What Those V-Day Sweetheart Candies Should REALLY Say - Married with Children Edition

What Candy Sweethearts SHOULD Say - After MarriageWhat Candy Sweethearts SHOULD Say - After Marriage
It's that time of year, so I picked up a pack of those V-day Sweethearts, you know, the conversation heart candies that are supposed to represent the sweet nothings you would whisper in your lover's ear before bed, like: I LOVE U, B MINE, KISS ME… blah blah blah? Those phrases are more saccharine sweet than the candy, so I thought I'd make a list that resembles real pillow talk. These are the phrases that should be etched on those cute little hearts, after a few years of marriage.


Be warned: this list is not for newlyweds, so you can refrain from reading and telling me how blissful your marriage is. Give it a few years. Ahem- I mean, I'm happy for you. Sorry, but resentment and boredom take time to cure, like a salami.
