Valentine's Day As It Should Be: Condensed Into 20 Minutes

After the folks at Delta airlines decided at 10 p.m. that they might want to rustle up a couple pilots for the 8:30 p.m. flight I was sitting on on the Atlanta jetway, I was finally on my way home. So I touched down shortly before midnight, grabbed my luggage and, exhausted, hopped into the Significant Other's truck. There were a dozen pink roses inside. At home, I handed over the signed copy of "The Great Santini" I'd picked up for him in South Carolina recently, and he passed off a box of delicious chocolates. Bingo bango, done and done. Though we've set the bar pretty high with Valentine's Day, I think we can knock Easter down to five minutes.

What the hell! The title of this post leads me to believe this had something to do with sex. Can we say false advertising?

As if! This is the blog of a lady, not a strumpet.

I-66--Were it not for concern about my girlish figure I could eat Cadbury eggs like it's my job.

My boyfriend and I did the short and sweet gift exchange as well. Too bad it took me about the same amount of time to eat the whole box of Godiva.

I still think Easter (or Passover) deserves at least 7 minutes. :)

She didn't tell you the real reason she was "delayed" in Atlanta.

Belle--All right, seven minutes, but only because it's not a fake holiday, what with the resurrection of Christ and all. (Or the uh, passing over, depending on your point of view.)

Phil--I read that comment and thought "I'm not sure what he mea--AHAHAHAHA!"
OK, seriously, say you're kidding or I'm going to have to sleep on the couch tonight.
