Ladies and Gentlemen:
This is the Battle of the Bands!
As always, a big thank you to FAE (faraway eyes) for the original creative spark that started what would become the Battle of the Bands and to STEPHEN T. "Brudder!" McCARTHY for hosting and keeping us on track. The Battle gets posted on the 1st and 15th of each month and results appear magically six days later, God willing.
How'd your Valentine's Day shake out? Did you and your honey "cut a rug?" Did you give him/her some sugar? Get or give flowers...candy...
Long ago, my dear husband put forth the theory that Valentine's Day was for card-hoarding schmucks and those who pride themselves on public displays of affection. Hey...it's HIS theory; I kinda take the stance that there's not enough celebrations in the world and I'll take all I can get, regardless of origin. Hallmark...well played.
For Hubzam's benefit and amusement, each February 14th, I respond with a ridiculous display of heart-shaped food, candies, and miscellaneous goodies. I'll celebrate alone, if necessary. But, it's never necessary.
My refusal to ignore Hallmark's challenge to love it up and his solid insistence it's a "made up holiday" makes us both smile at our mutual stubbornness. We're actual a greatly matched pair, comfortable with our weird quirks and willingness to (actually, the way we look forward to) laughs at our own expense. I love that about him.
In short, it's sure handy to have a honey. If you don't have one...get one. If you have one -- hold on to them! If you've got a BAD one, think long and hard about who you will spend next Valentine's Day with...life is too short. And you're always welcome to stop by my house on the 14th of February for heart-shaped meatloaf and dessert.
But if you still think you're unlucky in love, maybe you just need to find a HANDYMAN...hmmmm...
