There I was, sitting in my team meeting, talking about layoffs we may have to make… when in walked four men in white tuxedos. It’s Valentine’s Day, I work with a group of women– we all knew it was a V-Day surprise. The question was, “for who?” ”We’re looking for Music,” one of them said, handing me a vase with red roses in it and a bag of swag before blowing into a pitch pipe and leading his compatriots in a song. Yes, my friends, Mike surprised me this Valentine’s Day with a barbershop quartet singing telegram!
You could have knocked me over with a feather. Who does that?!? It was so sweet, but also so hilarious. I laughed and cried, as did the other four women in the room. The first song was a blur– I have no idea what they sang. The second one was “Let Me Call You Sweetheart,” which has been stuck in my head all day. They serenaded me and my colleagues and then were off to their next stop.
It takes a special man to arrange something like that, and I feel very lucky to have Mike as my Valentine. Things aren’t always smooth, but I never doubt I married a kind, talented man who is a great father and who loves me very much. Happy Valentine’s Day to him, and to you!
