With Mr. Bernie its hard to tell when he is paying attention or not. I’m sure this doesn’t happen to anyone else who is married. I’m sure I’m the only one. *wry smile* For example I might tell him something semi important about Jenny. For example, Jenny going to get her kidney functions checked or something. (She has had two transplants) Then when he talks to Jenny on the phone later, he acts as if he has no clue that I told him. Perhaps I might mention something his sister or his mom told me. Then when he talks to them he acts as if its news to him. Like I keep him in the dark about things. Believe me, I do tell him stuff. Sometimes I don’t know why I bother.
That being said. Imagine my surprise when he whipped up some colored pancakes for me last weekend! I had posted on my Facebook page a really neat article about rainbow pancakes. He rarely reads my Facebook, so I was sure to email the article to him as well. Again, that is a crap shoot as to if he will read it. So finally, I pulled it up on my computer and showed it to him. Ohhhing and Ahhhhing about how cool those were. He just grunted at me. I assumed that the grunt meant he was just appeasing my ass and not really paying attention. He did pay attention!! He did!! I was working on some cards and he was cooking us dinner. I was shocked when I saw these pancakes!! I never brought up the article on the rainbow pancakes after showing it to him. Yet, on his own, he wanted to surprise me. He knows my favorite color is pink, hence the pink pancakes. He said he made the blue for him.
Some women think a man has to tell you he loves you 40 times a day. Some women think that jewelry shows love. Some women think that an unlimited shopping spree with the credit card is love. For me, these pancakes show me that I’m more loved than any of those things combined. Those things are nice, but they don’t beat pink pancakes!
