Happy Valentine's Day!!!
It's all a bit daft isn't it? Roses doubling in price overnight, husbands and boyfriends discovering that "nothing" actually meant "something" or that "nothing" actually did mean "nothing - so why on earth did you buy that?"
But I guess if you can see through all the chintz - past all the balloons, the flowers, the oversized, over-pink cards there is something quite special about having someone tell you that you actually mean something to them - and to realise that you've found someone who means something to you.
And if you're single then I reckon it's a time to realise that you are actually doing ok.
And given that you're doing ok AND you're single - I reckon it's time to treat yourself, don't you?
So here's the joke ....
A big-game hunter goes on safari with his wife and mother-in-law. One evening, while still deep in the jungle, the Mrs awoke to find her mother gone.
Rushing to her husband, she insists on them both trying to find her mother.
The hunter picks up his rifle ands with his wife close behind, starts to look for her.
In a clearing not far from the camp, they finally spot her backed up against a cliff with a huge male lion standing facing her.
The wife cries, "What are we going to do?"
"Nothing," said the husband. "The lion got himself into this mess ....."
