HARTFORD, Ky. (WEHT) – Valentine’s Day is a chance to get your significant other something special. Sometimes, people will let you in on what they’re looking for, but one Ohio County man’s Valentine’s mix-up caused some big laughs on Thursday.
Allan and Nina Harris, of Hartford, have been married since 2006.
For Valentine’s Day this year, Nina wanted something that would last so she told Allan that if he got her flowers, she’d like some tulips that she could plant outside.
Tulips are annual, which means they will come back every year.
However, Nina did not know how to react when Allan showed up with turnips for Valentine’s Day on Thursday.
Allan had apparently misunderstood what Nina wanted.
Once the couple worked through what had happened, Allan did eventually go and get some tulips as well.
Bobbi Jo Martin, Nina’s daughter, shared the story with us Thursday. She said she doesn’t believe anyone got a more unusual gift this year.
