Valentine’s Day was quickly approaching. I was sad to learn that PC really didn’t care much about Valentine’s Day because in the past he’d never really had a reason to celebrate although in college those few single ones I spent I referred to it as S.A.D day, Single’s Awareness Day. But from talking to him about V-day he was excited about it this year, he just couldn’t remember the date. I couldn’t help but poke a little fun at him because it never changes, always February 14.
A few weeks prior to this we’d been at the DAV store donating some items and while we were there we walked around and found a Philco Refrigerator. One of the old style fridge’s. We really liked it but the price on it was steep, they wanted $300. We passed. Well his dad went back a couple times and checked on it for us. Finally the week of V-day went over and offered them $75 for it. They accepted our offer and we took the deal. On Thursday night, the 11th, he and I headed to town to pick up the fridge. On our way home I was yakking away about how this was our Valentine’s Day present to each other. He wasn’t allowed to get me flowers, etc, and eventually the topic of marriage came up again.
-I so want to ask you to marry me, but I’m scared to death to ask your dad. I’m afraid to answer that question.
-I know. It’s no big deal. When you have an answer to that question you’ll answer him and then we’ll go from there. I’m not worried.
-I know but I’m not sure I’ll ever be able to answer that question.
-I’m NOT worried about it. When the time’s right it’ll happen.
-I know but How am I going to support his little girl, that even scares me right now.
-Hey I can take care of myself. That’s not why I would marry you. If that was the reason then I’d find some rich suga daddy and I don’t want that. I want YOU!
-I know but still…
-Anyway I really like our Valentine’s Day present. It’s the most unique one I’ve seen anyone get 🙂 And remember, NO flowers!
