For The First Time In 44 Years…

For the first time in 44 years, I have a girlfriend on Valentine's Day.

For the 44th time in 44 years, I will be alone on Valentine's Day.

But don't cry too many tears for me.  My Valentine will be arriving next Friday.

HEART-Stars I came close to having a girlfriend on Valentine's Day once, though.  I know that I've mentioned her before, but I didn't give her a cute name.  I think I'll call her, "The Teach".

The Teach and I had been dating for 6 months, and I was saving up for an engagement ring.  As we got closer to Valentine's Day, I search through catalogs for the perfect gift.  Hey, this was like, early '91.  The internet wasn't really a "thing" yet.

I decided on CHOCOLATE.

Teach got the present in the mail, and broke up with me on Feb. 6, just a week before Valentine's Day.  She claims the two things weren't connected.  To this day, I'm not sure I believe her.

CHOCOLATE-PIGYeah.  As Milton Snavely Hershey as my witness, yes, I sent her a chocolate pig.

HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!

I wonder if she's out there somewhere right now blogging about the time a boyfriend gave her a chocolate pig for Valentine's Day....

;-)

While I agree chocolate is good in all forms (even barnyard animals), Scope, maybe avoiding PIG references would have been best. Sometimes we girls a wee bit sensitive about things like that, just FYI.

*snicker*

FINALLY! I've been saying for years that they should meld two of the greatest flavors on earth in one: chocolate and pig.

Here, I see a success. Well, in the melding department, not so much the romance. Sorry about that one.

Really, I HAVE to know what you must have been thinking at that point, to pair those two together.

Wouldn't a simple I.D. bracelet have been sufficient? :) Oh, wait, that's for like 8th grade.

Well, the chocolate pig still trumps my standard gift of power tools...

I'm with Cora. Generally women do not like to be associated with a sow. Or a boar. Or for that matter, a bore.

Make every day Valentine's Day. But minus the chocolate. You don't want to turn into Mr. and Mrs. Claus.

Chocolate-covered pork rinds would've won me over but anything pig-shaped is probably not a good idea.
