Truth be told, Iâ€™m not a huge fan of Valentineâ€™s Day. Itâ€™s not a matter of being single or otherwise chelsenguulâ€¦Â I just donâ€™t like the idea that I should love my Nearest-and-Dearest more today than any other day.
I prefer the old Elvis song that goes â€œI love you more today, more today than yesterdayâ€¦Â But less than I will tomorrow.â€Â It makes more sense in my chaotic mind than â€œI love you more today, but tomorrow isnâ€™t a holidayâ€”so donâ€™t expect much.â€
Truth be told, Iâ€™m not even a flowers and candy kind of girl. I canâ€™t do much with plants once theyâ€™re dead and I can buy my own MUNCH bars.
If necessary, Iâ€™d prefer something practical. Something I could use more than once. This year, I got a pizza pan and a cookie press. In light of my love for baking and feeding other people, I think it was a brilliant gift idea.
Truth be told, Iâ€™m the kind of girl whoâ€™s likely to buy my Nearest-and-Dearest some buuch and cigarettes, then insist on fried Spam and rice for dinner.
It doesnâ€™t seem particularly romantic, but in my mindâ€”it kinda works. The first time my Nearest-and-Dearest took me home to meet the family, she cooked me fried Spam and rice for lunch.
Itâ€™s certainly nothing fancy, but I recommend thoughtfulness over expense to anyone, any day!
So for Valentineâ€™s Day, try something simple for your own Nearest-and-Dearest.
Pack them a tet to go with their lunch. Put a note in. Even if it just says CHAILABIU, itâ€™s probably a lot more heartfelt than spending your entire paycheck on dinner and some flowers.
But then again, thatâ€™s just how I see Valentineâ€™s Dayâ€¦Â A rechad a kakerousâ€¦
