At this point it’s hard to avoid or ignore the Valentine day madness. It’s so crazy that I believe in the near future February 14th will be made an actual holiday. What’s even crazier is that this year it falls on a Saturday- Soooo many guys are in trouble. How will they divide their “quality time”- wake up and spend all day with wifey 1- run out and spend all evening and night with wifey 2, and fight with concubine OR fight with wifey2 and spend the whole day with 1 OOOR….disappear all together…Hmmmm I wonder what the BIG excuse would be- I digress.
I and cupid used to be best of friends, but after all the years of living in the real world as opposed to fairytale world, it’s hard to remain friends. I have scars that remind me why this day is over rated. First of all, I attended an all girls boarding school- so
scratch valentine out of my secondary school days. After secondary school, My puppy love – realized the day existed when I had literally walked out of the relationship (like Temite- break up without telling him), he sat at home all day waiting for his little pixie to show up, meanwhile little Miss me had a rude awakening that day when my new love was torn between Me and his ex- So he Val-ed his ex in front of the whole school! and I ran back to my roots, met my poor puppy love sitting outside waiting for me…….(I still remained broken up after that oh!) LOL!........And you would think one bad experience is good enough to last you your life time, HA! Well, we all know that there’s always an appetizer before the main course. Now the main course totally Kills Cupid for me- On a faithful Valentine's day, while my mates were out exchanging presents and kisses, I get scarred. Now somebody tell me why my memories of Valentine’s day should be full of Love!
I know most of us have been scorched, burned, hurt or whatever, but I’m breaking my habit this year. After all, this is the year of change init? All those in favour of Obama and Change shout YES! And besides ain’t nothing I do can about the past, but I will not let it affect my future.……..Hey, don’t get me wrong, I’m not saying I’m going all out into the madness, NO! All I’m saying is I will try and change my attitude towards the occasion, and instead of dwelling on the nasty memories, I’ll do otherwise......And Besides the Mister is quite a *Dime Piece.
Speaking of which I have NO idea how these things are done or what to do…………….Any ideas People?
Please note: I am NOT the Mushy type so all mushy Ideas out the window! Thank you.
On second thoughts.......I think I'll use this year to make up with cupid...........:-)
