I promised myself I wouldn't write a sappy, overly saccharine Valentine's Day (or as my cute Swiss students say, "Walentine's Day") post. I'm sort of on the fence here. Part of me would love to revel in the romantic candle lit dinner, roses, chocolates and pink and red hearts all over the place. The other part wants to just boycot the whole day because I don't feel like there should be one single day of the year where your partner should show you how much they care. What a commercial occasion this is! I hate to think of how much chocolate companies, flower shops, Hallmark cards, and Victoria's Secret (okay, LaSenza if you're in Canada) are raking in today. Well...if I want to be positive, then one good thing comes out of this. I suppose it's good for the economy and those who like to be showered with material things :) I'm just kidding. I'm not really this jaded.
I love Valentine's Day. Hubby's really, really sweet and thoughtful...and romantic. I won't go into that though, since I promised not to be excessively sentimental today.
I leave you with a joke that my mom e-mailed to me today:
"A Woman's Definitions Of Everyday Words"
A discussion that occurs when you're right, but he just hasn't realized it yet.
What a woman intentionally becomes when pulled over by a policeman.
You bought the groceries, washed the lettuce, chopped the tomatoes, diced the onions, marinated the meat and cleaned everything up, but, HE, "made the dinner."
BLONDE JOKES (blond joks)n.
Jokes that are short so men can understand them.
Gotta get married in a church.
CLOTHES DRYER (kloze dri*yer)n.
An appliance designed to eat socks.
DIET SODA (dy*it so*da)n.
A drink you buy at a convenience store to go with a half pound bag of peanut M&Ms.
The last two minutes of a football game.
To walk up and down a mall, occasionally resting to make a purchase.
GROCERY LIST (grow*ser*ee list)n.
What you spend half an hour writing, then forget to take with you to the store.
HAIR DRESSER (hare dres*er)n.
Someone who is able to create a style you will never be able to duplicate again. See "Magician."
HARDWARE STORE (hard*war stor)n.
Similar to a black hole in space - if he goes in, he isn't coming out anytime soon.
You get to go through 36 hours of contractions; he gets to hold your hand and say "focus,... breath...push..."
On your lips, coloring to enhance the beauty of your mouth. On his collar, coloring only a tramp would wear...!
Before children, a verb meaning, "to go somewhere and neck." After children, a noun meaning a place with a swing set and slide.
The most important ingredient for dating, marriage and children. See also "Tranquilizers."
WATERPROOF MASCARA (wah*tr*pruf mas*kar*ah)n.
Comes off if you cry, shower, or swim, but will not come off if you try to remove it.
VALENTINE'S DAY (val*en*tinez dae)n.
A day when you have dreams of a candlelight dinner, diamonds, and romance, but consider yourself lucky to get a card.
