My husband is a data machine. He remembers dates and times while I can’t even recall today’s date or what occurred yesterday. I’ve been sitting with this data machine in the University of Florida’s stadium, affectionately known as The Swamp, for years.

You have to picture my husband, sitting in the seats we inherited from his father, seats he’s enjoyed since he was six years old. That’s a half a century. He’s grown up surrounded by die-hard Gator fans. Yet, he can gather all their attention by pointing to the field and declaring, “I remember in 1966 when Steve Spurrier …”

Me? I have to ask him who the Gators played last week and if they won—even if I attended the game.

The data machine doesn’t sound very romantic, does he?

But he also has a romantic side, and he woos me with it when he says, “I wouldn’t trade walking into the room on July 11, 1987, for all the money in the world.”

I wouldn’t have remembered the year short of his repeating it often, but I do remember what happened on that date. My data machine walked into a room and pretended to be my date because some deviant was hitting on me. I left the party with the data machine and never looked back, and every anniversary of our first date, he romances me off my feet with his declaration.

He woos me on our wedding anniversary as well, but shh … don’t tell him. We married on his birthday so that I’ll never forget the date.

Try to make everyday things special--- sort of Valentines Day every day! Don't for get to hug your hubby at least twice a day and don't save those kisses but don't make them just a habit either! paulams49 (AT)sbcglobal(DOT)net
