February is a known as the month of love, which derives from everyone’s favorite holiday (sarcasm) Valentine’s Day. Sparked by commercials and ads filled with diamond and gold jewelry, and flowers and candy. And don’t you dare forget that Hallmark card with all the mushy love verses on it.
Women love this.
Men hate it.
Sorry, but we do. There is so much pressure to make this day just perfect for her. Should I send her flowers, or would she like jewelry? Should I make dinner for her or should I take her out? Funny card? Romantic card? Would buying her a new set of pots and pans offend her? See what I mean? It’s like no matter what I do, she won’t like what I buy for her…It is so complicated anymore.
I once put money in a card for my wife. I thought it was a great idea.…she can buy what she wants, right? Oh no, that didn’t work out for me. I was accused of being insensitive! Why didn’t I choose something for her that meant something? Are you kidding me? If I did that, we’d have pizza for dinner, we would head to Jill’s for some cold ones with hot, naked women dancing for us and then we’d go home and get down and dirty. That to me is the perfect valentines evening. And will never happen.
Speaking of getting down and dirty, Feb 21st and 22nd is one of my favorite times of the year. It’s Tough Man time!!! Where else can you watch men and women fight, drink beer, and watch scantily clad women strut around in the ring?? And once it ends, you take your ticket stub to Jill’s and get in FREE …there, the party continues with more beer and NAKED women. It’s the perfect evening of fights, beer and women.
