Love and Jeeps and Loving Jeeps...But Hating Crutches

I put a poem and photo in the local paper's Valentine's Day Love Notes section for my honey. I thought I'd share it with you.


It’s our second Valentine’s Day
As husband and wife.
For the most part I’ve been
Fairly happy with life.

I’ve been thinking a little
About how we’ll endure
Without one of us killing the other
And stashing the body under the crawl space door.

I know you’d love
If I made you more cookies
And you’d probably be happy
If we made more, uh, nookie.

I promise to honor these wishes my dear.
I’ve got one request that I’d like you to hear.
For cookies and nookie don’t come for free.
All good things that come, they come for a fee.

So, when jeeps happen to flip over
Could you try not to be in them?
Or at least while they flip
Could you keep your foot in ‘em?

‘Cause ‘in sickness and health’ is a great promise in theory
And offroading is fun but the injuries grow weary.
As long as crutches remain a thing in your past
I think we can make this marriage of ours last.

Ahh how sweet is that. I love it

junebee said...

Now that is the MOST romantic V-Day poem I have ever read! He's probably writing a similar one asking you not to stick stray hairs onto the shower wall...

Happy V-Day to both of you.

Crazy Lady said...

Phhht. You are so demanding of poor Zubeboy. How's he supposed to have any fun if he can't roll his jeep?

Chickie said...

There must be a job available for you with Hallmark!

Beautiful. Zube you are TRULY undiscovered talent. I hope Mike appreciates what he's got there...

Risiblegirl said...

Happy belated V-day Zube! Oh, that pic reminds me of all of the off-roading my ex-husband and I did in our jeep. Used to scare the living hell out of me. Sometimes I'd get out and walk. ;)

txsm said...

You got talent girl, no doubt! And, yeah....thought I was over the sickness....NOT!

Debi said...

awww how freakin sweet!

Lin said...

Wonderful! I mean it's a fab poem. Kind of Ogden Nash(ie),, you know like

Reflections on Ice-Breaking
by Ogden Nash

Is Dandy
But liquor
Is quicker.

What a perfect Valentine's Day present.

Zube Girl said...

Thanks all for appreciating my poem skilz! For the record, Zube Boy LOVED it and so did all the guys at his work. They cut it out and posted it on the bulletin board. AND teased him mercilessly all day, which was the point of the whole thing. :-)
