Sharing My World 14-02-2022

Here is my post for Melanie’s Share Your World.

Which traditional Valentine’s Day gift would you rather receive: chocolates, flowers, or a card with a personal message?
I’d like a card with a personal message. And chocolates to seal the deal. I literally don’t have a free surface to put flowers on.

Do you like romantic movies?
Yes, if they’re also comedies, for example “There’s Something About Mary”, that kind of thing. Otherwise they’re just boring.

Is Valentine’s Day only about romantic love? Or is it a good occasion to celebrate friendship as well?
Let’s keep it to romantic love. We’ve just had Christmas with all its expense and expectations, let’s not expand yet another day out of control.

According to Wiki (font of all knowledge) St Valentine is also the patron saint of beekeepers. So let’s show some love for the keepers of our stingy little insectoid friends.

How do you deal with unwanted romantic attention?
I’ll let you know if it ever happens.

    LOL! Next year I’m sending Valentines to the bees!

    So all those cards that say “Bee Mine” with a stupid looking cartoon bee holding a heart are actually relevant! Who knew?

      That’s right! It’s like a coal mine only for bees.

    Thank you for Sharing Your World Alistair! You have made several good points…why extend the debauchery of the Christmas season with one more over commercialized day that means very little (except to bee keepers apparently. I’m all for that kind of celebration…we ought to be very kind to the bees. If they go extinct, so do we.) I’ve been amazed that only one or two responders to SYW this week admitted to being hit on by someone they didn’t invite to do so. Even me (who honestly didn’t expect it to ever happen had it happen three times (at least)). Of course that was before gravity, the years and everything… O_o It’s interesting to read that you literally have no free surfaces where you abide. I sense there’s a story behind that..? Have a great week!

      There’s a lot of knick-knacks and Star Wars Lego on everything 🙂

    Great answers 😁 I actually participated this week. 😁😁

      Thank! It took me a while but I tracked down your SYW post 🙂

    “There’s Something about Mary” is hilarious. I have never been able to keep a straight face whenever there is mention of franks & beans 😅


    • February 21, 2022 at 7:55 am

      I was laughing all the way through the first time I saw it, before knowing what was coming and all the reveals 🙂

    Chocolates over flowers, though I love flowers.

    MOL…great answers Draliman and we think that effurry day must be a 💗 day, when it comes from the 💗 and not for commercial purposes😺Pawkisses for a Happy Day🐾😽💞


    • February 25, 2022 at 7:16 am

      That would make every day a lovely day 🙂

    I love flowers, but I like them when they are growing better than when they are cut. Not so much a surface issue as a “are they dying yet” issue. I’m not a fan of “greeting card holidays,” of which I think this is the ultimate one. I’m glad to discover I’m not alone.

      Definitely not alone on both points.

    Have you seen the movie Crazy Stupid Love? I also don’t like “pure” romantic movies, but that’s a really funny one.
