Valentines Day, that special day where you get to show love without being accused of being a woos, getting stirred by your mates and well… you know… not being a man.
Now of course if you don’t show it in some way – lets just say even in summer its cold sleeping outside….
Every year, the 14th of February has millions across the world scrambling to present their loved ones with candy, flowers, chocolates and other lovely gifts and god forbid if you forget.
Which one are you??? Have you forgotten???
Your partner/wife/girlfriend etc might say it’s alright honey, don’t worry about valentines day, it’s just another day, DON’T BELIEVE THEM… women are romantics even if they don’t show it… It goes a little like this…
“my hubby got me chocolates wasn’t that sweet, what did yours get you??” “I told him not to worry about it” “I see he forgot didn’t he!” her reply comes in tears – ‘YES’ TEARS… one word ‘screwed’
See what I mean you’re toast!! On the other hand if you remember even with something small and you weren’t reminded then instant brownie points.
Why? because you remembered, you thought of them you didn’t need a hint nothing – hearing what I’m saying?
In many countries, restaurants and such are filled with couples who are eager to celebrate their relationship and the joy of their togetherness through delicious cuisines.
There hardly seems to be a young man or woman and even some that are not so young who are not keen to make the most of the day.
People in secret send a message of ‘Happy Valentines Day’ to the person they admire without saying who it is from thus saving a possible rejection (thats sad really but I understand, I do truly – Leigh)
I remember in school (yes I remember somethings) notes used to fly around the room with ‘tick yes or no’ on them but without a name so you didn’t know who it was from – ah romance.
For those that like to celebrate Valentines Day, have a wonderful Valentines Day and for those who no longer have a partner just remember the memories and happy times they brought into your life – it helps
Anyway I have rambled on for too long, hey if you see me out on the road say gday or hit me up on UHF Channel 40
Till next time, take care, yours in country music – Leigh
