Celebrating v-day -- What is the most interesting gift you've been given? #MFRWorg #Rssos #Mondayblog

 
How did you celebrate V-day?

 

This year, I said to Handsome to not buy me anything. No chocolate as I have found myself eating way too much (am now on week four of not having eaten any). No flowers. No fancy meal. Instead, I wanted to walk as we always do on a Sunday with the Adora-poos and stop at the donut shop.

Have I said how much I love donuts?

I really do and especially the buttermilk cake ones. But unless I go buy them (which I don't because I'd eat mass quantities), I don't get them. Handsome will on occasion; however, he gets plain ol' glaze. Don't get me wrong--nothing wrong with glazed donuts. I just love buttermilk cake more.

As a single girl, even though I dated, I didn't get many Valentine's gifts. I'm thinking it is because those guys thought they felt a gift meant commitment.

Hardly.

I did get something unexpected once. In fact, so unforgettable, I wrote a story around it. The rain was drizzly. I exited my car and trotted toward my apartment, noting something white stuck in the door frame. That seemed odd. Once there, I found a note, in fact, a Dear John letter.

I was livid. How dare some moron write a girl a Dear John letter on Valentine's Day? And the more I thought, the angrier I became. If he did it to me, he'd do it to someone else. On behalf of all women in America, I was NOT going to let that happen.

I phoned him. Multiples times. He didn't answer which was probably smart on his part.

A girlfriend popped by and when I showed and told what happened, she stuck out her hand and said, "Give it to me. I need matches, too." I followed directions well and gave them to her.

She went to the fireplace and touched the flame to the paper. Then she sang, "Feelings."

I died laughing. "Nothing more than..."

Together, "Feelings."



So THANK YOU to the Valentine moron. You gave me laughs, a great story to remember, and write about.

Sometimes, the littlest Valentine from our honey is really what we want.


Share anything about Valentine's Day with me!

Valentines Day took on a whole new meaning for me 30 years ago. You see, my husband and I were so broke, I had to borrow 50 cents to buy him a cheap card. It just so happens that I was 8 1/2 months pregnant with our 1st child. I got and gave my very best Valentine present when our son was born just 20 minutes before midnight that Valentines Day! LOL! I don't see how that one can ever be topped!

Hi, Cathy! That is an awesome story. We were struggled too when we first married. We bought a house and interest rates were 14%!!! Thank you for sharing.

My Handsome was born the day after Valentine's Day! I'm afraid he was always shorted on presents with two days right in a row like that!

My hubby surprised me with flowers, a chocolate man and a candle. I made marinated steak for dinner and we watched some movies. It was a perfect day!

Hi, Liese! LOL. I always wondered about Christmas birthdays, wondered if they had lots of gifts! My understanding is no and many began celebrating half birthdays instead. Not a bad idea. Fortunately, I didn't have this situation. Hugs!

Hi, Melissa! That is a very nice surprise. And a steak dinner sounds pretty yummy to me.

Hi, Stanalei! Well, at the time, I was pretty livid. LOLOL. Never ever heard nor saw Mr. Moron again. I'd like to and just give him one last nasty look.
