Thank heavens this year, February 14th, is on a weekend so I don’t have to keep up-ing myself every year to impress… who you ask? My wife’s co-workers! You were probably thinking I was trying to impress my wife, right??? Well, heck no, I give her stuff all the time. I come home, on the very oddest of days, and bring her a couple roses or even a bouquet just to see her gleaming face of appreciation?! Yes, I do that all the time. Why? Because I usually get a kiss... and because I love my wife. I like to surprise her and keep a little bit of excitement in our relationship!
Although, on the day of the cupid, you are supposed to go WAY overboard to show up all the other husbands and boyfriends, etc… who bought their “sweetie” gifts and sent them to their wives, girlfriends, lovers, mistresses, etc… at their places of employment. The rose bouquet becomes a status symbol, if you will. The bigger the bouquet, the bigger the wallet. However, this year, I would say, the bigger the bouquet, the bigger the stupidity… who really can afford to spend $200 + on something that is going to DIE in a couple of days?
Well, not me, not me. Sorry 1-800-flowers.com! Not this year… I would like to be able to pay for things such as my mortgage, water bill and my son’s impending hospital bills… So, stop sending me all the FREE Shipping emails, with all the fine print! When you get to the website reads, with any purchase over $75 or more! Evil.
