#Reverbbroads11 prompt for Day 28:Do you consider yourself a romantic person? Do you prefer fancy dinners, roses and chocolate romantic, or are you more non-traditional? What’s the most romantic thing you have ever done for a loved one or had done for you? (from Kassie)
Hmm, let me answer this prompt by explaining my last Mother’s Day gift. My husband and I don’t exchange Christmas presents. We tend to look for things we both want for the house, or places we want to go, or just a simple date night. When it comes to Mother’s Day, Father’s Day, and birthdays, we tend to have a little fun – read: go overboard.
So, this past May, for Mother’s Day, when my husband was hinting that he needed ideas, I told him.
Me: What I would love, more than anything, is to have my Jeep reeeeeaaally cleaned. Cleaned out, washed, detailed, the works.
My husband: Really?
Me: Seriously. I’m in that car so much, and it’s driving me nuts – and I don’t want to do it.
My husband: OK.
So, if by romantic you mean please-do-the-stuff-that-I-don’t-want-to-do, then yes, I am romantic. If you mean those sweet nothings and rose petals and candlelight dinners, then no, I’m just hopeless.
