Yes I know... it's 10:00 on Valentines night and I haven't said a word about it yet.
That's because I couldn't decide what to say.
At first I thought I wanted to write something snarky about it, but then after reading 500 other blog posts about Valentines Day I didn't think anybody would want to read any more. So instead I decided to share a quote from my famous Holidays calendar...
"Women receive chocolate, flowers, jewelry, love notes and fine dining. Men receive - the bill." -- famous blogger Jeff LeeThen I thought I'd cite some famous love song lyrics but all I kept coming up with were breakup song lyrics. I have no idea why. I wasn't feeling crabby and I'm not breaking up with anyone that I know of. I just had breakup songs stuck in my head. And strange ones at that. For example:
Love on the rocksand
Ain't no surprise
Pour me a drink
And I'll tell you some lies
Got nothing to lose
So you just sing the blues all the time
I'm never gonna dance againand
guilty feet have got no rhythm
though it's easy to pretend
I know you're not a fool
Should've known better than to cheat a friend
and waste the chance that I've been given
so I'm never gonna dance again
the way I danced with you
I've been through diamondsbut THIS one really got lodged in my skull...
I've been through minks
I've been through it all...
(J. Geils Band)
Love hurts, love scars,Of course all this ended up doing was cause me to belt out Love Hurts in the shower this morning - which was great for me because it's an awesome song, but not so great for the rest of my family because I can't sing that high so I had to scream it out instead in a frighteningly painful falsetto. ... I KNOW IT ISN'T TRUE.... I KNOW IT ISN'T TRUE... LOVE IS JUST A LIE... MADE TO MAKE YOU BLUE!
Love wounds, and marks,
Any heart, not tough,
Or strong, enough
To take a lot of pain,
Take a lot of pain
Love is like a cloud
Holds a lot of rain
Love hurts, ooh ooh love hurts
Fortunately everyone at my house is used to my shower songs so nobody even said anything.
Finally, I thought maybe I'd write my wife a nice love note here for the rest of the world to read where I would tell her how proud I am of her and how much I adore and love her. But then I thought those things are probably best kept private.
So the bottom line is I guess I have nothing to say about Valentines Day.
Oh well, maybe I can come up with something clever for President's Day instead. Provided everyone else doesn't ruin it for me first.
