Men are ignorant and uncaring - NOT!

3rd May 2010

It was my mum-in-law's birthday. We were shopping for her birthday present in one of the shopping malls. As I was parading with one of the bags that we picked (at the same time, imagining myself very much older but still looking chic :P ) , the husby told me that he ordered a bouquet of flowers to be sent to her sometime in the evening.

I pretended to be offended, that he did not ask for my opinion. I mean , hey , ladies should know better , right?

Wrong. He is actually rather good at choosing flowers (to me, at least) so when he said the bouquet contained red roses and (maybe) white carnations, it sounded pretty to me.

Later at home, while I was doing the laundry, someone rang the doorbell. I knew he opened the door but he dismissed it as some salesman. Obviously, I couldn't care less and just went about doing the household chores.

So imagine my (very pleasant) surprise when he tapped me on the shoulder , whilst I was marking papers, and presented me with this :

Sweet, isn't it? I love lilies.

Apparently, he made orders for two. But , I was pretty stunned for a while. It is not our wedding or engagement anniversary. Definitely not my birthday too.

(Some people say guys do nice things when they have a guilty conscience.... hhhhhmmmmm.... imagination ran wild for half a second.... hehe....)

I cannot remember how many hugs he received in return when he reminded me that 3rd May 2005 was when we first got together, when he first said those three words. :P

Doink! How could I forget?

The bouquet is now sitting pretty on my desk at the workstation. Since I spend most of my day-hours here, I might as well have it around. :) :) :)

So chivalry and romance are dead? I say NOT!

Happy Dating Anniversary , dearie !
