Never having to say you’re sorry?
I dated a guy who actually thought that. He adamently refused to apologize for stuff. The relationship did not go well.
He also told me that I was waiting for my white knight who wouldn’t show up, so suck it up and stick it out with him, because he was the best I was ever going to get.
Like I said, things didn’t go well.
At the time, we both had a lot of notions of what love was, most of which were wrong. Since then, I’ve learned a few things about love, and thought I’d share. Feel free to add your revelation to the list.
Love is when he calls and tells you not to cook, he’ll pick up pizza on the way home from work.
Love is when he lets you sleep in on Saturday mornings by taking your child out of the house for a while, and returns in the late morning with a hot almond steamer, just for you. There is truly no better way to wake up.
Love is when he turns off “Battlestar Galactica” so you can watch “Lost”.
Love is when he is courting you with all his might, and writes you an 18 page letter (front and back!) about how awesome he is, and all the reasons you should hang with him, and the first line is, “I’m kind to old ladies and small animals.”
Love is when you see the man you married hold his newborn son for the first time, and you watch the tears in his eyes and the pure joy in his soul as he refuses to let anybody else near the baby.
Love is when you are pregnant with said son, totally irrational, completely nuts, yelling at your husband about something entirely irrelevant, and he says nothing. He just looks at you, puts his hand in his pocket, and pulls out a granola bar, which he hands to you with a kiss to your forehead.
So for all those single ladies who are still waiting for that white knight to show up, a few words. If he tells you that he’s your white knight, you really should wonder. If he tells you he’s kind to old ladies and small animals, and can tell you the entire history of Gettysburg without missing a beat, well then. You know you’ve got a keeper.
For all the married women, I wanna know. What is love for you?
And just a side note: Valentine’s Day is in full swing at our house today. I have already snitched 2 suckers and a candy bar from my kid’s Valentine’s Day “mailbox”, and heaven only knows how many Necco Wafer turned candy hearts I have inhaled. My child, I’m sure, has imbibed far more sugar than that, especially since he didn’t seem to notice or care about my raiding of his treats. Only a child who is well above and beyond his sugar tolerance would allow such a travesty. But the good news is that he’s only melted down twice today with only one episode of screaming in another child’s face while throwing sand. Ah, good times. Happy Valentine’s Day, everyone.
