To Err is Human, To Err with Flowers is Divine

So Saturday night before I left to get together with some friends, Jack surprised me with flowers. He handed them to me and gave me a kiss and said, "Happy Anniversary--it's the anniversary of the day we first kissed--April Fool's Day." I said thank you as I chuckled a little, because while we did have our first kiss on April Fool's Day, Saturday was March 1st. The first thing he said when he realized what had happened was that I couldn't tell anyone about his faux pas-ever.Then last night as he was looking at the flowers, he laughed and said I could tell people because it was a funny story. When I was talking to Amy I told her the story and Jack's response. She was like, "What? People are going to think he is a bad husband because he brought you flowers just because he was overly thoughtful?"

Oh to have a partner who makes those mistakes...So thanks for the flowers, Jacky!

The other funny note, is that again, after mulling over the "mistake", we laughed because he replied, "The worst part about it is that I have been planning this all week!"

That was perfectly put, to err with flowers truly IS divine!

I think it is adorable how you called him, "Jacky". I would put an emoticon here but, I am trying to curtail my emoticon use.

For some reason the world will not comment on this post--so Jack, here the second comment:Guess it's time for a new post!

Maybe they are threatened by our love and admiration for each other?

Jaime said...

Or maybe it is their insecurity that we will judge them by their comments and think less of them?

Hi guys, I had a lovely moment laughing at this little event. Jack, was it like thinking you were drinking Sprite and then it turns out to be water, but on a bigger scale. Wow, you just gained one month. Think what you can do with those 31 days.

i didn't comment because my comment was mentioned. i take issue with commenting on things that i've already commented on in "real life". i do not like to re-comment. please post items that i have not commented on so that i can comment.
comment, comment, comment.

I agree with Lauren...I too am threatened. I waited to come up with something witty but it never happened (surprise, surprise) and so I didn't post. I'm ashamed.
p.s.--it is time for a new post

I didn't comment, but I forwarded it to friends and telling them how proud I am and how happy for the two of you for building such a fun loving supportive relationship.
