Valentine’s Day Memory

It’s almost Valentine’s Day so of course I remember that first Valentine’s Day with my boyfriend.  It was so long ago that I actually cared if I got a gift.

He must have had something in mind because he went to Victoria’s Secret and purchased a ridiculous bra and underwear set.  By ridiculous I mean skimpy.  And expensive.  Lo, I’ve never spent money on my undergarments.  I’d rather buy a raincoat but my boyfriend wanted to impress me or seduce me.

Now I had always wanted padded hangers.  Padded hangers were expensive. Instead of getting a store credit I decided to trade the underwear for the hangers.  It never occurred to me he would find out.

You know how the story ended.
