well, i’m sure you’re all dying to know how mr. noir reacted to the valentine’s photos. i’m here to tell you he was positively gobsmacked! it was almost like having a whole new wife! goes to show you that no matter how long you’ve been married, there is always something new to learn about one’s spouse.
indeed, mr. noir wanted to rush right out and go shopping for hats for esme. esme did think she looked rather fetching in mr. noir’s hat……but still……hats? goes to show you again that no matter how long you’ve been married, you never know the inner workings of your spouse’s mind.
in fact, mr. noir being who he is (a man of few words) esme has worried off and on for years that either he or she will pass over the great divide, and esme will never have known what is really on his mind.
perhaps he’s been keeping a secret diary, but i rather think not….do we ever really know another living soul?
