Okay, guys, you seriously have had some bad Valentine’s Days. I received entries by email and on the blog. I said to my husband last night, “I don’t know how I’m going to pick the best three!”
He, in his usual charming way, said, “You made your bed…”
Oh, wait, before we get to the official entries, this was my husband’s entry:
I have one. My wife, who is wonderful btw, decided to hold a contest on her blog. The best story about valentine’s day would win a prize. Did she write about how I proposed to her or how romantic I could be at times? Nope, she wrote about yet another encounter with a strange man. Feel the love. 😛
No, he can’t win.
What he doesn’t realize is that talking about wonderful husbands is boring for other people. I’m a writer. I know these things. If I rambled on and on about how amazing and supportive my husband is, I wouldn’t have any followers at all.
Hey! I see your eyes glazing over already!
On to the entries!
Something STINKY woke me up at 2:30 a.m. today. Because it hurt to push herself up on the toilet, she wouldn’t go potty. Apparently she could only hold it so long, pulled the No. 2 out, wiped it on her bed and then tried to go back to sleep.
So that’s how the day started.
When I REALLY woke up for the day, I realized that we both have pink eye. Great right? Which would be fine if we could just hang out at home. No dice.
We had to visit the orthopaedic surgeon this afternoon who a) didn’t do anything for her but pin her sling shut and b) happened to be totally gorgeous.
Now I’m waiting for a call from the pediatrician and baking the cake she didn’t get to have yesterday.
No love story here. Just real life.
Problem: He decided to get completely wasted while he waited for us to finish eating.
When he met up with us, he smelled pretty horrible. We found our seats, and he pulled a flask out and continued to smell horrible. Finally, he snuck out for a bathroom break and got kicked out of the theater.
What I learned: being single is preferable to being left alone by a drunken man – no matter how gorgeous and charming the man 🙁
As yesterday, vote in the comments, or shoot me an email to email@example.com, or write it on a paper airplane and throw it at me, or…you get the gist. I’ll post the winner at 8pm tonight.
