With IP and IF (instant pot, intermittent fasting), I am cooking more and eating better, but before that I was more than happy to receive "ok" in place of emoticons. The ok being in response to my "take out? us biryani, kids Tacobl?" The rare times he took initiative and command of the dinner plan and himself texted, "getting dinner. don't cook", my heart could go dhak dhak dhak. Who says only the way to a man's heart is through his stomach! The woman's heart is an equal opportunity employer in this matter.
