“14-02 & Heart Break” - Breaking The Habit.



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...........:-)

ShonaVixen said...

Damn...comment moderation...sigh...
Well, well, you write Mister A LOVE LETTER for starters (yes o, if I can't get my own letter then why not encourage others to send out their letters!)..so that's my contribution!!..lol..

I don't know that this will help you, but GF and I are leaving Valentine's Day with Hallmark. Everyday can be a day of love. There is not a day that goes by that a person can meet "The One" , for those who are single.

For us, we are choosing not to spend money on each other Feb. 14th. Instead we are saving for a trip to Italy in October. We will have a hellava Valentine's week there. So what if it's not February.

Funms-the rebirth said...

I didnt even know you have a Mr. So like are you married? Nevermind me I am very unserious. And oh, I informed the dude, I wrote him a letter (yes, I broke up a more than a year relationship by writing him a letter). He was not amused but I am single o. Err let us see, cant really give you any advice cuz I am currently in I HATE MEN mode. so yeah. Have fun on that day. I will be in bed, eating chocolates and weeping copiously. hmmmm should be fun.

Afrobabe said...

Yeeeeeeeeeeeee i was first...I beat Shona...Shona I beat you...lol

Naughty Eyes said...

There's definitely something about that pix. Poor Cupid! A pity he seems to be getting so much hate nowadays.
If I were any of the guys with Wifey 1 or 2 or 3, I'd just do the safest thing and disappear inside a church praying they don't skiin my ass when they catch me.
Honestly, I'm totally clueless when it comes to Valentine but I too am going with Change on that day.
I'll sleep instead...

~Sirius~ said...

@ Temite Darling...(I forgive you for calling me unserious on SSS's Spot) I'm not married oh!..."Hate men mode" huh? been there......your plans for that day don't sound bad at all!
@ Nefertiti.......I can tell from your tone of excitement that you and cupid are tied to the hip.....that means I have hope......and why are we all cynics?!

rethots said...

Bondgirl said...

From Down under we thank you for your concern!! As for plans for V day, go simple girl....find out what he would do on his perfect day off. Good luck

bob-ij said...

I literally went from sad face to smiles!!! Making up with cupid is lovely, but I feel you on the none-mushyness, NOT ME at all.

Hmm...what to do... i think an "IDEAL" present will do... just to show you've been listening and know what he needs or wants...
*That's what I'm doing *wink

p.s. how do I do multicolours in my posts.. pls not HTML tags! :(

SHE said...

Sorry lady, I've got no ideas for you.
Never been much of a believer in Val.
Maybe....
sorry, like i said earlier, no ideas!!!

~Sirius~ said...

@ Rethots....I said I will try making up with cupid this year, so unless you are cupid.....are you? hmm?
@ Bondgirl.....welcome sweetie, glad you are ok....Simple it is!
@ Bob-ij.....I'm happy I literally wiped the sad face away.....ideal you say.....so I guess I'm working with Simple and Ideal. Hmmmmm.......Nice. Hooked you up with colour texting- your spot.
@ SHE....LOL, thanks for trying to think....
