Ok the truth is I am not a big fan Valentine’s Day, why should we express our love to our loved ones only once a year! I say it all the time, especially when I need his credit card or I need him to take the little one out.
However with all that said, Valentine’s Day is falling on a Thursday. It gives me just another silly reason to go out on a date-night. So before I made any plans I thought of checking, if had he have any prior work commitments on Thursday.
Me: Honey, how is your Thursday evening looking like, will you be busy?
Hubby: I think not!
Me: Then let’s go out, what do you think?
Hubby: Sounds like a good plan, what about the baby-sitter?
Me: That is taken care of
Hubby: Then let’s go out for a walk on the beach road.
Me: Walk on the beach road? (Thinking in my head: Sounds romantic, but just a walk, may be a dinner too??)
Hubby: Yeah, I have been planning to do the half-marathon for sometime now, let’s do it this Thursday!
Then slowly I get back to work, pretending I didn’t hear that bit of the conservation. Knowing my hubby so well, it’s a given that was purely an innocent remark. He might not even have realised that it’s Valentines.
For rest of the men folk here is my piece of advice – A half-marathon on weekend night, double it up on a Valentines Day – A sure shot way of getting in wifey’s bad books for the rest of the year!
