How do men love?
Simple answer: they don't.
Women's answer: not the way you want them to.
Manly answer: by doing.
Realistic answer: D) all of the above.
I know how it was done. It was done out of love. Aw.
My wife and I got into it a bit this week. She is a vegetarian who had backslided recently and then vowed she would never eat meat again. And so, at a start of the week Monday night supper, she eschewed much of the apple-bleu cheese-candied pecan spinach salad I had made her in favor of a desire to eat some of the tuna pasta salad I had made for the rest of us. I tried to hold her to her vow; she didn't see what the big deal was. I suggested that had I known she was back to eating flesh, I might have cooked a different meal. Trouble, hurt feelings, much ado about nothing ensued.
Men show love by doing. That's not a novel idea, and it certainly didn't originate with me or her. But I think it's pretty true. And after this week, it feels very true. I saw supreme acts of love from men this week (I'm not including me--that would be a tough sell) and, you can mock sentimentality all you like, they were a beautiful thing to see. And no flaming ship sent out into the harbor was even necessary.
