Things that make you go Mmm …

I ran across this today on Fiancee’s blog …

For anyone too lazy to click, it’s an interesting article about how unfair guys have it for Valentine’s Day …

Fiancee argues that men have to buy a woman something shiny and if she approves, he’ll get sex…

he likens this to legalised prostitution …

I can understand his argument …

to a point ..

but I am a little confused as to why HE of all people is making this particular argument!

You see …

Fiancee and I have been together for more than five years … nearly six in a few months …

When Fiancee and I first got together it was June so V-Day didn’t come around for quite a while …

When V-Day was looming near Fiancee dropped the bombshell …

“I don’t believe in Valentine’s Day”

I, being pretty much a tomboy, breathed a sigh of relief …

You see, I’m an odd bird … I don’t really believe in Valentine’s Day either …

There’s a few reasons;

From a female perspective, the media (a.k.a. stupid chick magazines) build up Valentine’s Day to be such a big deal and if you’re not getting flown on your man’s private jet to some far-flung part of the world then you’re probably settling for less … what a load of crap!

I’m not into flowers … I’ve never really gotten them … I mean to me a man giving me flowers is like saying “Here look at the pretty things that will die in a week – they’ll die because I picked them and killed them for you” …

I mean really it’s like giving a girl a cat riddled with cancer that’s going to die in a week …

something in our culture I don’t understand …

if a man wants to give me flowers he should plant them in a garden and take a photo!

It’s been so long that I’ve forgotten how Valentine’s Day works but I always thought that a couple exchanged gifts …

I’m terrible at buying gifts!

Worse than terrible; like buying wine for a recovering alcoholic terrible

It’s been that bad!

So, one less gift to buy in a year is fine by me!

This brings me back to Fiancee’s blog post about how unfair he has it come Valentine’s Day time ..

Mmmm ….

In five years he’s never bought me a Valentine’s Day gift …

I’ve never expected a gift or anything special …

To the extent that I didn’t even know that yesterday was Valentine’s Day …

What the heck is he whinging about?

Of course, come to think of it I don’t think he’s ever gotten sex on Valentine’s Day either …

Mmmm …
