Well… It’s almost that dreaded time of year again.
- The time when the town is painted red and hearts are all a-flutter.
- The time of starry eyes, giggles and smiles.
- Of flowers in bloom (at least at the florist….)
- The time when colorful bouquets of over-priced expressions of love appear everywhere and beautiful glittery diamonds sparkle all over tv with the reminder of how to spell the word kiss… (Which, by the way, is with a “K”…. Not a “Kay”) – for those if you not in the US, this is reference to a kind of annoying commercial!
- The time when, if you’re lucky, the toilet seat gets put down… If even for a moment, as a grand expression of love.
As your tiny hiney is spared from the splash of cold wetness in the middle of the night…. You realize that you are truly loved and that the barbarian you live with, is truly trying to be romantic by keeping your tushy dry…. even if it only lasts for one special evening!
It’s the day of St Valentines. The day that men all over the universe dread deep down to the fiber of their being. The day when they are asked… No. Not asked. Expected – to civilize themselves and do something nice for their honey.
And ladies, while we may simply adore dry tushies.. We all know that one day of a closed toilet seat does not, in fact, represent smoldering affection (for me that would come in the form of clean counters and folded laundry – but hey, I’m a simple gal!)
So, we hold these poor souls, the men in our lives, to impossible standards on this day and we make it so high pressured that they’d rather submerge themselves in syrup and lie down on hill of fire ants than try to plan the perfect….. night….gift…. gesture……
We’re a tough bunch, Ladies. You know it. I know it. And, more importantly, the men in our lives know it.
So, this Valentines Day… Why don’t you meet in the middle with a prize from a fun-filled giveaway I’m running in conjunction with FANDANGO!

Good luck and remember….take it easy on your man this V-Day. Romance generally doesn’t come easy…. and, if you happen to have a good catch, someone who’s great at grand, romantic gestures….. Thank your lucky stars that you have a dry hiney….
There are many other women patting down their derrières this very minute somewhere else the world, cursing and grumbling because they sat down too quickly in the dark!
The winner of this contest is Jessie C with comment #9. CONGRATULATIONS!!!
