“Eric, the tulips are beautiful, but we are on a budget.”

“But I like to bring you flowers.  I want you to know I love you.”

“I do know you love me.  I would feel even more loved if I wasn’t stressed about the budget.  Maybe just cut back on the flowers?’

“You are not like other women, you know…”

“I’m sorry, honey.  I know.  But I love you.”

“Hrmph.”

Soooooo, instead of letting this hurt his feelings, what does my husband do?   This is what I saw when I came home from work that day.

I know, you don’t even have to tell me.

I don’t deserve him.

But I sure plan to keep him!

    There was an opening because Pamela said “cut back on”
    That very clearly means, Dont eliminate… just reduce..
