Valentine’s Day Thoughts

Here we are once again with Valentine’s Day knocking on our doorsteps. I’m sure there are many of you who believe Valentine’s Day is just a huge money maker for the candy stores, flower shops, and of course Victoria Secret.

In truth, it is, but in THIS Redhead’s opinion, it is certainly worth it. I will admit though, being a writer, I have always been fond of the written word, done in longhand by my paramour at the time.

Certainly there is NOTHING wrong with flowers, or candy, or even going out to dinner, I just believe that for ME, it means more on a romantic level when the gift comes from the heart, and NOT the store.

Once I had a woman write me the most romantic poem ever, I read it, and it just melted me like ice. Another time I had a guy sprinkle rose petals all over my house and bed, he had soft, slow music playing on my stereo when I got home, and he had made a wonderful Chicken Parmesan dinner including dessert.

I must say, I was so overcome, well, let’s just say that while he made ME dessert, the favor was returned 10 fold. This year, unfortunately, I will be by myself. No one to make a fuss over me, and or whisper sweet nothings in my ear.

I did buy a little something for my neighbor though,  something sexy from Victoria Secret, I enclosed a card and asked if he would like to be my Valentine. I guess I’ll just have to wait and see on that one.

For all of you who have significant others, I wish you the happiest of days, and hopefully even HAPPIER nights. Happy Valentine’s Day Folks…

Until Later..

 

Valentine’s Day Shmalantine’s Day

 

YES!!! I know I’m already writing about Valentine’s Day and it’s ONLY the 29th. of January. I figured I would get a jump on it like Target and all the other stores. I mean what GOOD is it if you can’t buy your candy and roses two weeks ahead of time and then give them to your sweetie on Valentine’s Day?

 

Sure, the roses will be all withered and about dead, and the candy will be stale BUT…You will HAVE something for your significant other. Isn’t THAT really the point to this whole Holiday?

 

Let’s be honest here, Men will wait until the day before or the day OF and then go out and get something for us that is supposed to be heartfelt and all gooey romantic…BUZZZZZZZZZZZZ!!! One year when I was in a short term relationship and all I got was some bath salts from the freakin’ drugstore…SERIOUSLY???

 

I know what some of you are thinking…”Well Sooz, it’s the THOUGHT, not the actual gift that counts.” To THAT I say GOBBLESPLAT… ( Made up word, it just sounded funny). Usually, be honest here guys, you are JUST doing it so you can get a little action that night.

 

Look, I’m not saying that our guys don’t CARE for us, all I’m saying is that they don’t even THINK of us until the TV starts flooding the screen with ads about it; THEN, they HAVE to go out and get something to keep them in the running for Nookie that night.

 

How about this guys…Make us dinner with candlelight, do the dishes for us, tell us we are the most important thing in your world, THIS is what we’re looking for, the ROMANTIC gesture. Sure, roses and candy are nice, BUT, it doesn’t really show your romantic side.

 

This year how about all of you step up, make us FEEL like we are special; take a nice bath with us, TALK to us, let us know that you truly love us, if you do this, we will feel good about ourselves and the Nookie will be a shoe in…

 

Ohhh….For those of you like ME that may not have a significant other, do what I do, PAMPER yourself, get good and drunk, and fall asleep in the bathtub…

 

Until Later…
