Everyday Romance - Romantic Story: The Balloons
"My wife had lost a friend in a car accident a few months
back and had been depressed ever since. I didn't know what
to do to cheer her up. I'm not much of a romantic guy but
I'm lucky to have a friend who is. My friend suggested
something easy that even a clueless guy like me could pull
off: I took small pieces of paper and wrote stuff on them
like, 'Massage', 'Dinner @ La Caille', 'Breakfast in bed',
and other stuff my wife likes. Then I put each piece of
paper into a balloon, and filled the balloons with helium.
I left work early that day and put the balloons together
into a colourful bouquet and surprised my wife when she
came in the door from work. She loved it. Every day she
would pop a balloon to get the surprise inside. I forgot
that helium doesn't last forever and some of the balloons
started looking sort of shrunken after a couple of days
but we had a good laugh about it (and she had fun trying
to pop the 'shrunken heads', as she called them)."
