Post V-day, Suck Up, Alert!
When your wife says for Valentine's Day "let's just do cards," she's lying.
She may not even know she's lying, but she is.
Don't be fooled. I wasn't.
My present (which involved her dogs) led her to declare this, "The best Valentine's Day ever."
Tip to you girls: Guys like such fawning.
To further celebrate we watched "War of the Roses" one of the darker comedies about a failed marriage. She picked it. And later, the surprisingly good 1995 version of "Bye Bye Birdie."
This morning, I got coffee in bed and the slack to make fun of it.
"This better be Fair Trade Coffee."
For those of you not in the know, I live in (actually near) the "Fair Trade Town" of Media.
As Media's web site, advises:
"Most Fair Trade certified coffee, tea, and chocolate in the US is certified organic and shade grown. This means that the products you buy maintain biodiversity, provide shelter for migratory birds, and guarantee a future for the earth."
I say that better be a money-back guarantee.
But then I hear from the kitchen: "It's Folgers."
Oh well, men, women, dogs. That's enough biodiversity for one household.
UPDATE: Check out the logo for Fair Trade here. Do you think maybe they stole it from this Star Trek episode.
