Fui quod es, eris quod sum. I once was what you are, you will be what I am - epitaph carved on Roman gravestones.
I just realized this is my first Valentines Day being single since 1994. I think I was coming off a really shitty breakup then and took it bad, but other than that, I've never given much thought to Valentines Day, good or bad. My ex gave me a mix tape (yes, actual tape) on our first one and I don't remember ever doing anything special after that. She actually used to go to some convention thing that was around the 14th every year, so half the time she wasn't around anyway. Last year, I was in a new relationship and set the expectation early that I didn't plan to do anything for it.
This was the brunch I had made for me today. A bacon and egg cupcake with smiley ketchup.
Well. Got my plans all lined up for tonight.
Hahaaa. Here's mine:
(and I'm quite looking forward to it.)
I was going to finish off this growler of beer I have in my hotel room fridge by myself tonight.
But I had a pretty frustrating morning at work, that I drank most of it during my lunch.
Now I don't know what to do with my evening.
Oh, yes! We want a full report.
We're getting take-out from my favorite restaurant and having a candlelit dinner for 3 at home. Should be the best Valentine's ever.
Nicest son; biggest asshole boyfriend. Noted.
Hahaaa. Sorry Mo. Oh, how the board makes decisions quickly.
Also, I just received a text inviting me out to dinner tonight. The text came in at 11:39am. Men, this is a good example of what not to do on Valentine's Day.
So, I've noticed that my ass cheeks are starting to droop and went to ask Pete for his opinion...
"They aren't drooping, those are chair marks..."
And that is why he's My Valentine... Happy Heart-Ons to All of You!
I'm gonna pick up a nice bottle of scotch on the way home, work-out, then prepare a lovely candlelit meal consisting of goat cheese stuffed piquillo peppers, mussels à la marinière, grilled lobster tails, and a medley of sautéed vegetables.
Don't ask me out. Ever. Anyone. If you know what is good for you.
