Me: So….the box of chocolates I just found on the dresser, under the folded laundry. Is that an anniversary present?
Scott: (looks amused)
Me: Please tell me it’s an anniversary present.
Scott: (grins, enjoying this moment hugely)
Me: It was a Mother’s Day present, wasn’t it. Which I would have seen on Mother’s Day. If I had put my laundry away.
Scott: I wasn’t trying to trick you or anything.
Me: I know. You just figured I might, you know, actually put away the clothes you washed and dried and folded for me. A week ago. Gosh, I’m awesome.
Scott: Happy Mother’s Day!
