Friday: I made DK a pretty good dinner. New York steaks, roasted asparagus, and melt-in-your-mouth Mushroom Risotto. Muy bueno. He loved it so much that he broke out my Valentine early. It was a big pink-wrapped box of Belgian chocolates. I ripped off the paper, lifted the lid, and removed the padded paper from the top... and found that someone had tampered with the package. Two thirds of the candy had been unceremoniously dumped, and replaced with... a brand-new cellphone! It was pretty cool. Pull-out keyboard, touch screen. I was excited. I have been without a cellphone for six weeks now. He asked me: Do you like it? Of course I like it! Oh... then you probably don’t care about this (pulling another little box from his bag of tricks):
Yes, an iPhone. He said I could choose between the two phones. Man, I hate when he does that. How can I not choose the iPhone, for goodness sake? It doesn’t have a phone number yet, because AT&T did not hear that it was Valentine’s Day, and that they should make my day by letting us add a line... no... they do not share my love of romance. But we are going to figure that out this week.
Saturday: Drove down to pick up Ethan from the Marine base for his three-day weekend. 72 degrees. Ocean views. Not a bad way to spend the morning.
Sunday: Making BBQ brisket, macaroni and cheese, homemade rolls... for Valentine’s Day, yes. But for this guy:
Happy Valentine’s Day... love love love love love love...
