My mom shared with me an experience she had recently. She was in her kitchen preparing a meal and opened one of her cupboard doors. A bag of Hershey kisses lay conspicuously among the dishes. She immediately realized that my dad had tried to hide them from her (they have a long history of purchasing sweets and hiding them from one another, they call them their "stashes"). So, as any loving spouse would do, she hid them in another cupboard and left a note for him. She made it into the shape of a kiss, taped a kiss wrapper to the back of it, and wrote a brief thank you note to my dad for leaving the kisses for her. That, in and of itself, would be a good story. What makes it great is that there's more.
The next day she happened to open the same cupboard where she had left the note the day before and, to her surprise, she found a note for her from my dad. She described it as scathing. It read "Taxation is okay. Confiscation is not." And then demanded that she return the kisses to him. She was concerned that dad was actually upset. When he got home later that day she thanked him for his note hoping that he wasn't. While she spoke a smile grew on his face until he was laughing. They both had a good laugh and mom put the kisses back for him. Now she's on the prowl for one of his other stashes. I can't say which as he might be reading this and I don't want to betray mom's confidence. Just be warned dad.
Let's make this week more fun. We all need more laughter in our lives, and especially in our marriages.
