Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) on Wednesday sent chocolates to Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi's (D-Calif.) office for her 74th birthday.
In a short note to Pelosi, Boehner said he was guessing that Pelosi didn't give up chocolates. He guessed wrong, but the thought is what counts, right? And chocolate doesn't go bad in less than a month so no harm, no foul.
Pelosi thanked Boehner on Twitter while noting that the gift will test her during Lent, which lasts 46 days and is now about half over. Both Pelosi and Boehner are Catholic.
