This will be my husband's and my 16th Valentine's day together. After 16 years I have to admit I am done with the holiday. First off, it is a holiday that only caters to women. I mean, how many pairs of red boxer shorts does a man need?! Last year I saw a girl making her boyfriend a build-a-bear. What a waste of money! Can you name me one guy who would like to get a fully outfitted teddy bear as a gift?
Second, I don't like half of the stuff that are normal gifts of Valentine's day.....I don't like jewellry, I don't like roses, and I hate lingerie!
I think if you are romantic on some of the other 365 days of the year you really don't need that one day to tell you to be romantic. Maybe I'm wrong.
So, I guess I'll take this opportunity (on February 13th) to say that I am happy to have had 16 wonderful Valentine's days with my Joseph......and if he ever shaves his beard off I'll drop him like a hot potato! tee, hee!
