The Sweetest Thing

A friend and coworker of Manly Man asked my advise tonight. He wants to purchase a gift for a woman he admires who has recently been promoted. She is now a master trainer at the gym he works out in.

I suggested he go to one of those engraving places and get her a little plaque or statue with something heart felt engraved on it. No overtly romantic gestures and no expectations. Just be a nice guy.

He said Manly Man had suggested a hand gun, bfff. Now, let me tell you a little about Manly Man. He gives flowers ,diamonds, sapphires, chainsaws, tillers, greenhouses, and shotguns. He will move a greenhouse where ever I want it. He makes excellent monkeys. He is the best gift giver ever. He is one of the best cooks I know. That's right, I said it. He can cook as good as I can. You should see the necklace I received for mothers' day this year. Gorgeous. My man has it all figured out. I won't even talk about the really good stuff.

I am one lucky woman.

  4. I love my Cheesehead to death too. Some men are wonderful and some should never get married. I'm glad we picked some keepers (even if they like to play a dirty trick now and then).

    We stopped exchanging gifts after we moved to Rhinelander, but he's thoughtful and helpful. I guess it's easy for us to forgive and forget when our men are so sweet, isn't it?

  5. Cinj, I agree and good man is a hard to find. I am very thankful. As far as forgiving and forgetting, no way, I am getting even.

  6. The best part of the whole story (imo) is "he cooks". The other stuff is nice, but a man who cooks! Damn, that's sexy!

  7. Gotta love a partner who knows when it's time to give diamonds and when it's time to give a chainsaw! --Curmudgeon

  10. I have a son-in-law who cooks. I can see why. I would rather my daughter be the disher-washer than the cook. He even plans the menus and writes the grocery list. She's got it made in the shade.
