A few days ago Mr. Case came home very excited that he had a surprise for me!
I love surprises!
In the past, he has set out roses, balloons, etc. and I have been oblivious (usually after a long day at work when I come home and just want to plop on the couch.) He is forever chiding me that I don't notice his gestures of love. This is probably why he went out of his way to tell me I was getting a treat, rather than waiting for me to notice it on my own.
In perhaps the most obvious symbol that our marriage is evolving, I must share with you what the surprise was: a new toothbrush.
Friends, do not balk. My husband spoils me with the requisite flowers and trinkets, but this toothbrush was a sweeping gesture that proves Mr. Case really knows me. You see, I am somewhat obsessed with dental hygiene. When it is time for a new toothbrush I peruse the aisle for a good 20 minutes and usually leave feeling downright giddy over my new purchase. In this case, a dentist had sent someone to his job to advertise their services and everyone got to pick a new brush.
Mine is pink.
That, to me, is true love.
