin and coffee, all served in bed. However, based on the additional level of shock, it might be best if I space this out. What good will it do if I give her a heart attack.
