FIVE DAYS & FIVE WAYS TO GET READY FOR VALENTINE’S. (Day 2)
Woo. I received the following text message this weekend:
[Names changed to protect the adorable] “Hi Tamara…I asked Mary on a date, and the only place she wanted to go was The Velvet Note. Coming to the 9:30 show. Please make me look good (I know you will). See you soon! “
Now John and Mary have been married for over 20 years, so asking her on a date and being genuinely anxious about the outcome is…well…unusual. And beautiful. You see, John (fierce, hot shot lawyer by day) is wooing his wife, as if she’s not a sure thing. He’s not taking her for granted. And Mary is flirty and giggly and feels like she is in love, which she is. And it’s all happening in everyday life. Go ahead and try it. Ask her if you can bring her lunch today…right in the middle of her speech preparation. Tell her you’d enjoy doing that for her. You can start wooing right now. Who? You.
