Happy Valentines Day!

Ok… if you seriously MUST know… I’m not as fond of the “obligatory” holidays.  I mean, what’s a guy SUPPOSED to do?  If he doesn’t do anything at all on V-day, he’s going to be considered a dirtbag.  And if he buys roses and chocolates and hallmark cards he’ll just be like every other guy that doesn’t have a clue what else to do.  If he buys lingerie he risks embarrassment in the store and the possibility of grabbing the wrong size (God forbid!).   
And if you’ve been married for awhile, they don’t have a chance because you know EXACTLY what they’re going to do… in my case, flounder around hopelessly the day before, frantically searching through the rejects in the card aisle to find one that might pass as a card they thoughtfully chose a month before, and pull through the Kroger floral “drive thru” to get the 2 dozen special.  
He can get by with this… WHY?  Because there’s that memory of dinner out together last week (and the week before that, and the week before that) and hanging out at the Starbucks catching up on “us” just about as often,  and snuggling in bed while we laugh at American Idol and see who can fast-forward through the commercials on the DVR most accurately… (this is truly an artform and requires a gifted individual)!  And just knowing that I’m his favorite and he’s mine, and there’s no one else in the world that would understand me quite like he does and still put up with me.  I pretty much married my best friend… and that’s the gift that keeps on giving :).  
So on Valentine’s Day, that’s what I wish for you… that you would find your best friend and get to spend your whole life together.  
On that note… a little “hoops and yoyo” to spread a little love your way…
