I Love You Emails

Thursday, February 14, 2013

My daughter and I email each other a lot.

She lives in a nearby town so we often email our goodnights.

We give a capsule message about our activites of the day.

Then we end the emails with "I love you."

Somewhere along the line the "I love you" message endings became a battle of wits.

She tried to outdo me in describing her love.

At first she merely said, "I love you."

I sent her hugs and kisses.

Then she said, "I love you truly."

I countered by saying "I love you five times."

The next night she replied, "I love you fourteen times."

I said I loved her 1,647,790 times.

She answered, "I love you 1,647,791 times."

Before Valentine's Day, I wrote, "I wish you 14 valentines."

She answered, "I love you about 55 valentines.

"I love you 76 valentines," I answered.

Then she emailed, "I love you better than banana pudding."

I told her I loved her more more than fried potatoes with onions and bacon.

"I love you more than ice cream, stuffed peppers and white gravy on a biscuit," she wrote.

I emailed that I loved her more than "from scratch" Red Velvet cake like granny used to make.

"I love you more than granny's dumplings," she said..

I told her I loved her as much as peanut butter on wheat bread.

She responded that she loved me more than chocolate gravy.

"I love you more than Quaker Oats," I emailed.

"I love you better than fried catfish with hushpuppies."

"I love you more than barbecue ribs," I answered.

Switching from food, we emailed our love in other areas.

"In February, I love you 28 times, " I said.

"I love you 13 snowballs."

"I love you more than all the snowflakes you can count during a snowstorm."

"I love you more than the hundreds of times you've told me to buy you a present."

"I love you a bushel and a peck."

"I love you more than that little ruby-throated hummingbird buzzing around my feeder," she said.

"I love you more than the two baby doves that left their nest and slept in my bird feeder last night."

She answered, " I love you more than all the stars in the sky."

"I love you in daylight or dark," I wrote.

"I love you more than all the ladybugs in the world," she responded.

"I love you profusely."

"I love you profuselier," she said.

"I love you no matter what."

"I love you exceedingly."

"I love you abundantly."

"I love you beaucoups."

"I love you unconditionally," I said.

"I love you the most," she wrote.

"I love you more than a box of chocolates,."

I countered.

And that's a whole bunch.
