Mrs. Yes makes it a point to be warm and inviting whenever her husband storms her beach. He is always welcomed with a kiss and a lei.
Field Marshal Gregoire has erected a few obstacles for her husband to overcome when he tries to storm her beach.
As a result, it is slightly less inviting.
One night after a series of failed landings where her husband was thrown back into the frigid waters, he successfully navigated the obstacles.
The next day an unexpected gift arrived.
Field Marshal Gregoire was suspicious. Was this unexpected gift an attempt to trick her into not manning the guns?
After a thorough investigation she fortunately determined that in this case, a thoughtful gift was in fact a thoughtful gift. It would be absurd for a husband to attempt to manipulate such a wife, after all.
