Setting the Bar

I asked her what I should get her for Valentine's Day. "Cannoli" was the answer. I made cannoli.* She said, with utter sincerity and moist eyes,** it was the most romantic thing anyone has ever done for her on Valentine's Day.

Mine did not look this good.

I am in trouble; I've set the bar too high. What in the wide world of sports am I going to do next year?

*With the invaluable help of my daughter. Sarah loaned out her kitchen, made the dough when a work obligation kept me late, offered needed advice and shoved the filling into the cannoli.

** if you are a Doubting Thomas then you clearly do not grasp how good cannoli can be. You have my pity.
