IT’S AMAZING HOW DESPERATE some folks get around this time of year. Valentines day is rapidly approaching and it’s as if some herd instinct has taken over. The prices of flowers, chocolates (don’t get me started on that topic again!), soft toys and just about every other ‘romantic’ connotation shoots through the roof and the world goes crazy.
It is a close second to see the poor slobs treking around the shops trying valiently to find the ‘perfect gift’ for their loved ones. I say a close second because the Easter rush tops the scales for pure unadulterated commercialism, and that last mad dash for the few remaining eggs is always a blood sport. Men desperately try to impress women, and women desperately try to pretend it doesn’t matter to them, but in the end it’s all just desperation.
SusiQ and I are rather different in this respect mind you; which pisses off our friends to seemingly extreme lengths on a regular basis. They just don’t get it. You see we treat Valentines day as the one day in the year when we can pretty much ignore each other. Completely.
