A Valentine Story

Recommended Posts

A certain man loved his wife very much. He wanted this Valentine's day to be special, So he had ordered a bottle of her favorite liquor imported from France and it had arrived in time for the occasion. On his way home, he stopped at the local florist. He had planned to have a bouquet made with her favorite flower, white anemones. But to his dismay, he found that the florist had sold all her flowers and had only a few sterns of feathery ferns left for decoration.

In a moment of inspiration, he had the answer. He asked the florist to make a bouquet using the flask of liquor instead of flowers and what she produced was magnificent well beyond his expectations. He added a card, and proceeded home. When he arrived, his wife was beautiful in her most elegant gown, and it was apparent that she had spent much of the day preparing a romantic candlelight dinner for the two of them. He presented her with his gift, and she opened the card to read, "Absinthe makes the heart grow fonder." With a tear in her eye, she whispered to him lovingly, "Yes, and with fronds like these, who needs anemones."

Bennett Cerf is rolling over in his grave--but he's laughing!!

(For those too young to have seen/heard Bennett Cerf, here's a one-sentence dsscription from a bio that describes what I refer to: "An extroverted punster and raconteur who published some of the twentieth century's most celebrated writers, Cerf was a celebrity in his own right, editing anthologies, writing a syndicated newspaper column, and serving as a panelist on the television show What's My Line?" (my emphasis).)
