Happy Valentine’s Day my lovelies! It’s that time again….time for the annual Valentine’s Day ode to the hubs. I just can’t help myself again. Don’t you worry–we are still keeping the magic alive on this special day. I have an appointment with my ob-gyn for my annual visit (I hope it’s as special for her as it is for me.) and hubs is probably going to a work thing with his boss and two other dudes. This? Is what girls dream about. I might round out the day with a few loads of laundraaaay. Not sure yet. I like to keep my options open.
 
What about you? Do you think V-Day is just a cheesy Hallmark holiday or are you waiting with bated breath and outstretched arms for your flowers, candy, and candlelight dinners? However you want to express your lovin’, I hope everyone feels the love on V-Day!
 
 
NO, NO, NO, NO, NOOOOOO. Just, NO!!!!!!

 

 
 
Roses are red.
Violets are not.
Bringing me flowers on V Day
Just ain’t that hot.
 
Lemme sleep in,
Take the kids at witching hour.
Bring me some gin.
But keep yo damn flower!
 
A sweater, a scarf, even a purse I can do.
Of course, you know me likie shoes, too.
And don’t spend 8 grand on some huge sappy card,
Just say I love you–don’t make it that hard.
 
Save your cashola to feed the muffin top.
Some seafood or steak?
But please , no lamb chops. (BAA!)
 
If you show with even one stinking rose,
I swear to God I’m gonna break your nose.
Oy, do you know the mark up on V Day?
And seriously, could it be any more cliche?
 
If you really want me to swoon?
                    
Bring me a 12 pack some random day in June!
The only “Buds” I wanna see from my man?
Come in a lovely glass bottle or can.
 
Oh, don’t be afraid–I’m not starting a fight.
You always *mostly* get it just right.
And if you can’t find that perfect gift for me?
I know of one that is perfectly free!
 
You can *for once* just replace the TP!                                                
It’s already bought and wrapped in clear plastic!
It’s so super soft and perfectly round.
Under the sink is where it is found.
And when you need it, it sure is fantastic.
What? I’m not even being sarcastic!  
 
I love you, dear.
I love you so much.
You’ve nothing to fear.
Your gifts, always clutch.
 
If my demands seem mean or even nasty,
You knew when we married
I’d be bringing some sassy!
 
I must confesss now, I don’t care what you do         
As long as you read this and still love me, too!
 
 *Props to the very funny wendiaarons.com for teaching me how to make that bitchin’ heart! Check out her site!
 
Well, ladies? What say you?

I’m pretty sure that Elizabeth Barrett Browning is rolling over in her grave but, I love your “LOVE” poem.

Oh come on, OTG! She might have had a sense of humor? I can’t corroborate that she liked beer though. Hmm! :)

Darlene, I guess if our biggest marital complaint is the empty tp roll, we’re doing ok!

Thanks, @Dawn. That means a ton coming from you, the bride of Swervy. No really–thank you so much! And Happy VD Day, my dearie!

Thanks for the big giggle! I had lots of fun reading it aloud to my hubby. He’s smiling. I guess he appreciates your attitude. I know I do. :)

@Jolyse Thank you! Now tell your hubs that my hubs actually came through with a fun mani/pedi gift card yesterday (that I was happy to receive, believe me) but….I did ask him, “Where is my beer though?” THus proving, sometimes men just can’t win! :)

Isn’t there a 3 wish limit on Valentine’s Day? You’re pretty high-maintenance for a woman who writes poetry.

Gorilla….this is really about me not liking bananas, isn’t it? It’s okay, you can just say it….
