(Clearly a picture of happiness. All should aspire to coupledom as satisfying as ours.)

Scene: Justin and I are sitting on the couch, watching lovey commercials about Valentine's Day. Justin turns to me with a romantic gleam in his eye.

Justin: So, do you want me to get you $50 flowers for Valentine's, or would you just rather have a gift card to go shopping with?

Jacqueline: Hmm. (Imagining the possibilities) Probably just the gift card.

Justin: I was going to have flowers sent to you but...

Jacqueline: Wait... were you planning on getting me flowers AND a present?

Justin: *pause* ... yes.

Jacqueline: So make that $100 gift card then. To Nordstrom.

Justin: Okay.


Aren't we so romantic? Don't you just hate lovey dovey couples like that? Let me spell out what just happened; I NEGOTIATED my Valentine's Day present with Justin.

Moral of the story: We suck at being a couple. I like shopping.
