Happy non Valentine’s ordinary day!

Posted by shinymac on February 16, 2008

Yesterday, as I’m sure most of you know, was Valentine’s Day. Single people out there who don’t have admirers, or even those who do have admirers, but they are too much of a wimp or too lazy to think that you might appreciate a card, or gift, might envy those of us who are in relationships and happy and in love and all that sickly gooey stuff. Well, to those single people who did not receive a heart-covered card tucked into a shiny red envelope, or didn’t receive those velvet covered heart-shaped boxes of chocolates (one of which I am so going to treat myself to when they go into the M&S staff waste sale, mark my words!), or didn’t receive any acknowledgement from anyone that it was Valentine’s Day, envy no more, because neither did I.

About a week ago, Alex and I decided that we wouldn’t bother doing anything for Valentine’s Day this year. Yes, we were both in agreement, and I was at work on the night anyway, which meant we would hardly see each other all day, apart from first thing in the morning, a quick minute as I bundle the kids into the car at tea-time, and then late at night when I get home from work, so we wouldn’t have had time to “do anything” even if we had wanted to.

Well, that was all well and good, and it was a relief too in a way as we were feeling the pinch on the pennies a little.
However, I decided I would write him a poem and leave it out on the table for him to read in the morning over his muesli.
Just before he left for work, I got up and came downstairs as I realised he hadn’t even given me a goodbye kiss, which normally I wouldn’t even think about, but this was the day of love, apparently.
There he was scribbling on a piece of paper so fast there was almost visible steam coming off it. He chuckled slightly and handed me his effort at a response to my well structured, thought out, piece of poetry. I was not amused in the slightest, actually, that’s a bit of a fib. I found it hilarious, but I pretended to be annoyed, and secretly hoped that he’d have a surprise dinner waiting for me when I got in from work, with candles and champagne and chocolates and treats. Nope. Nothing.

So, the poem he’d written. This is that poem:

“I love you, I love you
Even though you have big hips
I love you, I love you
Especially your t*ts”

Haha! So romantic!

    And I know this says it was written on the 16th, well yes it was, but it was only just gone midnight, so officially, the day before yesterday was Valentine’s Day. Oops!
