A recent conversation between Sean and I:
Sean: “Send me an email about what you want for Valentine’s Day”
Melissa: “I told you what I wanted. I told you I wanted bubble bath after you told me you wanted ‘Stompin’ Tom’s Greatest Hits’.”
Sean: “I know, and I can get you something nice on my own, but you mentioned something specific, so if you email exactly what you want to me, I won’t forget.”
Melissa: “I suppose. I did email myself after you told me you wanted that CD. I didn’t want to forget either.”
I can’t decide if this is thoughtfulness or the death of romance.
