Valentine's Day Delivery

I've been planning to blog about baseball, but this wasn't what I had in mind originally. I planned to rant and rave about the outrageous money that owners pay the players and how we need a salary cap in MLB.

But, I digress.

I am on the Texas Rangers email newsletter list. Today, I got a promotional email about having the Rangers mascot, Captain, deliver your Valentine gift to your sweetie for a mere $150. The following conversation occurred:

AoM: Hey honey, look here. You can have Captain deliver my Valentine's Day present for $150.
AoD: *with a smile on his face* I'm not spending $150 on the gift, why would I spend it on Captain delivering it. *after a brief pause* If my Lotto ticket hits on Wednesday, I promise I'll have Captain deliver your Valentine.

Fair enough. We're not all that big on Valentine's Day around here. Our big plans for the day of love: take the kids to a UNT men's basketball game. Now, that is how AoD knows he married well. A $10 bouquet of tulips and I'm all his for the night. Ok, well for the night after we put the kids in bed. I'm easy for the man, what can I say?

    Single or married, I've always thought this was the stupidest holiday ever... designed to boost the flower and jewelry industry.

    I have a Valentine, and I hate Valentines Day! Really, it is rather silly. A card is fine, flowers not necessary... but damn it, if the Rally Monkey could deliver me a card, I'd be in high heaven!

    By the way, I agree on the Salary Cap!
