so a lot of people are down and out because it’s valentines day; it’s these same people that are calling it “singles awareness day”
well that’s what i call it too, but i look for the silver lining in the day.
as i sat down with a good friend this morning for a bagel and tea, i told her that when you’re in a relationship, valentines day is only about making that one person in your life feel special. for me, being a single man it’s about making all the women in my life feel special and that someone cares about them; because frankly i do!
chivalry isn’t dead: in fact it’s very much alive. when i picked up my friend who recently became single this morning i showed up with 3 flowers from the bush outside my house and the radio on an oldies station blasting “build me up buttercup!”
why did i do this? because i know it made her day just a little bit better.
you can do the little stuff, like stealing flowers from the bushes in front of your house or that neighbor who meticulously manicures her roses; or you can go big, like leaving a flower on the door knob of every girl in the dorms that you know so they have something to wake up to on valentine's day (yes i did do this. and if you’re looking for cheap roses, costco is the place to go.)
have a happy valentine's day.singles awareness day.cupcake sandwich day or whatever the heck you want to call it.
Oh, and for the cupcake sandwich? well, this picture might explain it the best.
|cupcake sandwich (supposedly a good way to eat a cupcake on the run)|
remember, chivalry is alive. it’s just a little shy; in the form of a flower ready to be picked, or a cupcake ready to be made into a sandwich. :)
