Valentines and Radio Show DJs



Friday morning i'm at home and i get a call from James:

James: Ah-chay, are you at home?
Me: Yes
James: Go downstairs and let some people in.
Me: Who?
James: Just go downstairs and let them in.
Me: I don't have any makeup on.
James: Just trust me.
So i go down in my fuzzy socks and crocs and see through the window four men - two of them in red tuxedos. I don't know that i had ever seen a red tuxedo before. My first thought - "is this a singing telegram??" But i let them in the apt complex and then notice the non-tux wearers had a microphone and the other a camera. They are from KLIN radio in Lincoln. They are holding a huge bouquet of red roses. They quickly explain to me that my husband submitted an entry of why i deserved an extra special Valentine's and we were one of four entries that were selected. His entry said something about us recently getting married and moving from AZ and that i had sacrificed a lot and hadn't found a job in Lincoln yet (and that i was bedridden and blind). They handed over the large bouquet, a smelly candle, a $100 giftcard to a spa, and a $40 gift certificate to a mexican restaurant!!! What a valentine's! Then the camera flash started going and the two DJs stepped in on either side of me.! Although this isn't how i would have wanted the whole encounter to go down, it was a great and unusual Valentine's Day.

Later you can take off your fuzzy socks off and put on your make up for that dinner and then celebrate one more day of valentine's day with James. Awesome, awesome!!!! You guys deserve that!!!

Wow! That's awesome. Thumbs up to James for creativity. Were they really expecting you to be bedridden and blind? Did they publish those pictures anywhere? Too bad you didn't get a video of the whole thing. Sounds like there's never a dull moment in the Janssen household.
