Fandango’s Provocative Question (10 February 2021)

Prompt image for the Fandango's Provocative Question prompt

Today’s Provocative Question, Fandango asks:

How do you feel about Valentine’s Day? Do you consider it to be a special day, one where you express your deep love and appreciation for your significant other? Or is it just a commercialized “Hallmark Holiday” where you feel pressured to spend money on cards, flowers, candy, jewelry, and/or expensive dinners in order to stay on the good side of the one you love? Either way, what, if anything, are your plans for Valentine’s Day this year?

Wow, a mouthful of a question! But not to worry, I shall make up for it with my answer.

It is pure marketing drivel. Like all other festive periods, it is designed to make us part with our cash. Simple as that.

With that in mind, what am I going to do? Hint – think Saturday and double it! We probably won’t even eat together, since she doesn’t eat carbs, and I usually don’t eat meat. She likes nothing better than a big, juicy steak, where I’m happier with something like risotto.

Seriously, you show somebody you care every day, not one day.

  1. I am firmly with you in the bah humbug camp!

    I’ve penned a rhyme about your limerick skills for tomorrow. Just want to checkout that you are okay with that before I post!
