Love in the Soup Aisle

Here's the scene:

An old woman, probably in her 80s, pushing her cart slowly down a supermarket aisle. Coming towards her is her husband, carrying two boxes of cookies. He looks at her, smiles broadly, and says happily:

"Look, those cookies you like are on sale!"

That, to me, is love. This man was so happy that he could do something, however small, for his wife.

I want to be just like that when I'm in my 80s. And I know Husband is just the kind of man who would look out for those cookies I like.

Oh wow. That's pretty adorable.

How did she react?

In my head, she smiled real big and said, "Oh nice! And look what *I* found for you..." while holding up a bottle of Maker's Mark.

Which is how this story will unravel when Bubba and I are in our 80s.
