If You Give a Man a Ballon


For some reason this week has been a little rough for me.  Maybe it's because the weather here the past couple of days has been gloomy or maybe it's because I'm running low on Nutella. No one knows.

Anyways, because of this, the boyfriend has been extra sweet and has been dropping off flowers at my apartment before he goes to work every morning.  These little, kind acts have gotten me thinking.  One, I am blessed with a man that's not afraid to pick flowers from his yard in the early morning.  Two, yard flowers don't last as long as I wish they would. Three, what in the world do I get him when he's had a bad day?

I've actually thought about this before.  On a previous occasion when he brought me flowers after a long day I said, "So, what do I get you when you've had it rough? A ballon?"  He smiled and gave a hearty laugh and said, "You're funny."

However, I was serious about the balloon idea.  He doesn't need to know that, though.

So, in order to avoid an embarrassing helium fiasco, here are some things I came up with to brighten your guy's day.

  • a milkshake from the local diner
  • a hand written card reminding him how awesome he is
  • a batch of cookies or his favorite dessert
  • an adventure to the $1.50 movie theater
  • not a balloon
  • an offer to wash his dishes or to do some other chore he dislikes
  • takeout from his favorite restaurant

Mostly, I thought of food related things.  My mom has always said that the way to a man's heart is through his stomach.

What special surprises do you get your guy or gal when he or she has had a rough day? I'd love to know!

Love, Alli
