VALENTINE RAMBLINGS



Valentine day was here and it’s gone, yea, neatly tucked away till 2016. How did you spend your Valentine’s Day? I know there are different categories of people concerning Val celebrations.

Those who don’t believe in it, these are the tough skinned, my-love-sees clearly, I-am-never-in-a-maze kind of persons. They are not the lovey-dovey, mushy personalities. They most often don’t believe in special dates like anniversaries and may often forget birthdays and special events. To them, they can celebrate love whenever, wherever and however without making a fuss about it. I want to believe they are mostly the focused, clear headed, I see beyond the facade kind of persons.

Those who don’t believe in it because they don’t have anyone to spend the day with are those who over the years have had their hearts broken, smashed and left in tatters. They are “relationship-less” and therefore claim not to believe in the essence of Valentine’s Day. This category of persons will switch sides once they find themselves dating again. They are like the weather; they see the sunny side of life when all is looking rosy and green.

Those of who are unrepentant “lovaholics” and celebrate it unhindered, I fall under this category. We are the advocates of love; we don’t have a reason to celebrate. We just love having gifts and sharing gifts. Also, I might add that under this category are the “follow-follow”, they don’t understand what the day is all about but will rather be caught dead not going with the flow.

And lastly those who are forced to celebrate it (Hubby falls under this category). This category of persons is arm twisted; blackmailed and threatened to celebrate Valentine’s Day. To them it is just a craze and farce by commercial vendors to get people to spend money by ascribing a special status to a day.  

I remember one time in the office that a delivery man brought roses, cake and chocolates to  one of my colleagues...when the delivery man came to the office and asked of her, she was “awwwing” and “haaaaaing”, everyone was peeping wondering where the roses, cake and chocolate came from. Babes begin to elongate their neck to read the tags and know who the mystery man was, as per we all knew she was “boyfriend–less” at this time.  Lo and behold, the florist must have made a mistake because they used her name as the sender and receiver of the roses...oh my days, she was taunted and I am sure she was embarrassed, I was ashamed on her behalf....who in this day and age still does sh*t like this, and if you must do, the watch word is don’t be caught. That’s the day I know babes are not smiling at all.

I don’t think I want to be the babe without a gift for valentine but it has happened to me before, though we ended up having dinner later in the day. Will I go to the extreme and send a gift to myself...nope....will I mope.....I don’t think so, I am hyper like that, I have so much positive energy at times, it scares me as well.....just the same way that I can flip the coin at a short notice. I got the two extremes of introvert and extrovert personality.

Truth be told, I am not so crazy about Valentine celebration as I was some years ago, so I guess maybe Hubby’s prayers might work and I will outgrow it ....my Val celebration was low key when compared with previous years...no particular reason sha, Victoria island traffic was #doromegasuperstar.....and all those “small- small” children like Duru Aldophus Jnr *winks* just filled all the malls and fast food joints.  Shopping for groceries or any other item that day was so tasking, I am thinking of starting a campaign to restricting Valentine’s celebration to just the married and mature adults...kilode...because you want to buy plastic flower and Ferrero Rocher chocolate, you won’t let a whole Auntie Sykik see road again..... hehehehe..........there’s no respect again. Abeg, raise your hand if you support my advocacy, lol...Sykik is a confirmed “agbaya”.

I need to outgrow this Valentine fever because Hubby has jokingly said he hopes when I am old and grey and with no teeth to chop chocolate again, he will rest from Valentine’s Day celebration, (kai, to imagine that such a day will come) and maybe he will be giving me corned beef instead. I had to remind him that he’s some years older, so it’s reassuring that he will be old , grey and without teeth before me...I won’t even feed him with corned beef...I will five him grounded sardine...hehehehe.....old age Valentine love go sweet oh

  4. Like seriously, ferrero rocher chocolate? Isn't that what some people use to play ball in their house?

    As for that lady, I don't feel for her o. Her objective was to deceive colleagues, but it backfired. Must we follow trend in order to feel relevant?

By all standards yeah, You and Toin are like my most ghen ghen blogs ever, and i feel humbled to be mentioned on ya blog toh suree.. and the crowd goess oooossssshhhheey! **Please pass me a hanker chief.. Nah.. Pass me a towel plus some serviets sef.. This is a very emotional moment for me.. I feel like I won an Oscar.. **Stands up from faint. **Adjusts Shokoto..

I wanna dedicate it to www.janylbenylshares.com as mama lit the match that set my confusions on fire.,. Janyl rocks aswear.

    Wait she sent her self roses and was Awwing on top?! Nawa oh! the world is coming to an end oh!.. heheheheh I am dead, now thats Epic.. Aha! WHO does that?! Why didnt she just take herself to Coral blue, snap food even their bread and join, and upload with #Foodie hashtag on IGm, thats less embarassing nah.. the lord is her muscle ni oh! :( Inshort nawa oh! thats a clear case of being 'Self Toasted'.. Bet Bubba, Gist full this ya office eh! Aha!! 1 day 1 gist.. lmao.. Can i apply?! **Deep sigh.. i see myself as a helpless Romantic.. falling in and out of love like it is a way of life.. I guess its cause while so many wait to first be loved, before choosing to love, I love with my all regardless of if I am loved back or not.. And i think that should be the way of life.. Why?! I dont really know, but maybe its cause in my 23 years 3 months and 8 days of existence, life has taught me that waiting to be loved never pays, so my prescription is to throw in all the dice and love like love is all that is needed to live, cause in all sincerity yeah, we dunno how much time we have got.. So lets dance like no one is watching.. And the crowd goes Yyyyeeeaaaahh mehn! Cheers Bubba.. You always leave me in stitches Mzz Sykik, Always.. You are AMAZING. This was an exciting read, and i just cannot stop smiling..

  6. Happy new year Sykik's. You see that your colleague needs deliverance, Mfm type o. First of all, when did valentine become about oppressing others? I bet even if she had a boyfriend and he was broke to send presents, she will still go ahead and buy herself presents under the pretense that he did.

    She seriously made a full of herself

  10. **drops on knees without folding my only blue pair of jean. Dear Jehova Omni-Blogger, please help us and ping Mzz Sykiks heart to remind her that some of us are coming to her blog at midnight cause we miss her... To let her know we miss her hillariousness and ghen ghenness and cant wait for her to update, to let her know we love her by default, and above all, please remind her that valentine e haf pass.. Eshe Padre. **stands up from praying pose... **and cleans lone tear.

  11. Lool...I guess everyone loves to feel loved..but u can only feel loved by loving yourself first. A self-treat would have done it all but I guess she needed to experience the feeling of being loved without truely loving herself.
