So yesterday was Valentine’s Day. I was wondering why people had balloons and flowers in their cars and why my wife was mad when we ate leftovers for dinner. It may seem like a big day now, but with the passage of time, it’s just one day among thousands. She’ll get over it.
Okay, so that’s an embellishment. No, scratch that — it’s an utter fabrication. I did remember the “holiday” and got my wife a mushy card and some roses and chocolate — got nice stuff, without spending a lot of money. Some people sure are trying to rip you off this time of year! But that’s a rant for another post. I started this post to talk about bacon. Yes, bacon and Valentine’s Day can go together. Actually, I think they should.
Supposedly red roses are all romantic, but they look good for only a few days, then they wither and die a horrible death. But what if the roses were edible and made of bacon? Would that not be the best “roses” ever???
To me, a guy, it seems like a great idea. But knowing women, it might be a turrible idea. I remember I once asked a girl (who I wasn’t dating) if she would prefer roses made of chocolate, and she was adamant that it would not be a good thing. Apparently, “someone” decided that you had to give red roses or you’re cheap and not romantic. Hence the huge price increase on roses in February. It sounds like a big conspiracy to me.
Anyway, about bacon roses, what do you think?
