Love Notes

In February 2004, I went to a Valentine's activity where we wrote love notes to our husbands. I decided the best way to show my affection was to make the Coach laugh. So I recorded amusing memories on little notes to hide all over the house. Apparently, I hid them well. I found the following notes this evening, while sorting through a box from my closet.



Dear Coach,

Remember when I found out I was pregnant, and I couldn't wait to tell you, but you were in the bathroom reading the Dell catalog, and it was a really great catalog so you were taking a long time, so I finally told you to come out and you did, and I told you we were having a baby, and you hugged me and were really excited? Remember that? You're a good dad, even when it means leaving your Dell catalog.

Love,

Boss

Dear Coach,

Remember when you said you were worried about me having the baby, and I said it would be fine because of the drugs, and you asked if I was just going to bite on a leather strap like Joseph Smith, and I said "No, but I'll probably still refuse the demon liquor," and you said "Bring on the bourbon!" Remember that? That was funny. You are funny.

Love,

Boss

I like these notes. Good job finding them (and hiding them).

Kind of like finding Easter candy months later. Did you find any of that in the closet? Remember the gum drops from 1947 that someone found in Grandma & Grandpa H's house? After 50 years they were still yummy!

Mark, I don't remember them being "yummy" so much as crunchy.

Dear Boss and Coach,
You are cute and funny and I love you. Also your cute, funny prototype.

This is so cute. 50 year-old gum drops sound kinda yucky, though.

They were Jelly Beans!
