Do you remember being in middle school and you hoped for someone to ask you the big question… “Will you be my Valentine”?
It seems like yesterday when I think about my very first Valentine. I was in 7th grade, and an 8th-grade boy asked me the big question. You couldn’t tell me I wasn’t the coolest kid on the planet. That was until he dumped me at our dance because I wouldn’t kiss him.
I thought, “you have to be kidding me”!
Do you want my precious lips to touch your crusty lips? It’s going to be a no for me, sir.
So there I was, dumped.
After that, I vowed to write off Valentine’s Day. And I did just that, but then in 8th-grade, my new heartthrob asked me to be his Valentine, and with a heavy heart, I SCREAMED YES! So I guess my heart wasn’t that heavy after all.
I didn’t want to be the only one in my friend group without cheap, nasty chocolates and a flimsy $2.00 flower. Which, by the way, was going straight into the trash.
When I reached High School, Valentine’s Day wasn’t as big of a deal as it was in middle school. Therefore the pressure was off, and I didn’t have to fake like I was sweet and friendly to get cheap candy. My dad always bought me an expensive box of chocolates, which was good enough for me.
When I met my Husband, he always showered me with gifts and would take me to beautiful restaurants for Valentine’s Day. Which is nice, but my 13-year-old brought it to my attention that she hasn’t heard him ask me to be his Valentine since she’s been born.
Now some of you might be thinking, “well, you can ask him. Well, hush your mouth; I like to be chased, kind sir.
So you know, when he came home from work that day, I said to him, (JOKINGLY OF COURSE) “Did you know that it’s been years since you asked me to be your Valentine?
My Husband: (with a serious face) Well, I never thought about it; I just assumed I wouldn’t have to ask anymore after all these years (22 years of marriage and three kids).
Me: Well, you thought wrong, mister; I need to be asked ASAP.
The next day (YESTERDAY), Mr. Valentine arrived with a cute little arrangement and a delivery from my favorite chocolate store. Unfortunately, we can only get these particular chocolates from another state. After he handed me the goodies, he popped the big question; WILL YOU BE MY VALENTINE?
I replied; I’ll think about it!
Happy Valentine’s Day, My Beautiful People.
