Man Etiquette on Valentines Day 2011 - It Begins on Friday Over the Counter Etiquette

Over the Counter Etiquette
by Harold Almon  baesoe.com
There is to be: Flowers: who is she going to show her bouquet to? And ..gush about you to? (No it does not have to be a dozen. It can be a single red rose, following the ones you have given on random Tuesday mornings. She will tell them so.)

There may be chocolates. Who is she going to share her them with –? (Folks at the office.)

There is to be a card that on the outside says, “From Your Valentine:” or “For my Valentine.” On the inside it can say, “ I….. You. Honor, Appreciate, Thank, Crave, and Love. - Insert word at will. I do." If you want someone new to be your Valentine your card might read, “If I declare war on you, would that help you capture me?”

Etiquette: the card is to go inside an envelope:front facing to the back.

At the door – Balloons with a note that says, “Love lives within.” A bubble bath: if she never takes it. A movie rental: This night: something she woul pick.

A note, it could say, “You should be sleepy. I have loved you all day while you were away.”

Sunday Feb 14 -This time you get to wake up early. Breakfast in bed. This time, there is time. The menu: Juice and something sparkling, it can be in the juice, Croissants, Cream Cheese and fruit with berries and Cr̬me, Рon a tray. Oh yes and coffee, French Vanilla. Рand chocolate chips.

A menu card may list the courses for her. A rose is to go in a bud vase or to be lain across the tray: Etiquette: A tray for someone is to have a place mat on it - It can be made of paper, ( like at Micky Ds.)

There is to be time to sleep in. – to cuddle outside of the bed, - and to take that walk ‘cause you promised.

There is dinner to be ordered in (the restaurant will need the seats, or a rest from Friday and Saturday.) It can be a picnic on the floor in front of the TV: I would say fireplace,- and maybe, but this too is a movie rental night.

Candles: Candle wicks are to be pre-lit, put out, and then ready to be lit again. Here you will need another rose for her place setting and another menu card (Sign this one at the end of the night.) For now, establish a cover: a place setting for one. Then make another. – Next to each place setting you may place a piece of chocolate.

Food: Your caterer can be a local restaurant or grocery store. It can be a Big… Served on a plate. Cut in half. There is to be something to drink with that. Blanc de Blanc, or it can be "Virgin."

There is to be dessert: A Milk shake with White Chocolate & Raspberries, in a glass & Coffee, in a cup: & Cherry almond Biscotti. You get my drift.

There is to be rose pedals placed inside the pillow, so that when laundry is done, the day is remembered. There is to be a mint- what’s next goes best without bad breath…

There is to be a gift: something stuffed or jewelry; something that can be kept forever.

And there is to be sleep…“You should sleep well tonight. I have loved you all day long.” This year Valentines Day is on Monday, - Yes you still have to go to work; - take the cell. – Call someone. It is almost Valentines morning.

For My Valentine:

I would defy law, and risk death
for the previlege of marrying you again.
