Of Mice and Man: The V-Day Disaster

Gentlemen, start your love engines. Valentine’s Day is around the corner.

Wash a load of clothes. Mop the floor. Fill her car up with gas.

Cook your baby breakfast.Tell her how good she looks in that blouse. Massage her feet.

Kiss her like you mean it. Talk about the day you met and why you would marry her again. Leave a post-it note on her pillow.

Turn off the game, look at her and listen as she recaps her day. Buy her something nice. Take her to dinner.

Just don’t do what I did about 18 years ago.

I woke up in a sweat, panicked because I’d forgotten what day it was.

A Wal-Mart was close, so I rushed in and grabbed the first two things I saw: a red towel and a stuffed mouse, holding a heart.

In a matter of minutes, I went from loving husband to heel.

Don’t be me. Be a romantic come Tuesday.

Your soulmate will appreciate it.
