Please Note: This is a fun and light-hearted post and one that is not to be taken too seriously!
My husband is a great hubby and gives me amazing presents. Some of very thoughtful, some are total surprises, and some are things that I want but would never buy myself. Yes, sometimes my practical ‘don’t waste money’ intuition kicks in and I usually talk myself out of buying those expensive items for myself. My husband carefully listens while taking notes, and he usually buys the things that I would love to have but would never treat myself to.
However, like most things, there has been a few hiccups along the way. And while my friends are oohing and ahhing over a new necklace or purse or camera my husband has bought me, I am sometimes reminded of those not so cool presents – the ones that, with time, I have begun to appreciate the overall gesture and the ones that have now become the subject of laughter between us two.
So, in lieu of Valentine’s Day being only a few days away and the fact that my husband has been sharing some of my secrets on the blog lately, I thought share the worst present ever given to me by him.
The Worst Present
I guess I should start from the beginning and tell you all about it. It was nearing Christmas a few years ago, after the Vegas incident, and I suddenly noticed that I had a wrinkle or two under my eyes while looking in the mirror. Of course, I am a woman who values her looks and I made a big deal out of it. I screamed and I called out to my husband. He rushed into the room and arrived in a panic because he thought I was after hurting myself or something much more serious had happened. Then, I showed him my wrinkle or two.
And with the holidays just around the corner, he thought I was giving him a hint of what I wanted for Christmas!
So, off he went to several stores selling cosmetics and beauty products and purchased three bottles of anti-aging and anti-wrinkling cream.
He was all excited to give me the present, but….
it turned to regret immediately when he saw the look on my face and when I started to cry!!
‘Do you think I look old? Are you giving me a hint? How could you ever buy a woman anti-aging cream?’
However, I did use the cream and although it didn’t make me look like a kid in her teens, it did act as a good, but rather expensive, moisturizer.
And to all the guys reading this, shower your girl with flowers and chocolates and things that she loves, but do not, I repeat do not, buy a girl anti-aging cream.
However, if you really want to be in the dog house, then buy it for her. If you want to be labelled insensitive, then go for it. If you want to be given the cold shoulder, then I suggest you try it. And if you are looking for an easy way to break it off with her, then maybe you should consider it!!
And as my husband always jokes with me and says ‘It is all about the girls, not the guys.’ And I always remind him that a happy wife equals a happy life! 🙂
Only five days away ’til Valentine’s Day [and this girl’s birthday]! Do you have any plans for Sweetheart’s Day?
