Valentine's Day 2007

I can't for the life of me remember the last time I celebrated Valentine's Day. It was probably in my teens. If my memory serves me well, I think it must have been at least 8 years ago that I bought some roses for my lady for Valentine's Day but I definitely know that I did not buy them on the day. Only idiots buy roses on Valentine's Day.

Generally, I don't like to buy flowers as gifts cos' I don't see the point of seeing my gift wilting away. It's too depressing. Well, not depressing but that uneasy feeling of wasting hard earned money on something that does nothing except die. I might as well tie some cash to some branches and burn it. I'd get more kick out of that and I guarantee you that it will be memorable. We'd always be like, 'remember that Valentine's Day when we torched some cash?'

What does the rose symbolise? Love and affection? So, my love and affection only lasts for about a couple of weeks? That sounds good to me if I was looking for a one night stand or maybe a fuck buddy. If I'm really serious about a relationship, I'd buy kitchenware. Nothing says, 'you're wife material' than a set of good pots and pans.

The only good thing that comes out of Valentine's Day is when one is still single. There's a lot of buzz leading up to this day. Will he/she ask me to be his/her Valentine? Y'know, all that mushy stuff. Valentine's Day is like receiving a progress report. If that girl that you've been pursuing for a few months agrees to dinner (which is basically prime time) with you then you know that you're in. You da' MAN! Lunch means that there's a chance next year that you'd be bumped to dinner so, it's basically a 'try harder' signal. If you score breakfast, you're more like the really close gay friend that she never had. So, you can pretty much forget about it. If you don't even get a slot on this day, then it's time to think of ways to get back all those expensive gifts that you've been showering her with without looking like a cheap ass.

So, to all those single people that are celebrating Valentine's Day, I wish y'all good luck and hope y'all get the dinner slot.

As you might have guessed, I'm not a romantic but Happy Valentine's Day...suckers.

hahaha... suckers indeed.

it's ironic that couples will tend to avoid this date and they will either have a pre or post celebration, if at all while the singles will have mass depression gathering, making this day so significant and swear they will stay single forever and on top of that... get ripped off!
