Today, on the Patio Boat, we present Romeo and the Rice Cooker: A Valentine's Day Love Story in Facebook Comments.
John Magee did not buy Monique flowers, candy, or even a card for Valentine's Day. I did, however, buy her a rice cooker because love means never having to say you're sorry (that you made gloppy rice.) Yesterday at 10:16am
Angela Makowski How sweet! (the rice cooker, not the gloppy rice) Yesterday at 10:19am
Terri Lee Marion SUCH a romantic! Yesterday at 10:21am
Raymond Brace You, sir, have a truly twisted mind (lmao). Yesterday at 10:30am
Terri Lee Marion Love means never having to say, "Make your OWN DAMN rice!" LOL Yesterday at 10:35am
Carissa Wilkins Are we surprised by John's logic??? Yesterday at 11:04am
John Magee The romance lies not in giving your wife what any woman might want. The romance lies in knowing what your wife really wants. Yesterday at 11:21am
Gary Alampi and that is fluffy rice. Yesterday at 11:24am
John Magee Exactly, Gary! Yesterday at 12:02pm
Carissa Wilkins Ok John - did Monique fall head over heels when presented with that "gift of love"? I stand for the crowd and say "let's hear it from Monique" Yesterday at 3:26pm
Steve Johnston Rice is kind of a flower isn't it? Yesterday at 5:19pm
John Magee Hah, Cari! You'd need to get her *on* Facebook, first. Until then she's unable to rebut my assertion of the sheer romance to be found in a rice cooker.
I did up the romance ante a bit this afternoon though, by taking her out ... to the neighbor's house to watch the Daytona 500. (Granted, this year it was more like watching four hours of pothole repair. Whatever. The point is that we went out on Valentine's Day, too. So, there!) Yesterday at 7:58pm
Carissa Wilkins :-) Yesterday at 9:38pm
Phil Gaven Well played, Grasshopper, well played. Yesterday at 10:25pm
Coda: We conclude our love story with this breaking update: I'm still waiting for my fluffy rice.
