It has been so cold, that when hot coffee sloshed out of my insulated mug, while I was sliding to my truck, it formed ice crystals before it hit the sidewalk.
As cold as it is, I realize time goes so fast, before you know it, spring will be here; time when a young man's fancy turns to thoughts of love. S-o-o-o, let's talk about something creative for Valentine's Day.
I have some great ideas that will please your sweetie on February 14th:
- Go to the local 7-11 and buy a six-pack of your favorite beer to share with your spouse/significant other.
- Take her ice fishing. She has to supply the bait. Worms are good.
- Invite her to an indoor tractor pull and then take her to McDonald's for dinner. The smell of diesel fuel, the sound of roaring engines, and the taste of greasy food will really turn her on.
Did you think I was serious? It might work on some women I know, but probably not on most. Seriously, send her a floral arrangement with her birth flower as part of the bouquet. Then make reservations at a B&B (bed and breakfast) in the country for the weekend. Make sure they have a bottle of champagne and a box of her favorite chocolates on a table in your room. In addition, make reservations for dinner at a four-star restaurant in the area.
The weekend will be relaxing and enjoyable for both of you. When you get home, her flowers will be there to remind you both of the great relationship you have.
Congratulations, you just made a happy memory. Happy Valentine's Day!
