Err...The Valentine Blues!

I wasn't going to do a written post today because I didn't want to get in the way of my "CELEBRITY GUEST POST" for today by my actor, director friend, JOHN NJAMAH...(Please click the CGP page to read his thoughts) ...but in the spirit of St. Valentines day (which I actually forgot was even today, thanks to my baby sis for reminding me that I'm either too old, too boring or just not good enough a woman for any man to change my views about the world's most popular 'event'...VALENTINES DAY)

Ha! Don't tell me you don't know Valentines day is an EVENT. An emotional magnificent, money-sucking spectacle. Ask them 'Bros' na (as in warri pidgin, not yankee phonetics o) you know...dem 'bobos' they will tell you everrrry...money, gifts, scopings, err, the works... is someone knocking at the door?...Let's not forget the 'hearts' that will be broken all over the floor.

As for me I have long consoled myself that its okay to be the 'side boo'...err...All is well...haven't you heard "No Expectations, No Disappointments...". How can you break my heart, when I've already used my own small dainty hands to do so on your behalf?. So for any man who's rehearsing the 'RAP' he wants to give me as 'excuse'. My dear, my 'blues' is on replay..."Its not right...but its okay...I'm gonna make it anyway...La la la"...Thanks Aunty Whitney Houston, you have left me with beautiful musical solace. I find this song very relevant today. Lol.

Even though today is a day to give back to the society, show appreciation to loved ones, and love to the needy or just anyone in need...I'm grateful to those who have hijacked the real meaning of valentines day. They have given people in 'committed' relationships one SINGULAR event to look forward to every year, those in 'complicated' relationships a day to be very wary of...and the 'lonely' ones like me, a day to simply DREAD. And yes, I have always dreaded valentines day, maybe something spectacular is waiting to happen? I'm yet to know, but I must admit I love SURPRISES...

So whilst some of you will be mushy, cooing, snuggling, spooning, kissing and oh...SCREAMING, I'll be reading my audition script, hoping my son will steal five minutes away from Disney Junior to notice me...or I can try console myself with the 'auto reply'... (yes my little toddler is on auto reply...he sometimes, repeats everything anyone says). So I will just say "Ray, I Love You"...And pretend I'm surprised, when he says "I Love You Too, Mummy". Hahahah. Let me know how you're spending your own valentines day... I'm dying to read! Well, I'm on my way to an audition. Wish me luck! And oh don't forget to hit the share button under this post.

Have An Amazing Valentine's Friday Lovelies. I love you... Muah!!!
