I asked him to give me a wake-up call for my early morning final. He totally forgot, and I was crushed. I arrived late for my exam. The next day calla lilies were delivered to me at work. I had casually mentioned this was my favorite flower one time, and he remembered.
Postscript: I got an A in the class. We’ve been married nearly two years. And I still get calla lilies when he screws up.
