The Ballad of Michael Valentine

Today is the most sacred of made up holidays.   And this year it is falling on a Saturday.

If you haven’t gotten your dinner reservations made yet, be ready to break out the white belt and shoes, because you’ll be going to the Early Early Bird Special.

You’ll be back home by 5:30p.  Lucky you.

VD means nothing to me, or us.  There might be a card, but if not, it is not the end of the world.  It’s no biggie.   We’re certainly not fighting the crowds to go out – even if we did pre-plan……..which we didn’t.

No doubt I’ll hit the gym today and then maybe a matinee movie.  The former would keep me in condition to live to see another VD, the latter, well, that will keep me on track for my one movie per month deal I’ve got going in my head – even though we always lose that deal before end of the year.

I don’t have to ask him to ‘Bee Mine’.  He already is.   He ain’t going nowhere.    … least I don’t think he is.

  1. If there’s a card for the day, we most likely don’t celebrate it. No birthdays, Valentine’s Day, Arbor day, or anything. We’re special like that. We celebrate each other EVERY day, that way we don’t have to remember to stop by the grocery store to pick up a card on any particular day.

  2. Yeah, it’s such a silly holiday. The bf and I are throwing a birthday party for a 4-year-old! That’s how serious we take VD day. 😛

  3. I know exactly what you’re saying….this boy aint’ going anywhere! And the Early Bird Specials…those are our favorites. We often find ourselves in restaurants all alone…because we’re far earlier than anyone else. Ahh…..age.

  4. Plus you have asked him that every year for the past fifteen years, since that episode came out…
