I must have looked bummed in the office, because the guys were trying to suggest things my husband could do to cheer me up. Unfortunately, I poo-poohed the flowers, the chocolate, the romantic dinners, and everything else they brought up. Finally they asked me what things he did to make me feel loved. I thought for a minute, and replied, “He makes spreadsheets of our financial assets, with pie charts and stuff, and tirelessly explains them to me. And he taught me Unix.” Those are the things that let you know someone really cares.
Happy birthday Tim!
