Special Day

ADMINISTRIVIA: Well, the good news is my blog has gotten popular enough that it's come to the attention of the spamming community. The bad news is this means I've had to add "word verification" to any comment(s) you want to leave, to prove you're a human and not a spambot. I apologize for the inconvenience, but I was beginning to spend too much time deleting all the spam, and it was only getting worse.

Meanwhile, here in the States it's Groundhog Day. Let's hear it for Punxsutawney Phil!



Over breakfast one morning, Sally says to Steve, "I bet you don't know what day this is."

To Steve's credit, he looked like a deer caught in headlights only a moment before he indignantly exclaimed, "Of course I do," and he left for work, quickly.

That morning, a florist's van pulled up to their house and a dozen long-stemmed roses were delivered.

Shortly after lunch, another delivery brought a box of expensive chocolates and flavored mints.

In mid-afternoon, a third delivery van pulls up and drops off the expensive designer dress Sally had had her eye on, from her favorite boutique.

Just before her husband arrived home, she received a phone call, explaining that their dinner reservations for Chez Couteuse had been pushed to 7:15 p.m., regrettably. Sally was, however, surprised and thrilled, for she had always wanted to eat there.

Later that night, in the car on the way home after dinner, Sally sighed and said, "Steve, this is the *best* Groundhog's Day I've EVER had!"

To Steve's credit, the car only ran off the road a little bit.
