Hello darlings and welcome to the week of L-O-V-E!
I’m going to be perfectly honest: I don’t like Valentine’s Day. It’s not because I feel unloved or jaded. I just haven’t ever gotten into the whole hype of Valentine’s Day.
For many years I worked at Macy’s (I used to dress the mannequins and build displays), and every Valentine’s Day I’d peek into the perfume & jewelry departments, chuckling at the sea of wide-eyed men. Besides Christmas Eve, it was the only day of the year you’d see that many men in Macy’s.
I felt sorry for the poor guys.
What’s funny is that some things never change– I guarantee if I popped into Macy’s on Wednesday, it’d be filled with the same bewildered group of men. And while the intentions of those poor husbands and boyfriends are probably good, the insincerity of it all is barf-worthy to me. Rushing to get a gift on the day of a holiday, for the sake of a societal marketing ploy? Bleh.
Wait… am I slowly growing into a cynical old lady?
I’ve always been cynical.
And for the record, I don’t even like red roses. They don’t smell nearly as wonderful as the yellow… or white…or peach roses. Also, I pity the fool who tries to buy me MILK chocolate. Anyone who actually knows me, knows that I prefer dark chocolate over milk, and caramel over anything.
But to all of you lovers out there who still believe in romantic gestures, we are truly hoping you have a wonderful Valentine’s Day!
Chloe Bisou and I will be probably hitting the sack early, snuggling under the covers and sharing a warm cup of tea. THAT to me is true (pug) love.
What are your plans for Valentine’s Day? Feel free to leave us a comment below!
