When Ian woke me up to say "Happy Valentines" before leaving for his class at 7:30 all I could mumble was a puzzled, "It's not Valentines." Apparently he didn't hear me.
"Happy Valentines Day!" said his voice from the intercom as he waited to be buzzed up coming home from class. I told him again that it wasn't, and hit the buzzer. A moment later he walks in the door with a rose, some champagne, chocolate milk (it's my favorite treat), mushrooms, and a confused grin. In the scope of mistakes, not bad at all and pretty funny. He tells me that he told all the kids at school it was Valentines Day and just got a bunch of blank stares. Mystery solved there!
As I am laughing with him and cutting up some vegetables to make pizzas he turns to me and says, "Oh, that will be a dollar off my tab for the mushrooms." The romance of getting charged for mushrooms on Valentines! Henceforth, the 13th of February will be known as Ian's Valentines where he confuses what day is, brings a couple gifts, and charges you for vegetables.
