I love flowers,
I especially love roses.
I thought to myself today,
I wonder how many boquets
are purchased for Valentines!
Some friends and I were
having a discussion
on whether it is an easy gift.
One of us feels that no thought has to be put into them at all,
And usually they are bought for her in some form of an apology
She said it is like buying socks and shorts at Christmas.
That it just becomes something you do!
Then I said well I appreciated the thought behind the gift,
and I was reminded about a certain piece of lingerie.
I think a man tempts his own fate,
it is either too small and then I sometimes think he must be blind if he thinks my butt will fit into a triangular piece of cloth which would probably fit better as a patch for a pirate outfit for halloween!
Then if they buy something that is way too big, you think well just how big does he think I am?
So I really believe they set themselves up for heartache.
one year I was asked and I said,
oh just some nice sexy pjs, how hard can it be right.
wrong, he came home prouder than a boy that had just hit his first homerun.
and gave me the brightest pink and blue mumu tent dress I had ever seen!
Comfort is definately one thing, but I also believe nowhere, nohow do they come across as sexy.
I guess I have watched Mrs. Roper too many times on T.V.
to ever be able to appreciate them properly.
So I think the best gift is chocolate,
advice to all men, don't give it the same time as a diet book!
That could definately be a real no no!
My idea of a great Valentines Day
is too spend it with my husband.
we usually write each other a poem,
sometimes there serious, sometimes hilarious,
and we usually cook supper together!
The best gift I could have is just being together!
I always say don't get me anything,
he says he won't but usually those roses come home!
Because he knows I love them.
I would love to hear what your idea of Valentines is!
Love to you all.
