Who likes Valentine's Day?

Yeah, it's a bullshit holiday. It's stupid. Moronic. A product of Madison Avenue and the greeting card, candy, and floral industries.

Of course, I got Mrs. Fab something. I'm not stupid, ya know.

I've been thinking about this. You know, love is not about just showing it on Valentine's Day. It's not about the occasional grand gesture. What is it about?


It's about how the first person taking a shower always leaves a towel out for the other.

It's about how I always make sure I put the toilet seat down after I'm through.

It's about how, after she's worked late into the night and finally comes home, I meet her at the door with a big hug.


It's about how she takes the foil off the new mustard even though she doesn't like mustard, but knows I do so she does it for my convenience.

It's about how whenever I'm traveling I always make sure I call her at 7:15 so I wake her up instead of the alarm clock.

It's about how if I go to bed before she does (which is often) she prewarms the electric blanket so I don't have to get into a cold bed.

It's about how she always calls in and fills my prescriptions to save me the trip, because the pharmacy is closer to her work than mine.

It's about the little things.

I dissed Valentines Day today....but I think this has been one of the best Valentines Day posts I've read today!!! And you're SO right...it's the little things that count, not the grand gestures (although every once in a blue moon a grand gesture sure doesn't suck!)

Just sayin'....:)

LMAO at 'rash went away'!

You're absolutely right. It's about the everyday stuff and not just showing that love and affection one day a year.

Awww and she left you a message, too!

Yep. You've got that right. And that's why they call you Mr. Fabulous...

I'll join the others and say that is so damn sweet!

Oh, and "doggy style" wins bonus points around here. Just an FYI.

Blogger CP said...

While "Doggy Style" might win big points around your house, the "Not In My Eye" wins huge points around here.

Mr. CP is a great lover with bad aim. *LOL*

Faboo, no wonder she loves you so muchly. *waves hello to the Mrs.*

CP.

It's always the little things that make up the bigger things. And for those that don't have a significant other, Valentines day is "Single Awarness Day". Not that I'm bitter or anything.....:-)

That's a great post that gets to the heart of it. It's not alwyas the grand romantic gestures, but the little, everyday things that make life together so wonderful.

Ahhh, isn't that cute she fills your Viagra prescription and turns on the electric blanket. Urp! Oh excuse me. I forgot to take my hairball medicine. It wouldn't be Valentines day without some catty bitch making some nasty remark now would it?
