Is valentines day a big deal for you or not? Me , I've never really cared for it because my birthday is just too damn close to it and it was always a shared holiday for me. I guess anybody who has a birthday close to a holiday will understand what I mean. But, for me as I got older I always resented Valentines Day. It was "Hey let's go out and celebrate V-day and your birthday together" Which really meant, lets go out and you treat me and I don't do shit for you beacuse its V-day. No that's way too strong but it gets my message accross. I usually wait till after my birthday to even think about V-day but I'm going to try to make it a little better this year for my wife. i've already bought her a nice present. I also got her some slinky lingere, but that's reall a present for myself. I got the flowers on order, and i need to get her a card. I'm going to try something new this year on the card. We men usually just walk down the aisle to get beer, lean over and just grab card off the rack. If any men here deny it, you know you are a liar, ladies. I got called out on this last year so this year I'm going to make my own card. Sweet and sentimental , I know, but also cheaper.LOL! I studied a few pointers and I'm going to put my verse here so you can critique my prose. And its going to be written by hand on nice paper, no computer print-out junk for me. Ready, here goes: "Wise men say only fools rush in, but I can't help falling in love with you. Shall I stay would it be a sin If I can't help falling in love with you." - Elvis Presley 'Candy, I can't express myself any better than what the King has already said. I've loved you since the first moment I saw you and I'm still falling in love with you today. Would you be my Valentine today, tomorrow and forever.' Well that's it. What do you ladies think about that? Did I do a good job or do I need to improve it in any way?
