A dash of Pepper…

…with a splash of Mint

For my weirdo.

Posted by Pepper on August 24, 2011

Every time there is a big meeting in Mint’s office, they lay out a spread of assorted mini brownies and other such bite sized goodies for the employees. And each time Mint bites into the little brownies and then saves the remaining bite sized bit for me. He puts away the half eaten pieces of little assorted cakes in his lunch box to bring home to me. I find it incredibly sweet.

A lot of times he comes home and says “I got something for you baby”, and then hands me his lunch box. I open it to find a variety of tiny, half eaten pieces of cake lying in there. Sometimes the pieces are so tiny, its laughable. Yet, he thinks of saving those bites for me. It makes me melt. They’re a reminder of his thoughtfulness and the fact that he wants to share all his delights with me.

I happened to mention this to a friend I was chatting with, and she said, ‘What? He smuggles the tiny, half eaten brownies from his office in his lunch box and brings them home to you? Haha, that’s weird”

Weird? Perhaps it is. It instantly reminded me of this picture I had seen.

So this one is dedicated to my favourite weirdo.

  1. Aww. Total sweetness. The quote is true in a weird sort of way.. πŸ˜‰

    About smuggling goodies – H does it all the time, but with fruits! They have a assorted fruit basket for employees in their company and he knows I am a passionate fruit lover πŸ™‚

    Lunch boxes serve so many unsaid purposes..and I love this one best!

    Kala tika on you two wierdos.

    LOVE it πŸ˜€

    And the quote rings true for me too – love it love it love it πŸ™‚

    You guys are so sweet (hahah literally!)

    If bringing half eaten muffins and cakes from office is considered weird then count me in. I do it too. G works from home most of the time while I go to work everyday. Whenever there is goodies available at work, I bring it for the kids and him.

      I certainly don’t consider it weird.. But then, apparently some people do. More than the idea of bringing the stuff back home, my friend thought the ‘half eaten’ part was weird. I should tell her how many people consider that to be normal πŸ™‚

  4. WHAT? No, its not weird!! That is perfectly normal …. and sweeet! G does it all the time too! πŸ™‚

    Find love in small things, people! πŸ˜›

    I’ve seen this quote before, and completely agree with it…like I always have.

    About Mint?? He’s a precious gem. Hold onto him. I am yet to comment on your in-laws post, but hear this. For this guy, if you have to tolerate difficult parents because that’s part of the package…I’d say u do it gladly with no cribbing. He’s worth it.

    • Pepper said

      He is a precious gem. And totally worth the difficult parents and a lot more. I don’t know how obvious it is, but I am quite crazy about that guy πŸ˜€ Even though he really pisses me off sometimes.

  10. Awwwwww that’s so sweet of him. I’d melt if my hubby ever did that to me. Sadly, he very rarely thinks of it. 😦 I am the one who carries little bite-sized pieces of all the goodies I get in my office, and take them back to him. I want him to share everything that I do and like and love.
    I see it as plain love and romance and sweet, and not weird at all.

    We all have our little quirks.Normal and weird is so subjective. I find my MIL weird and my hubby finds his MIL weird πŸ˜€

    Mint is a sweetheart really. You should write about the ‘cutest’ things that you do for him πŸ™‚ He is gaining more brownie points on your blog πŸ˜€

    • Pepper said

      I should actually! It will give me a chance to talk about how I give him coffee in hand, or how I lotion his feet because he is too lazy to do it and other stuff like that. But then, shouldn’t he be talking about all that?

  40. Bikram said

    wowo.. really .. thats not weird thats ROMANTIC…

    he is the MAN …

  41. […] class to take me shopping. He would bring me the mini cakes they served them in their school there. Just the way he did earlier.Β  He would seek my permission when he wanted to drink. He would bring me coffee and breakfast in […]

  42. […] Considering that we actually fight over food, it is strange that I find myself wincing when I have the opportunity to eat something interesting all by myself. I think of saving some for him. I picture him eating it. I imagine his reactions. Finishing it all up alone just doesn’t sound appealing. So I end up being more generous to him by saving him a good piece when he is not around. I suppose it is the same with him, which is why he brings me half eaten bite sized goodies from work. […]
