“I don’t like giving presents. I never know what to get anyone.”

“I’m happy with whatever you get me.”

He stared daggers at the computer.

“You gave me dish towels one year. I loved them!” She could feel the relief in his demeanor. She didn’t want big and fancy love.

Later, he said, “I know something you don’t know,” with a smirk on his face.

“Hey! I thought I wasn’t allowed to say that about gifts.”

Very seriously, he said, “You’re not.” Then, he smiled and resumed interest in his online game.

The moment was priceless.
