They say that what women are looking for in a man is a sense of humour, among other things.

Sadly, if you haven't found him yet, you're out of luck. I married him.

Valentine's Day morning found me sitting on the couch reading the paper. Spike got out of bed, stood before me with his hands behind his back (holding a box of chocolates, of course) and recited the following:

It's Valentine's Day
And I got you a treat
It wasn't expensive
But it's really quite sweet

It's also because
You work really hard
And I guess by now
You wish there was a card

But there isn't.

That's right, ladies and gentlemen - I got poetry for Valentine's Day! And chocolate. And a lot of laughter.

To quote one of my favourite bloggers - "I'd marry him again in a heartbeat."

Oooooooooh how sweet is that.
I just loved his poem...very funny.
You sure have a keeper there Patti.
(And who really needs a card when you've got the chocolates!)

On special occassions like these I dust off my home publishing software and design a card. Always delete the text that's there and replace it with prose or poetry to fit the occassion. Now I reveal what is in my heart. Or perhaps a slice of my bent humour. It means more to me and I believe it means more to Linda.

I like Spike's approach as well. Well done thou bard of the heart.
