Valentine’s Day on Another Day

20200215_204511I didn’t celebrate Valentine’s Day on Valentine’s Day. There just seems to be too much going on, or too much pressure created by marketing people. Last year, I was in Costa Rica on Valentines Day and I didn’t see anything like the commercial holiday I see here.

Rather than succumb, I wanted to wait for Saturday to have a quiet moment with my Valentine and with some pizza and a movie. Call it simple.  Call it boring.  Call it whatever you want.  For me it was Today’s Perfect Moment.

Too often there is a way everyone expects things to be done. What you should understand is that I am an Aquarian through and through.  That means there is also the way I want things done, and most often there are going to be different.  Today I wanted it done this way.

Happy Valentines Day Sarah.

Honorable Mention

A beautiful Lamborghini passed me while driving to get the pizza.  That exotic breed is unlikely to be seen in these parts during Winter.  It revved its engine, but never had the chance to race off into the distance.

  1. The tissue box nearby is what I would do too. 🙂

    I hope you enjoyed your evening.

    My Dad is Aquarian too and he definitely does things different and not what is expected by others! I guess I need to be a bit more like that.

    Awesome post, man. For us, tonight, it’s grilled cheese (with bacon, of course), soup, a movie and some popcorn. Good times, brother.
