A romantic little story for Valentine's Day

Last week, Miss Doxie told a wonderfully silly riddle. Over the weekend, I repeated it to The Husband.

What's green and fuzzy, and if falls out of a tree and lands on you, it will kill you?

A POOL TABLE.

And he laughed, and said that yes, that was the funniest riddle he'd heard all day, but he also said that he was laughing because I was giggling so much.

As we were putting away laundry on Sunday night (we are so exciting), I riddled him, "What's red and shiny, and if it falls out of a tree and lands on you, it will kill you?"

"A Corvette?" he ventured.

"No, a--well, yes. But NO. A MINI COOPER."

He laughed, and then made me keep putting away clothes.

Last night, while dinner was in the oven, I lay down on the couch with my feet in his lap.

"What's grey and scaly, and if it falls out of a tree and lands on you, it will kill you?" He raised his eyebrows. "A Brontosaurus."

He laughed again. And that is why I am in love with him. (He obviously loves me for my high-brow sense of humor. And my enchilada recipe.)

Sorry, I'm going to be the crap bitter friend who says "BOO on Valentine's Day!" Glad you have something positive to appreciate.
