It's the Thought That Counts

She said she wanted tulips for Valentines Day; he was sleepy and thought she said turnips. So Allan Harris of Hartford, Kentucky, went above and beyond the call of duty and made sure his wife Nina got a whole bucket of turnips as a token of his love, presented in a special Valentine bucket. Nina was confused at first, but appreciated Allan's efforts. She later received tulips as well, plus a balloon. (via Metafilter
