What do you get wife for Valentine's Day?

My wife’s words surprised me.

Made me chuckle, too.

“Honey,” Sherri said the other night. “I don’t know what to get you for Valentine’s Day.”

Don’t worry about it, I told her. Just having you in my life is the only gift I really want.

Or something mushy like that.

She rolled her eyes.

Then I started thinking about what she said.

Am I being set up?


That was the educated opinion of several male colleagues who have been married much longer than yours truly.

Our first anniversary is a couple of months off.

To celebrate the milestone, we were considering a week in Maui — until we found out we’d have to take out another mortgage to pay for it.

Or hit the Lotto, finally.

Loading up on more original Hawaiian shirts will have to wait.

St. Augustine, here we come.

Anyway, what to do about Valentine’s Day?
