A Single Valentine
Yes, I'll admit it. I bought myself a box of assorted See's Candies for Valentine's Day. Maybe next year I'll have the courage to go all out and buy a heart-shaped box. Excuse me while I go sharpen that knife to plunge into my chest.
It was an award winning performance. Gliding up to the counter, a demure smile for the friendly salesman, let him think I wasn't just buying for myself. "Yes, I'd like a one-pound assorted box please. Let's start with four toffee-ettes that's mine, I mean, OUR favorite." Me, myself and I "One chocolate almond, peanut, caramel...is that a walnut sqaure? Yes, we likes those." Must have the precious "Thank you, it's been years since we've enjoyed one of your boxes of delicious chocolate." Nasty, selfish, bachelors, we hates them!
Just doing my part to keep our economy afloat. After all, if it weren't for single women like me, forced to buy candy for herself on Valentine's Day, old fashioned confectioners like See's Candies would be out of business.
After all, this is the day to celebrate a holiday dedicated to our true loves and mine happens to be chocolate and nuts- just not the Josh Powell kind!
Now to curl up under my old quilt, watch season three of "The Mentalist" and let myself fall quite comfortably into the arms of Simon Baker while stuffing my face with candy. I'll have a LOTR trilogy marathon next week. Happy Valentine's Day!
