I like Valentine's Day. There. I admitted it. Throw tomatoes at me now. LOL
I like all the trappings. The cards, although I hate the sappy ones. The boxes of candy. I go to a local beach chocolate shop and stock up for Valentine's Day. Those candy pebbles and handmade dark chocolate caramels and chocolate fudge are much better than those dried out rocks that pass for chocolates from a Whitman's Sampler. I even bought a bouquet of flowers for myself and they're in my favorite vase right now. We're going to see The Woman In Black tomorrow to celebrate.
I put fresh batteries in my favorite new vibrator. Yee hah!
That said, I know lots of men don't like Valentine's Day because they say it's a trite holiday created by card and candy companies to shame people into buying things they don't need. That's just an excuse. What they're really waiting for is the fake holiday exactly one month from now.
Steak and BJ Day.
That's the dude's answer to feeling forced to buy flowers and bon bons for the women in their lives. They expect payback next month. What a horrible but amusing way to look at Valentine's Day! The women's answer to that joke of a day is a month later - Cake and Cunnilingus Day. This could go on all year, one gender baiting the other with fake holidays until Talk Like A Pirate Day in September.
Anyway, if you like Valentine's Day, why not buy your sweetie a hot and sexy book? A book lasts forever whilst a box of chocolates lasts only until you take one bite out of each chocolate to see which ones are good and which ones are gross. I recommend my book Don't Call Me Baby because it's on special sale for the next couple of weeks. Pick up your copy now!
My book Don't Call Me Baby is on a special sale at AllRomanceEbooks for the next couple of weeks. It's half off at five bucks. So for the price of a mocha latte you can get a fun and sexy book. Just think: once you drink the latte it's gone but a good book lasts forever.
