Monsieur, on the other hand, is very kind. He will be spending his Valentine's afternoon singing at the Care Home where his 93 year old mother lives. Singing with the elderly is one of Monsieur's retirement activities. My dad's last year in Extended Care was brightened by Friday pub afternoon when Brian and Jim, his friend, came to sing. Tonight, he invited my mum to come to dinner with us because it is her first Valentine's as a widow.
Monsieur and I have not spent our entire lives together. We spent 9 years living apart when my daughter was young, 9 years cohabiting and have been married 9 years. My days have never been dull.
Monsieur Là-bas, je t'aime.
