He cooked dinner, a pork Sweet & Sour Stir Fry.Â She thanked him and told him it was delicious.Â Â She also said, “You know, of course, that I adore you.”
“What?”Â He said all innocent and offended.Â “I go to all the trouble of cooking you this great meal, and you accuse me of being unhinged?”
She said, “Actually, honey, that thought hadn’t crossed my mind, but now that you mention it …”
“Hey!”Â He hollers.
She giggles fiendishly.
ONE HOUR LATER:
She stands beside him at his desk.Â “Are you ready for your ice cream now?”
“Why yes,” he says.Â “I think I am.”
“Okay,” she says, “But tonight I am going to make you pay for it in advance.”
“A kiss?” he asks.
“Yes,” she answers.
He nods , then tips his head sideways, offering his cheek.Â She kisses it, says, “I love you,” and is three steps away before it dawns on her what has just happened.Â “Hey!”Â She hollers.
He giggles fiendishly.
