I am not a holiday-celebrating type of person
though I do love the two boxes of chocolates and the potted pink kalanchoe plant
it would not bother me any if we did not celebrate any holidays
I don't like days when you are expected to do something just because its a holiday.
That is why I didn't write a Valentine's day post
when it seems every other blogger in Blogland did.
Last night I was watching Big Bang Theory
and a situation came up that made me appreciate the day.
Amy's gift to Sheldon was to stay in, order pizza
and watch one of his "Star Trek Wars movies"
Because she was his girlfriend and she wanted to give him
the gift that would please him the most.
Sheldon's gift to Amy was to give her a copy of his
personnel record of the university where he works
and tell her to look at the
"person to contact in case of emergency" field
where he had entered her name.
They were both thrilled beyond words
and such simplicity
made a little bit of gushy mushy inside me smile.
