Well...it's Valentine's Day...
All over, a great many people are celebrating their love for their significant others. All over women are gushing and acting surprised that there is a dozen red roses on the dining room table...even though they check the bank account on-line every day...and saw the withdrawal for the florist down the street.
All over men are racing all over town trying to find a card store that's open at 7:17a.m. Some are a little more imaginative and are in the garage frantically gluing glitter and macaroni onto paper plates.
"Whenever I get gloomy with the state of the world, I think about the arrivals gate at Heathrow Airport. General opinion's starting to make out that we live in a world of hatred and greed, but I don't see that. It seems to me that love is everywhere. Often, it's not particularly dignified or newsworthy, but it's always there - fathers and sons, mothers and daughters, husbands and wives, boyfriends, girlfriends, old friends. When the planes hit the Twin Towers, as far as I know, none of the phone calls from the people on board were messages of hate or revenge - they were all messages of love. If you look for it, I've got a sneaky feeling you'll find that love actually is all around." ~Hugh Grant, as The Prime Minister in LOVE ACTUALLY

LOVE means never having to say you're sorry.
LOVE means that if you find yourself in a situation in which you might have to say "I'm sorry" ...jewelry better be part of your strategy.
LOVE means never having to feel bad about saying "You're not going to wear those pants...are you?
LOVE means "Of course your mother can spend....a....week...with us..."
LOVE means being able to say "I bought a new scented candle for the bathroom" without prejudice.
LOVE means being able to use the word 'grumpy' when you really mean 'asshole' and the other person knows you meant 'asshole' when you said 'grumpy.'
LOVE means sometimes a back rub is just back rub...LOVE means your curled toes are cute and unique not a deformity.
LOVE means "It's not that you drive badly, honey...it's that I just really love to drive.
I know what love means and what love is.
I am a lucky man.
I have a woman at my side who is not only my wife...my lover...and my lover...she is my partner. We are in this together. I have her back and she has mine. We are there to make each other laugh and there for one another when there are tears.
It's not all smiles and laughs.
To be honest. It's honest and real...it's life.
We all know that and still...we all have that romantic image from our favorite romantic movie in head.
Not every day is The Notebook though. And that's okay.
We've all been there.
Sometimes its more The Big Chill.
Sometimes its One Flew Over The Cuckoo's Nest.
Sometimes its Die Hard With A Vengeance.
Sometimes its Jaws IV: The Revenge
I am lucky.
To find a woman who would put up with...me?
Are you kidding?
HOW DOES THAT HAPPEN?
It really is a kick in the head.
My head is still spinning...and my heart is soaring.
Every day is Valentine's Day...
Well...every day is Valentine's Day but Valentine's Day without the cards..and chocolates...and flowers...and lobster.
Sir Paul McCarthy wrote "the love you take is equal to the love you make."
Happy Valentine's Day.
And that's 'Jody' with a 'y'
