My cousin and his wife left on Tuesday. Given our exhaustion, I decided to commit a simple act of love for you that day: I let you pick a show for us to watch together while we relaxed on the couch. You chose “Frasier,” which we’re currently working our way through. While it was playing, I gave you a little neck massage.
Since you love massages so much and I still don’t love giving them, I decided to buy you a gift card for a professional massage. I picked one in our price range—a 15-minute neck, shoulder, and upper-back massage. When I gave you the gift card, I braced myself because I knew you’d jump into my arms once you realized what it was. You did.
