The Day After Valentines
The city has been caked in red with lots of balloons & roses to liven up all the restaurants.
Men crying foul because his date ordered fries, chicken burger & finished up with a chocolate brownie and caramel. Of course, she’s petite but she eats like a rabbit.
Likewise, rose vendors have hustled through the day & all the extra coins are making their pockets heavy.
While, every love song has been playing on loop at your favourite radio station & you’re tired of hearing John Legends’ voice.
Definitely, Facebook is filled with ‘I can’t believe he did it,’ ‘my bae is better than yours,’ ‘love conquers all,’ or ‘love is for birds.’
Whereas, your man has gone underground then you’re plucking off your red press-on nails as you breathe fire. If he did everything right, then, you’d be walking on sunshine.
Here are a few phrases, he might tell you and how to decode them.
a) It’s just a day I don’t know why you’re turning it into such a big deal. Since, you’re a not a big deal to me, I want you to drop this right now.
b) I’m busy till next week. I want to be alone. It’s not even a real holiday.
c) My phone died. Furthermore, I have limited imagination and don’t feel like making up excuses about missing Valentines.
d) Why can’t you treat me instead? Si life is all about equality nowadays. Similarly, I’m trying to push your buttons.
e) Ati a gift… I’ll give you the gift that never ends. Of course, I’ll confuse you with sex so you can leave me alone.
f) I know what you like & I wanna treat you right. Definitely, it’s going to be an awesome day.
g) You’re not really putting everything into one day. I thought that you weren’t like the other girls. Naturally, I’m trying to guilt into you giving me a pass on Valentines.
h) Why waste money on such silly things? In fact, I’m super broke & well I can’t really eat flowers so why waste money on that.
i) Is it a real day? Si i celebrate you every day. Finally, I wish you could stop bothering me with this nonsense.
