Expressing my true L-O-V-E


Men, somewhere in the pages of time it is written that men fall easy prey to a good woman’s charm. Being captured by a good woman is so much better than being held captive by a bad one. ...

’Course, then again, it seems to me some wise sage said: “All women are angels. The good ones have wings and bless a man’s life. ...Only an idiot would so mistreat a woman that she has to resort to using a broom to get around.” Or something like that.

So, out of this insightful wisdom of the female species, some guy realized he had erred with an otherwise good woman and hoped to right his wrongs to salvage his possessed life. (No man wants to be married to a witch.) Thus Valentine’s Day was invented to provide love’s interest redemption -- or at least to hope for one day of marital bliss in the midst of unrelenting purgatory. So, hopefully, you went out of your comfort zone to provide the woman in your life an expression of L-O-V-E.

Here at La Grimm Ranchero Affection, Devotion, Mushiness, and Coot Bug Incubation, we are hiding brooms as I type this. The missus is one of those tender-hearted, sentimental, feelings-on-her-sleeve, thin-skinned types. ...Of course, she married me to toughen up or hope our whole marriage grants her sainthood....

As Feb. 14 arrived, I pulled out all stops to show her my devotion to her. Men, if you’re like me, you need your woman! ...It is mandatory that we men show her and tell her these very facts. I thought I’d done this, this whole last year. ...Wow, was I wrong!

The missus gave me the what-for! ...All this time I’d missed it! ...

Here’s what I’ve learned: ...

Stuffing your face with what she cooks is not the same as telling her how good it is or how much it’s appreciated.

Letting her pick up your dirty clothes and wash them is not viewed by her as an honor or a privilege.

Hogging the TV is not companionship.

Giving her a big heart-shaped box of chocolate that she can’t eat is not necessarily a good thing.

If she uses a 12-inch iron skillet, she’s developed the muscles for a right hook that should make you proud as you pick yourself up off the floor.

Men, I urge us all to tell and show the woman in your life how much you love her in a way that keeps her sweet. Then you won’t have to hide the broom.

Happy Valentine’s Day to Debie Grimm, who lets me write this off-the-wall stuff. God has been so good to allow you in my life. Nobody doubts you deserve sainthood!

With all my love,

Your devoted crazy husband.
