So we always exchange cards and crap. Every year, the husband gives me the sappy, cheesy, "You're everything I've always needed and wanted. I love you so much and always will" card. He's all happy and proud of himself. He likes giving me sappy cards with beautiful sayings - as long as he doesn't have to actually say all that crap. Mine are always like this year's gem:
"Of Course, I Love You!"
"Who else would put up with my crap?"
I personally love the word "crap" so I thought it sounded more like my true feelings. It means more because that's something I would actually write. I put my heart and soul in finding the perfect card this year! I would never write any of that crap about him being my rock and the love-of-my-life and that I'm so happy I met him. He already knows that - that's why I'm still around after 14 years.
So the typical person might think I'm a heartless, crappy wife. But isn't it more heartless and crappy if I were to pick some card that does not jive with what I would actually say or write if I were an actual poet and serenading my husband? I think so.
