For Valentine’s Day this year, we decided to do very small gifts for each other. I created this crossword puzzle, titled How Much Do You Remember involving questions regarding how we met and little factoids about me. He did AMAZINGLY well answering these questions. Quite impressive.
As for Sean’s gift to me, he bought me a manicure/eye brow wax. Romantic? Not exactly. But definitely something I wanted and needed…but a luxury I can’t afford for myself anymore. Of course, because he’s Sean…he found a way to ruin the gift!
Flash back to sometime last year when he accompanied me to a manicure:
Sean: You should paint your nails blue!
Colleen: Yeah. Totally. That’d be cool…if I was 13 and still had my Hello Kitty backpack.
Sean: I dunno…I bet it would be totally punk.
Colleen: Tell you what…the day you buy me a manicure, you can choose the color I paint my nails.
Flash Forward back to the present. Sean was now paying for my manicure. He chose a cobalt blue nail polish…and sure enough, it doesn’t look punk. It looks terrible. Afterwards, we got pastries and coffee at a little bakery and he couldn’t stop looking at my nails.
Sean: Wow. Those are some blue nails.
Colleen: Yes, yes they are.
Sean: Um, maybe a different shade of blue would have been better?
Colleen: No. No it wouldn’t be.
Sean: (sigh) Yeah.
Colleen: ….so, who was right?
Sean: (heavier sigh) You were.
Ahh, the validation. At least one good thing came of the blue nails…admittance that I was RIGHT. It’s so rare that I hear those words (Not because I’m not right often…but because Sean is THAT STUBBORN. Then again, so am I).
