Q: Dad, what is the best Valentine's Day gift you ever gave mom?
A: Let's see, I could be sweet and say you. I could be funny and say me. Or, I could be truthful and say one of my many flaws is that gift giving is not a strength. I'm not a cash-in-a-card guy, but I'm no diamond-necklace type either. Happy Valentine's Day. I love you.
