What do you say to someone who just told you: "I love you" ?
Do you simply say "I love you" back ? Yes, you could, but I mean someone just poured his or her heart out to you and all you can do is pull a copycat job ?
There has to be a better comeback. How about these.....
If you are insecure: "can I have that in writing ?"
If you are guilty: "are you sure ? 'cause I've been meaning to tell you about the car...."
...or if you are suspicious: "so what did you do to the car this time ?"
For those who like to live dangerously: " can't say I blame you "
..and if you have an absolute death-wish: "it's not like you can help it"
If you've waited too long: "Eureka !!!" (followed by a wild war-dance around the room)
If you're broke (and stupid!): "I hope this doesn't mean I have to get you a gift or something"
and finally, if you're my wife: well, then you just break down laughing hysterically....!
