After putting the kids to bed, I went to the grocery store. The temperature finally rose into double digits and it actually felt a little warm! (Still below freezing. After a couple of weeks of subzero temps and single digits, it’s amazing how it would feel warm…)
The greeting cards, gift wraps, and floral department is right near the entrance of the 24-hr grocery chain. There were at least 8 men browsing in the vicinity for last-minute Valentine gifts. Ironically, I didn’t see any women there.
Is it because women aren’t celebrating or giving their sweetheart gifts? Or are women inherently better planners and have already finished wrapping the presents days ago? Maybe women don’t shop for Valentine gifts at grocery stores? I mean, let’s face it, what kinda thing would a guy want from a grocery store.
“Here love, this is what I got for ya. I’m so glad you’re mine,” as she hands the bulky package over.
“Ooooh beer, and it’s my favorite kind! You’re the best.” Says he as he whips out a huge bouquet of flowers from behind his back, planting a kiss on her lips.
Happy Valentine’s Day everyone. Chocolates on the house.
