What Goes Around
Happy Valentine's Day!
Oh sure, I could do a big, mushy post on Valentine's Day, because that's what is appropriate, right?
No, today I am going to address another 'special day' that is just around the corner. A few years ago (probably four? I don't know for sure) one of my discussion board friends got an email from her husband declaring a certain day in March (I think it was the 21st, but...) as "Steak and BJ Day." He felt this was a very good idea, and thought he would share it with his wife, who found it hilarious and shared it with the discussion board.
Now, this is the baffling part. Almost all the women on our discussion boards promptly got behind this event, and informed our men that a new holiday was in the works. When I mentioned it to my hubs, he grinned from ear to ear, because, well, you know.
I have seen several people claiming to be the creators of this 'day' so I don't know where it really started, or when it is 'official' but I do know that S&BJ Day is tied to Valentine's Day...you mess up on Valentine's Day, your wife will be able to taunt you with the lack of steak when S&BJ Day rolls around.
My husband, of course, has done his part to spread the gospel. One of his friends said "Isn't that a Thursday?"
"So? Perfectly good day for steak," said my man.
Last year, my hubs blew Valentine's Day in such a grandiose way that I marched to the calendar and put a skull and crossbones on the appointed date, just so he didn't have any illusions. I'm not really coy and subtle about those kind of things.
I am still very ill, and honestly could care less about wine, dinner, chocolate or romance right now. We'll see what he comes up with, though, because I do remember telling him that if he blew it two years in a row, "his" holiday goes on permanent hiatus.
