I ignore it. I ignore it every year, as it is the day of love. I don’t want to get into a fight on this day! But, the man isn’t that bad! I clearly remember, one V Day, aeons ago, when I had complained for the umpteenth time how unromantic he was, he got me a unique gift to lift my mood – a packet of my favourite banana chips! Aww, that was so sweet of him! Ah! Those were the good old days…
However, I have been blessed with some amazing people in my life, who do know how to shower me with love. My parents and my close friends, who mean the world to me, are the ones whose response bowls me over. After wishing the hubby, I wish all of these darlings, express my love and gratitude for everything they do for me, for being my support system, and for tolerating me patiently. And, the love I get in return takes my breath away!
I do agree with hubby about why there should be just one day to express our love; why mustn’t we do it all round the year? But, hubby, if I keep expressing my love to you, or to ‘my’ people every second day, won’t you guys get worried and start thinking that a counsellor is the need of the hour? Or, worst, you might start pulling your hair (or mine!) in frustration!
Therefore, the Valentine’s Day, to celebrate love and raise a toast to one of the gentlest emotions we have been blessed with! So, here’s looking forward to a day full of love and laughter, and loads of happiness all around. Leave behind the grudges and the sourness. Pick up one of those ‘hearty’ balloons and make someone’s day special!
Ahem, and about that special romantic gift that I yearn for –psst! I plan on finding a boy friend for myself, what say?
