Guideline 86
86. You shall not buy your wife a muffler for Valentine's Day.

While I can think of two instances where a muffler would be appropriate...if your chick is a car buff or if your chick's ride is in desperate need of a new muffler, the average chick (and including the Practical Chick) does not want a muffler.

The Cop Magnet's reasoning was that since he bought me a box of truffles, a jacket, and a pair of gloves last month he already "paid" for Valentine's Day. I had to remind him that is not how the "pay it forward rule" works in our relationship. The "pay it forward rule" works so that I do not kill him when he does something completely insane (like when he bought a $190 car part....for a car that did not need the part...I didn't kill him - he merely received the silent treatment).

To add to this, while I was in the shower he came into the bathroom and said, "I measured it. It's a perfect fit." Hopefully he's talking about his casket...cause he just might need one.

    Gon asked me what I wanted and I said, "Nothing." He seemed disappointed and a bit fearful that this was a trick answer or test or something.

    It's not - I just don't want flowers, chocolate, cards or anything like that. I'd be simply overjoyed if he did the dishes for me tonight.

    Not to ruin your day, but if you knew the Pagan roots of Valentine's Day - you wouldn't want to celebrate it anymore. =O(

    well that's better than nothing at all or being left home alone because your husband decides to be macho and go into work anyway even though we're under a level 3 snow emergency because of a blizzard!!!!
    Now tell me who wants to go shopping at the local computer store when there is over 2 feet of snow on the roads and more coming? MEN!

    Don't worry..I know the roots and really didn't want anything (I didn't even ask for anything). I don't see much romance in celebrating a holiday that commemorates a hanging..

    But still...a muffler?
