Top 10 Things You Don’t Want On Valentine’s Day

14/02/2014

“I don’t understand why Cupid was chosen to represent Valentine’s Day. When I think about romance, the last thing on my mind is a short, chubby toddler coming at me with a weapon.”  Author Unknown

Dead Flowers are a no no

Happy Valentine’s Day 2014 – Dead Flowers are a no no

Dead Flowers

A Card With That Hoochie’s Name On It

A Gift Addressed To Someone Else

Cheap Chocolates In a Godiva Box

A Souffle Or Anything That Doesn’t Rise

Hot Lingerie that Doesn’t Fit


Ella Fitzgerald – My Funny Valentine (High Quality – Remastered)

Happy Valentine’s Day 2014! I hope you are having a wonderful time and enjoying the laxative chocolates you received. Now if you’re lucky, you might get all you asked for. If not, find some humor in it and keep on strutting. You are loved by someone out here. Enjoy the music. Come back for the rest. Better yet, give me a one liner to add and I if I add it below, I’ll  give you a surprise gift.

I wish everyone a very Happy Valentine’s Day! May you find HUMOR, joy, love, peace and pleasure in your home and surroundings. While this is a day for love, some people won’t  celebrate it. Send your laughter, love prayers and blessings to the lonely and then sprinkle the rest around the globe.

    Hahaha – nope, I definitely don’t want dead flowers. Which just reminded me of something funny. My papa (who is now long gone) used to get my nana’s valentine’s day flowers off of dead people’s graves at the cemetery. Ok, maybe it wasn’t funny at the time, but to hear my nana tell the story is pretty funny now.
