Buy me Love...

A bouquet of perfumed roses, box of chocolates, a bottle of red wine or...aww a gold pendant or a romantic dinner...how did your valentine make it a special day for you? For me, it was just another Saturday except that I spent more hours at office. Ah no, not by choice but because I...ohk I had nothing better to do anyway. But I did go for a nice Saturday (not valentine's day) lunch with colleagues. Good food, good company...good day. No gifts, no valentine, no lovey dovey lunch...yet a good day.

Do I hear 'loser'? Read on...

As we enjoyed our weekend lunch, I overheard this cute couple talking:

He: Your eyes are like stars which scatter light...
Your divine beauty makes many a men fight.
Would you be my Valentine and accept me?

She : Your proposal will be thought after I see how you treat me.

(gives her a big greeting card)

She: Oh my god! This is a lovely card... I wish to believe it's as big as your heart...

He: I love you a lot my beautiful doll

She: That's ok...but won't we go to a shopping mall?

He (holding her hand): Why, this place is nice (and cosy)..let's spend some time here...

She: But I want those pearls, I saw in a shop there...

He: Okay before that how about a V-day kiss and a hug?

(...and the conversation contd.)

I am not anti-V-Day but just amused with commercialization of love. Balloons-adorned streets, roses everywhere, special offers at coffee shops make celebration of love for some and depress others who call it 'singles awareness day'! Not sure about love (don't believe in it much anyway) but ones who really celebrate are florists, jewelers, archies', et al. What do you say?

correct !!! you are absolutely correct. the Laundry shop near my place who for the rest of the year is just a simple laundry man suddenly turns into an extravagant and decorative florist wearing a nice suit and tie.

but still love happens and the commercialization happens only with the people who are not patient and are desperately seeking love , no matter where it comes from. They are the actual Loser.

Yeah, true......coz if it's really love that people want to seek on Valentine's Day then there's anyways no special day needed. Why give a chance to others to commercialise!
