That's a really good answer and I think that would be my answer, too. Not enough people express their love for each other, so i think it's great that you're so open with the phrase "i love you". Personally, i'm someone who, a lot of the time, thinks that i should treat my day as the last day of my life - so i hate having "loose ends". So i tell my parents i love them absolutely every night, and i use the thought of "hey you might never see this person again", to push myself to express what i'm feeling.
Whaaaaat! Green tea pocky? I'm pretty sure that's the ONLY flavor they dont have at that japanese shop. I so want to try that . Reminds me of green tea kit kat, which i've also never had a chance to taste. Hmmm, i think once my little willpower challenge is over, i have a little green tea candy shopping to do.
