It’s coming up on Valentine’s Day and I have a few thoughts. For those of you who may NOT know the story of Valentine’s Day, it all started back during the Roman Empire.
There are several different versions but let me give you the Romantic one. According to Wiki, (And who DOESN’T believe Wikipedia), Valentinus, a Catholic priest, was imprisoned for marrying soldiers of the Roman Empire. Supposedly, Rome believed that by getting married, the soldiers wouldn’t want to fight as hard for the Empire. All they would want to do is BOINK their wives and eat well… Whatever they ate back then, Curds and Whey I think.
Anyway, as the story goes, Valentinus said to HELL with Rome and secretly married the soldiers anyway. He was caught, arrested, and thrown into some deep dark dungeon somewhere to rot.
Okay, where was I now? Oh yeah…So, there he is sittin’ and rottin’ when the daughter of his jailer, a woman named Asterius, ( I KNOW…RIGHT???), what ever happened to like Delilah or SUE??? Anyway, she got the HOTS for Valentinus and he for her. I know, he was a priest and all, but dungeons and rottin’ CHANGE a man.
As it turns out, before his execution, he wrote a letter to his beloved and signed it…From your Vanentinus. Ever since, we write “From your Valentine” on our cards because well…Valentinus just doesn’t SOUND as nice now DOES it??? Wasn’t that a romantic story? Ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh…………..
So what are YOU doing for Valentine’s Day? Are you going to make a special dinner for YOUR beloved? Will you cover your table with Rose pedals and have long stemmed candles? Just so you guys KNOW, this is what I want. Just in case anyone out there might be thinking of me.
I always thought it would be romantic to make a gift box with coupons with special things in it. For example: A romantic bath for two, or one free week of washing the dishes. Of course a trip to Aruba or Cancun would also be nice, just some thoughts here guys…
What EVER you do for that special Valentine of yours, I hope it will be a ROMANTIC DAY for BOTH of you. **Winks** I’ll be thinking of everyone. Muah!!!
Happy Valentine’s Day Everyone…
