What if I had offered to cook for them that night instead? A romantic dinner made by their loving only daughter. That’s an anniversary present, if I’ve ever heard it. Maybe they would have taken me up on it. I even would have set a fancy table for them, and put in my earbuds for the rest of the night and pretended nothing else would happen in their room that night.
I would cook for them and then hide quietly in my room every single night of my life if they would just walk in that door right now.
