The bane of every man's existence is getting close. No, not the start of the new season of American Idol, I'm talking about Valentine's Day (cue scary/dramatic music). That one day of the year where the pressure is on for us to deliver a gift (or gifts) that reflects our love and devotion to you. To you it sounds like a simple task, but remember we're men, and we're not that bright. Here's your chance to make it easy on us and just tell us what you want.

Fortunately, I'm married to a wonderful woman who doesn't put a ton of stock into this "holiday" (yes, those are sarcastic quotation marks). She would prefer that I do something nice for her or buy her a gift because I want to, not because some random date on the calendar says I should. The problem there of course is that I'm not really good at doing that (see "being a man"). It's not that I don't want to, I just don't think about it as often as I should (again, see "being a man").

I'm putting the power in your hands ladies (which is where it is most of the time anyway). By telling us what you want, you (in theory) will get what you want and we'll be safe until your birthday or our anniversary rolls around. It's win-win for everybody!
