Were YOU ONE of them?
It was estimated that 1 out of 2 people planned to celebrate
y e s t e r d a y
but today’s when you can cash in
on all of the
s p e c i a l s. . .
reports that 54.8%
did in fact celebrate Valentine’s Day. . .
$19.7 Ba-ba-ba-B I L L I O N was spent. . .
$4.5 Billion was spent just in jewelry. . .
$147.00 was the average amount each person spent. . .
25-34 year old’s spend the most on this day for Lovers. . .
Now about those day,
possibly two week late
s p e c i a l s. . .
Here’s something kind of
j u i c y and
s p e c i a l:
I like it dirty !
R E A L
real. . .very, very r e a l
d i r t y
It’s out there. . .
I like a love that shows up filthy
and intends on getting muddier/dirtier
by the very moment. . .
Don’t get me wrong,
I love the Hallmark,
Hollywood kind of love. . .
Our kids will bet every time who will cry first,
mom or dad,
when you put the ‘chick-flick’ on. . .
and to be honest,
they’ve not lost a whole lot of money
betting on M E. . .
B A M. . .
I’ll let the tears go,
save your tissues,
let those tears race down my face
to see which hits the beard first.
I don’t care!
BUT. . .
that’s not the kind of Dirty,
pot-holed kind of love
I’m talking about. . .
I’m talking about the kind of love
that shows up filthy dirty,
holes in the pants,
gloves crusted in dried dirt,
hat matted with sweat and mud,
shoes with more
‘H O L E T H A N S O L E’
and zipperless coats that don’t hold the heat
and invite a cold that makes the heart shiver
more than a regular beat. . .
THAT KIND OF LOVE
wont’ get you a movie part
or probably even noticed
but it WILL get you remembered. . .
Want to have the most perfect of Valentine’s Days?
S K I P I T !
S K I P I T!
Be more concerned about February 15
or the 28th or even March 14. . .
that’s the Love that’ll matter the most. . .
Love’s a dirty,
that will jar you
when you least expect it
on a day that has no calendar page assigned to it. . .
T H A T ‘ S T H E G O O D N E W S !
Love doesn’t have to be flowers,
a box of chocolates,
a long look that’ll knock you to your knees,
a kiss that will outlast the ravages of dementia. . .
Love doesn’t have to be perfect
t o b e l o v e !
Love just moves into the most unlikely neighborhoods
when everyone else boards up and moves away. . .
Don’t let the imperfect,
love stop you
from not only doing what your heart does best,
but what another’s needs the most!
May your Love be a V E R B. . .
and never a Noun!
Now go jump in a mud puddle!
