I am not a lovey dovey person. By this I mean I am not one to write love notes, poems, or buy cute gifts. In fact I am so “not that person”, I feel uncomfortable with PDA, and really find Award Winning Dad and I being sarcastic about how much we dislike each other, our idea of being cute and affectionate. It’s weird, I know. So imagine this out of character moment I had when shortly after meeting Award Winning Dad I found myself buying this card.
I know, I barely recognized myself standing at the checkout with this card, but I am sure it meant something, like a big glaring sign that I am purchasing this card because this guy was different.
Award Winning Dad is much the same; not a mushy guy. In the beginning he would make dinner, or buy flowers but that was courting right? He too is “not that person”; not into PDA, or expressing his undying love in public, but I do know that joke he made about wrinkles on my forehead was his way of saying I love you.
So a few months after giving him that card, I received this card from him.
He searched for the same card I gave him, and gifted it to me. I know it’s not flowers, diamonds, and over the top romantic gestures for the world to see, it was so much better than that.
Happy Valentine’s Day.
