A SPECIAL VALENTINE"S POST....
(GOOD ADVICE FOR THE GUYS HERE!!!) LOVE IS IN THE AIR!! Super Bowl is over and the next February food frenzy is Valentine's Day. Whether it's dinner at a romantic restaurant, chocolates or a bottle of bubbly and fondue at home, romantics everywhere know this is the time of year when there are no excuses if you forget February 14th. Now just because Valentine's Day falls on a Saturday this year....there are still certain rules that apply to this particular date. Turn that unlucky Friday the 13th into her special day!!! Valentine's Day is your chance to make up for any and all errs of the heart you made the previous year. Make her feel special all over again. Tell her and show her that she is indeed the most beautiful and desirable woman in all the world and you simply can't live without her. WHEW!!! That's a tall order, huh? One of the most important rules of romance is that if you are going to get flowers for your beloved make sure you send them to her place of work (Hint to Geraldo: I AM A CAREER GIRL THIS YEAR!! I have an office!!) so she can have that moment of girlish glory among her peers, proving that she does indeed have someone who loves her enough to send her overpriced flowers. Think of it like this...it's kind of like why guys drive those big ole trucks with those ridiculously huge tires. You know they do it for their buddies to appreciate. It can't be easy jumping up into that big ole thing and those knobby tires have got to be tough on the tush. It's all about the show...you know... it's human nature wanting to show off a little. Now, you could get by with bringing some flowers and a box of candy home on that Saturday...but there's nothing like that big swell of emotion that every girl gets when she sees the top of a big bouquet passing thru the office. Us girls would be lying if we didn't admit that we all get a certain feeling in our stomach and that we hope those flowers land in front of us. Go ahead and send them on the Friday before...she can get more glory when she carries them out to the car for the whole world to see. If she's lucky enough...she may have to wait to cross at a stop light and even give the passers by the chance to see that she is indeed... adored.
This is NOT the time to drop by the corner market for the cellophane wrapped spring bouquet that has already "sprung." You have to bite the bullet on this one and put some real effort into it to get the proper response. Having said that.... let me add that there are some great floral options available if you decide to pick up something on your own to bring home to the missus. Many of the large grocery chains have a great selection of many different flowers and with the right touch, any proper suitor can pull this off. First of all, buy the kind of flowers your sweetie likes. Don't buy roses just because they're everywhere this time of year. I used to not be such a big fan of roses...seemed overpriced and didn't last very a long if you asked me, but since I've been growing them in my home garden for a few years I have truly learned to appreciate just how beautiful and special they are. Just make sure you put some thought into it. Any flowers you give her are going to say more to her than any words you could ever come up with. Having said that.....NOT getting her flowers will also say more to her than you could ever apologize for!! If your girl likes sunflowers, then make it sunflowers. If it's carnations or daisies well, you get the picture. You can't go wrong with a beautiful spring bouquet. This time of year we are all looking for some signs of spring. The love potion here is the thought you put into it. If you purchase them yourself, put the flowers in a pretty vase (not one from home this is the time to spring for a new one) and tie a little bow or some pretty raffia around it to spruce it up a little. You could also wrap the flowers in floral paper and give them that "Florist Bought" look. There's really nothing wrong with taking flowers to your special valentine, but really if your valentine works with other valentines...delivery is a BIG plus. It'll pay off big time on the long run!! Chocolate and lots of it, a nice romantic card and maybe a cutsie teddy bear for those girls who still like their "toys." Teddy bears aren't really my thing....now my "Toys" are more geared for the big girls...if you know what I mean. Those are fun to get, too!!
Have fun, this is the time we all get the chance to be silly in love and say and do goofy things. Most of all, turn on the romantic in you and let the love of your life know how very much she (or he) is loved. comfortcook@gmail.com
