While I strongly believe in love, I always found Valentine's Day to be a foo-foo holiday, one that materialism and marketing play much too big a role. Truth be told, Mike and I celebrate it, but we use it more for a date excuse than anything else. That and I demand a new stuffed animal every year.
It started out with the cheesy gorilla holding heart. Monkey for your love? something like that. I do some heavy tossing and turning, with high kicks, in my sleep. The Gorilla only lasted so long.
Next came a bean-bag style M&M guy. Cute as he may be, you just can't cuddle something stuffed with bean pellets. (Noted?)
Most recently, Dangles, the softest, most cuddly monkey joined the crew. And will never. be. replaced.
For those of you reading carefully: Yes. I do sleep with a stuffed animal.
That share? Is true, deep love.
Thank you readers, I love you!
Happy Valentine's Day!
I hope you find something/someone to cuddle up with tonight!
