Getting What You Deserve for Valentine's Day
So here it is, my inaugural post (doesn’t it sound grand – so official!) Just in time for Valentine’s Day! Ladies take note – for there is no other day so full of expectation and so fraught with disappointment. But don’t blame the men, the responsibility lies with us. Don’t be shy! It is better to ask for something you will love and wear than to be polite and accept a ho-hum gift. Remember – you don’t want to end up with a pen. You laugh, but trust me, it happens!
Also, a word to the gentlemen - jewelry is always better than chocolates! We want none of that nonsense of “sweets for the sweet”. And don’t just buy what you can afford. This is a sign of your undying devotion. A rule of thumb – when you start to choke, step up and buy it.
Remember ladies – it’s all about you!
