Day 37 – Sales

Today I was in the mall and I couldn’t help but to notice all the sales.  Can someone explain to me why there’s end of winter sales going on when winter is right outside my door- everyday for the past month AND will continue to be until the end of March?!?! Did they miss the groundhogs’ memo??  Plus Im not going to San Juan anytime soon therefore I don’t need shorts, tshirts or a bathing suit right now.  I definitely do not need sunblock, sandals or flips. Wth?   

I also saw all kinds of Valentines Day sales.  Ok.. here’s a few gripes about that:
(1) I would be deeply offended if my husband only showed his affections for me on the day (just 1) that they rest of the world has set aside for doing so and,
(2) If he does decide to buy into the commercialism of Valentine’s Day he better not be a cheap-ass and buy me a discounted gift. Hahahaha Nobody wants to see an almost peeled 40% off sticker on the bottom of their box of chocolates.  Please don’t take me the wrong way, I’m in no way trying to say I would be ungrateful for a discounted gift- I am the biggest penny pincher ever, but if I’m going to get a gift on a holiday that the world has dictated as a day for sweethearts to shown their love for one another, I better be worth full price.. that’s all I’m saying.  haha IM KIDDING!!!

A lot of people get their feelings hurt on Valentine’s Day because (1) the dont have a “Valentine,” or (2) they expect expensive flowers, Godiva chocolates and the Melting Pot for dinner and instead they get discounted chocolate and a stupid stuffed bear from CVS. 
If I were a dude, I’d totally breakup with my girlfriend before Valentine’s Day so I didn’t have to but her stuff- hahahaha Well…that’s because Valentine’s Day is a crock of shit.   Roses (that smell like a funeral home) that aren’t worth $25 a dozen are jacked up to $100 and the boxes of chocolate have like only 3 good ones in them; the rest are filled with that nasty-ass raspberry cream and because it’s Valentine’s Day people will pay too much for them.   Every restaurant, including White Castle, is booked and that pisses people like me off.  What if I just wanted a burger, man?   Speaking of White Castle, are you aware that they require reservations and they put white table clothes on the tables AND hold weddings on Valentine’s Day?? Nothing says, “forever” like a bag of sliders and a Big Red pop!!   😈
In all seriousness, I’m lucky that I have a good husband who shows me all year long how much he loves me.  The best trinkets are his little love notes and a mason jar full of daisy’s…, he gives the best back rubs.   Love doesn’t have to be purchased to be shown and it can be shown often…
It needs to be shown often…
It MUST be shown often.

Then later tonight we were out looking for a new couch and there’s all these President’s Day sales. . . Why?  Obama need a couch too? President’s Day is crazy to me…  we have one President and he doesn’t need a sale to be able to afford a couch plus he’s screwed up our health insurance so much, he should just give me a damn couch after how much we had to pay out of pocket to meet our family deductible!!!  Know what else is messed up about President’s Day?  The kids are home from school.   Gee thanks Obama.
President’s Day sales…  smh..    and don’t forget to make your reservations.
