Valentines Day leaves a bad taste in my mouth like those nasty little chalky hearts with the stupid messages.
Well the 3 of you that read this blog on the regular know I’m not big on holidays, so you already know that Valentines Day is just another day to me. I hate the idea that I’m required to show you love on one day a year. And the only reason it hurts low self-esteem having women people is because they are comparing their situation to others. Well let me give you some reasons to stop worrying about if you didn’t get any Valentines Day goodies from your loved one.
1. She may get a red heart full of chocolates today, but a red eye full of swelling tomorrow…. Sometimes big displays of love is just for show. Is he/she treating them with respect the rest of the year?
2. Is every day like Valentines day? Going with point # 1. Do you get flowers every day anyway. Then why trip on the one day of year when people jack up the price of everything because they know you will be in the dog house if you don’t buy them. It’s simple economics people.
3. Do y’all have the money for what you want? I say it like my mother use to tell me…
Me: “I want some Jordans!”
Ma Dukes (I’ve always wanted to say that): “You got some Jordan money?”
Maybe he decided a long time ago since you raised hell because he didn’t buy you that diamond necklace that you wanted and made you a heart out of construction paper because that’s all he could afford. It was either diamonds or rent, he decided to opt for keeping a roof over your head.
My fellow nerds… Am I just being mean and cynical or is Valentines day just another overrated holiday? Or am I just mad I didn’t get anything for V-Day?
