Okay, for Valentine's day this year, it was Andy and Alishia's first Valentine's day together as a couple (and as marrieds), so they were going to do something special. The good thing about Andy and Allen being who they are is that they have this built-in need as brothers to compete. You know the song, "Anything you can do, I can do better?" That should be their theme song, although not in a bad way. More in a, "How can be more creative and crafty than my brother?" kind of way. Anyway, one day they were discussing their plans for their respective wives and somehow they got the idea that they should work together on something for both of us to surprise us. I was very curious when Allen told me, a few weeks before the big day, that he and Andy had an amazing secret plan for Alishia and me. He was very tight-lipped on the details (which is hard for him, since once he has planned a cool thing he's going to do for me he often wants to share it right away) and Andy was too. I was excited.
Finally, Valentine's day arrived, on a Tuesday, which is a day that Allen has off and I work. He told me to expect a present to arrive via UPS at school. Unfortunately, the UPS truck always comes at the end of the day, so I could not leave until it came, and we were on a tight schedule for the rest of the day. Thankfully, just as we were about to give up on it getting there in time, the truck rolled up with my present: a box of chocolate dipped strawberries from Shari's Berries (Allen had heard an ad for it on the radio). Yum!

You know you wanna see what the play was about now, don't you? Here's the short version: once upon a time in Ancient Greece (or maybe Rome) there were two brother gods. One was very strong and one was very clever. They were trying to win the hearts of two goddesses. They had to work together to overcome many obstacles (a la Hercules and his 12 labors), but eventually they won the hearts of the women they loved. The end.
I thought it was so creative and I loved how they had made everything themselves at nearly no cost. It was very fun to watch and I was very proud of my Adonis-like hubster. Now Alishia and I are going to have to try to outdo their amazing performance somehow...
