Romantic Thoughts

My first Valentine’s Day ‘alone’… nope, still not divorced, but definitely living on my own.  Valentine’s Day often leads men and women to thoughts of romance and lurve…

i’m.  just.  not.  into.  it.

and, honestly?  that’s okay…

but, thoughts of the wife on this day were dredged up when i found this card…


[sigh]  if i’d only sent it… (and, no, i won’t).

Hope all of you get what you want… and don’t get what you don’t want… this Valentine’s Day.

    aw, c’mon…. you know she wants a flaming bag of dog poo on the porch. i can supply some if you need it…

    I remember my first Valentine’s Day alone (but also not divorced). If I recall, it was very hard. Fortunately, I was able to take matters in hand…

    I’m told Hallmark had a musical VD card out this year based on M*A*S*H featuring its theme song (“Suicide is Painless”).

    Oh come on people. It’s Valentine’s Day. These levels of cynicism and negativity are just not acceptable. Say it like you mean it *grin*
    I second us reverting to embracing the origins of the holiday – heart on a stick, dear?

    I think part of the joy of finding this is knowing that you could send it if you want but your bigger than that. Just your own private laugh knowing that it means something to you. Wish I had found something like this after my divorce–I would have sent it-I’m mean that way–but by then I was actually divorced. I tend to dumb down Valentines Day–just another made up way to get us to buy junk we don’t need in the first place Love my husband… don’t need Valentines to tell him everyday that I do–means more knowing that it’s not said just because of a holiday

    Well…*kiss*…happy valentines day anyway, Gnu. Hope next year’s includes fondle-able chicks!

    daisyfae – do you provide it already lit or do i have to do the “light and run” technique? it’s been awhile since i’ve done this (but love the idea… thanks!)

    kyknoord – that’s the old “can do” spirit… as the song goes, “If you can’t be with the one you love, honey, love the one you’re with!” i did…

    imeantno – [chuckling] for her? not for me… i’ve got too much to do!

    Miss P – there are origins to this beastly day, other than Hallmark? i have homework to do…

    hisqueen – yep, i enjoyed the private laugh at her expense. she’ll be laughing at my expense, come alimony time… but for now…

    dolce – thank you dear. i may someday have a *squish*-y one like you likely had. until then? off to find the fondle-able chicks! (but, isn’t that all of them?)
