" my mobile phone quit as i tried to let my wife know that i was caught in traffic and would be late for our anniversary dinner. i wrote a message on my laptop, asking other motorists to call her, printed it on a portable inkjet, and taped it to my rear windshield. when i finally arrived home, my wife gave me the longest kiss ever. 'i really think you love me,' she said. 'at least 70 people called me and told me so.' "
