Really, I'm Being the Good Husband
Monday, February 14, 2005

Okay, quick little rant...but first, thanks for all the positive feedback on the Gilmore Girls issue.

Allright, the wife and I are pretty much broke. We agreed weeks ago not to do anything for Valentine's Day because of that fact. Now am I or am I not the good husband for obeying that agreement?

Today I get to work and my wife's gone off and snuck some candy and a card into my messenger bag. Suddenly, I feel like the bad hubby for not getting her something! Thankfully, I did have a last second backup plan...printing and binding 14 pages of cute emails from when we first started dating. ;) But still!!! Wasn't I being the good husband?

Freakin' capitalistic holidays....

ok, now heres a thought for all those poor misguided souls who actualy belive in valentines day and spending loads of money on gifts for their loved one(s)

VALENTINES DAY IS A CELEBRATION OF LOVE IN ALL ITS FORMS. this includes parental and family love, romantic love, and of course SELF LOVE or ego.

the most important thing about valentines is that you realise it is not just about gifts and candy....err that is lollies to us aussies......celebrate valentines every day, let the ones you love KNOW that you love them.....

so if your a dumb ass like me a sweet note in a lunch bag or a flower (even a pretty looking weed) picked from the yard makes a person feel more loved than a valentines gift on one set day in the year.

Well, I think that if you are broke, you both should have stuck to the agreement and the predominant reason not to would be guilt. and proactive retaliation. Your idea was excellent and yeah, much more meaningful than chocolates. cheers!

I know, I hate Valentine's Day. Don't get me started.
