Buying a new pair of pajamas and sharing it with your sweetheart. She
wears the shirt and he wears the bottom. Great for long distance
relationships too.

ROMANCE IS AS EASY AS PIE
by Michael Webb

Fall is such a romantic season. Strolls under the harvest moon.
Dunking for apples. Watching the leaves turn to glorious shades of
copper, burgundy and flaming tangerine. But what I look forward to
most each fall is – pumpkin pie.

I heard a while back that the most exciting fragrance for men was not
some expensive perfume, but the smell of pumpkin pie. I agree.

Of course I do look forward to eating the pie, but the whole ritual of
making it can be nearly as rewarding (I did say “nearly”). First, you
have to get yourself a pumpkin or two. Pumpkin out of the can just
won’t cut it. Then you carve it. No, not with some stupid monster
face, but with hearts cut out all around or some other romantic
design.

Then work with your sweetheart to make the pie together. I usually
mix all the goop while my wife makes the crust. She makes the best
crust in the whole world. Make some fresh hot chocolate while the pie
is baking and maybe whip up a batch of fresh whipped cream.

When the pie is done, take it out of the oven to cool (and to fill the
air with its aroma). Meanwhile, place a tall candle inside the
pumpkin. Then turn off all the lights so the candle will reflect the
cut out hearts all over the room while you devour the pie with your
best friend.
