Every year on April 1st, I’m reminded of the first time the husband (then boyfriend) said I love you.
He chose to do so on April 1st.
On April Fool’s Day.
At the time I was fresh out of high school (i.e. young and naive) and went home that day wondering, “Is he playing a joke on me?”.
I called all my friends, told them of the story, and asked if they thought he was serious or if it was all one big April Fool’s joke.
The husband laughs to this day that I could have thought it was a joke.
But come on, seriously….
Don’t choose April Fool’s Day to say I love you for the first time!
