A Converstaion

Last week, Mr. Sophanne (ms) and I (me) had the following conversation:

ms: Let's not buy anything for Valentine's Day. Let's just do cards.

me: o.k.

I really am good with that. I struggle with the whole thing.

me: If we do cards, we'll both have to sneak off and get cards and then we'll just throw them away. Let's go to the store, pick out cards for each other, give them to each other in the store and then go home.

ms: or we could just write our own cards.

me: o.k.

ms: I've already started mine.

End of Conversation.

Pulled in hook, line and sinker I was though he says that was not his intention. After a few days of panic, I realized that I had the emails we exchanged when we first started dating. Some of the things he wrote are what convinced me that he was an interesting person to get to know (and eventually marry.)

After culling through some of the dialogue, I remembered that there was this whole give and take metaphor regarding cows- lots of puns and pretty funny. My "card" is now ready- I decided that it would look better in a frame. (and he won't be able to throw it away.)

I'm pretty sure it will embiggen if you want to read the words- I can't promise they'll make sense to anyone but me.

The words make perfect sense to me -- maybe I am a cow person, too? Great card!

Milking the metaphore for every drop, I'd say he got the cream of the crop!

I like how you beefed up your card with cow references. Sometimes inside jokes are the best. We all need mooooooooore in our lives.

I like the whole "make your own card" idea, too. It's sweet!

This is so cute!

I'm sorry, I can't think of a cow reference to add that hasn't already been said here, good job everyone ;)
