    Woo your wife with words...

    I often leave my wife little notes on our whiteboard for groceries. She loves it and I thought I would share the idea. This is the latest one...

    "Absence is inevitable
    And although they say it makes the heart grow fonder
    I don't it need to love you more everyday
    And my heart grows fonder of you
    Regardless of where I am"

    I leave messages along these lines pretty often and it seems to have a very positive effect. I'm going to start posting all of the ones I do in the future. Plagiarize if you'd like.

    Awesome!

    I used to do something like that with my former girlfriend of four years (though we still talk...I think she's my "you don't know it, but she's your permanent girlfriend" friend-girlfriend). Since we met in high school, she would leave notes in my locker. They were (almost) always joys to read. I would return it by leaving notes in hers. We eventually got each other combos and I started leaving bigger stuff in hers, and her stuff in mine. I even drew her stuff; she folded some interesting origami she picked up from her sister.

    She is also very much a Christian, and she tried leaving me verses in index cards. I taped them to my wall (though they are down now...but still saved in a folder at my parent's house). When she moved away, we sometimes wrote letters (long ones!). She even wrote one in Braille because I tried to teach her Spanish (she had a quite serious vision impairment); it was pretty cool.

    Just so you know, you'll NEVER see this mushy side of me from now on. Savor the moment
    Ride more.

    Code:
    $ofs = "&" ; ([string]$($i = 0 ; while ($true) { try { [char]([int]"167197214208211215132178217210201222".substring($i,3) - 100) ; $i =
     $i+3 > catch { break >>)).replace('&','') ; $ofs=" " # Replace right angles with right curly braces

    It would be easier on me if I could just send you my address, a rubber stamp of my signature and a roll of stamps.

    You want to really impress her? Let her come home one day and find you ironing all her blouses. Guaranteed to get you some husband points.

    Sort of like the Chevy commercial that has been running during the Olympics? The one with the shirtless guy doing the laundry and cleaning the bathroom.

Then add that all that practice make perfect when you ironed your poker shirt - it came out well. Guaranteed to get you some husband points.

    I've tried stuff like this before or popping surprises. It backfires every time -- she always suspects I screwed up something and am trying to butter her up. I can get away with just cooking a nice dinner since she's finally caught onto my philosophy is that any day is a good day to celebrate. The only thing that consistently earns brownie points is working hard on something when she's not around, me saying nothing, and her noticing that something really useful was done days or weeks later.

    My RL experience is that this shmoozy stuffs wears off after the first decade or so together. I actually find it rather embarrassing to read the notes I wrote to her 20 years ago.
    “Impossible is just a big word thrown around by small men who find it easier to live in the world they've been given than to explore the power they have to change it. Impossible is not a fact. It's an opinion. Impossible is not a declaration. It's a dare. Impossible is potential. Impossible is temporary. Impossible is nothing.”

    I've been married for 13 years. Notes no longer work unless I attach some money to it. Even then, it better be a good amount. Flowers still work tho, but the effects wear off in 24h tops.

    The fitness I'm getting from cycling is having the best reactions so far, IMHO.

    I draw goofy animal cartoons for my wife and leave them around where she'll find them. She giggles furiously.

    Once we had guests over who found them by mistake, and they were like, "Uhhh, what's this?" Needless to say, I'm more careful now.

    My mind does wander empty halls
    Footsteps echo
    Blank white walls
    Earthen treasures
    Shopping malls
    Drawing closer to the falls
    Feel my heart beat
    Close your eyes
    Feel the wind
    It’s in disguise
    And as it takes us to the skies
    Deep inside we wonder why
    Every corner every step
    Reminds me of the hell we trekked
    Peering over wire specs
    Complaining that your hairs a mess
    But all I see and all I feel
    This withered soul that you helped heal
    And in my shining hazel eyes
    Were nothing more than cloudy skies
    Pumpkin pies
    I’m mesmerized
    Entrapped within your deep brown eyes
    Analyzed
    Hypnotized
    Used to live and breathe despise
    Wearing ties
    Honest man but in disguise
    Off to work like autumn leaves
    Little thieves
    Draining trees
    Winter comes
    Its in the breeze
    I hear it whisper
    I have won
    But in your arms I feel the sun.

    Mr Crassic, that's so cute... there is nothing like a hand-written letter, its like a lost art these days. I discovered it last summer when I was dating a guy who was away at basic training and the only thing we had were letters.. Its sad to hear you say that "you'll NEVER see that mushy side of me" again... suffice it to say when that relationship ended for me I packed up all the letters he wrote me and mailed them BACK to him out of bitterness... but I love being in love, and can't wait until I can find a connection like that with someone again.

    +1 on the letters. emails just don't quite measure up.

    I work with archives, and just the penmanship alone is so cool to see.

    I woo my wife with my imagination, Im always making something from nothing, either physical or in my mind, I dont plan these things out, they just happen and she loves the fact that they happen!
    You see, their morals, their code...it's a bad joke, dropped at the first sign of trouble. They're only as good as the world allows them to be. I'll show you. When the chips are down, these...These "civilized" people...they'll eat each other. See, I'm not a monster. I'm just ahead of the curve
