Daily Prompt: Pick Me Up
What is the one word or phrase that immediately cheers you up when you hear it?
The words that used to cheer me up are no longer there.
The person who said them is gone, so the words are there no more.
A look at my face spurred my husband R to outrageous remarks. It would put him in immense good humor, if I showed any reaction. The more I was irritated, he enjoyed himself more.
I would walk in with his morning bed tea, and put it beside him on his bedside table. Yawning, he would sit up in bed, look at my face, smile and ask, “Do I love you?”
This was the daily question. The first time it did irritate me.
I would answer, “Don’t know.”
“You should be able to answer this question?”
“No, I don’t.”
Laughing and grabbing my hands, ( I would be trying to evade his hands) he would say,
“I do love you.”
