Wednesday Worthy

I’m making an apple pie today.  I know, I know! Cookies and now apple pie? With vanilla ice cream?

But it’s Wizard’s fault. He’s been whining for apple pie, and since today is our anniversary…what could I do? I have to make it. It’s a rule or something. Especially since we’ve been married soooo long. Wizard DESERVES apple pie!

And here’s an example of WHY Wizard deserves apple pie from our conversation at dinner last night:

Me, “You’re not getting me anything for our anniversary right? I’ll be mad if you do.”

Wizard rolled his eyes.  “Like I have had time to go shopping?”

That was true, but Wizard can be devious. “That’s not an answer. We agreed, no gifts. We’re going to to dinner and I don’t want anything else.”

He got this really mutinous look. “I can buy you something if I want to.”

I finally realized how absurd this conversation was and started to laugh.  “I think we’ve been married too long.”

He nodded while scarfing down the steak tacos I made for dinner.  “Probably.”

“You still better not buy me anything.”

He stopped talking to me, probably because I was annoying the shit out of him.  But like I said, we’ve been married a long time and I know exactly how to get back in his good graces.   So I said, “I’m making you an apple pie tomorrow.”

And just like that, I was once again the love of his life.  See? He deserves apple pie!

Okay so this is an old picture I had on my files that I bought from Shutterstock. I don’t even know if I’ve shown it to you all before. But here’s our Wednesday Worthy Candidate:


So do you think he’s worthy?

    You two are too cute :). Yes, Wizard deserves apple pie. Act shocked when he gives you a gift today too ;). I hope you guys have a really lovely time out for dinner.

    Our anniversary is this Saturday. No gifts here either. We go out for a nice dinner too. Speaking of which I better make reservations later today.

    He’s okay. I don’t like the hair. It looks like he’s trying too hard.

    Have a really special day:)!

    LOL, you guys are awesome. It’s easy to see why you’ve been married a long time. Happy Anniversary to you both! =o) (And you’re right, he deserves the pie – but not for putting up with you… for being the right man for you even after all these years.)

    This one’s not doing it for me this morning. But I suspect that’s me.

    LOL I love you two. Lawyer Guy does that. We agree NO GIFTS! I play by the rules. He doesn’t. Arghhhh. I always feel guilty so now I just get him something. Apple pie is good. Always. Try cinnamon ice cream on it. (You can get it at Cold Stone.)

    At first glance, I kinda liked this guy. Rough, ready. I could see him in a series I’ve got on the back burner. And then I realized where he was holding his handgun. And I splorted coffee out my nose. Uhm…now I’m wondering if he’s over-compensating for something? :roll:

    Have the best anniversary yet! Happy Hump Day!

    Viki, thanks! I don’t think he will get me a gift though. I really don’t want anything. We’re going to dinner tonight since I’ll be gone on Saturday and that’s fine with me. Wizard even made the reservations :-)

    Happy Early Anniversary to you!

    B.E., first I don’t think it’s you. I’ve had this guy on my files for a while…there’s something not quite there. Or he’s just trying too hard.

    Wizard will get his pie :-) He really does deserve it.

    Silver, don’t you hate that guilty feeling? But I’m playing by the rules so he’d better–unless the gift barks!

    LOL On the way he’s holding his gun! I see a lot of poses like that!

    Happy Anniversary! Have a great time tonight.

    I liked this guy until I read Silver’s comment. She ruined him for me cuz now I’m wondering the same thing!!!

    Happy Hump Day!

    Jen, if the gift barks, then it’s a couple’s gift. And now I’m imagining this commercial! :lol:

    You guys are too cute, but, it almost sounds like he wants to get you something, for the same reason you made him apple pie, because he’s put up with you for as long as you put up with him :) .

    He looks worthy, kind a reminds me of Linc to be honest, don’t know why but he does. And in some situations handguns are better than riffles, especially if its at close range. He works for me.

    Have fun, and don’t be mad if he gets you a gift, its a symbol of how much he tolerates (I mean loves) you :wink: .
