Last Minute Valentines Day

Last Minute Valentine's Day Gifts

It’s three minutes to Valentines and what’s that? Twang. What is that? Is it the twang of cupids bow or the twang of your heartstrings when you realise you’ve forgotten all about your other half. If it’s the twang of cupids bow at three minutes before deadline you need to really tune in to your twang much more carefully – shame on you. If however it’s because you’ve forgotten at least you have finally remembered. Get some credit for remembering, albeit a little late. Fess up and you’ve taken the first step towards recovery.

I know, I know, the boss has been on your case, the cars not working properly and the credit card bill is due but these are lame excuses and already the bill for absolution is at the roses and lilies level. Do you want to push it into the stratosphere of a large box of handmade Belgian chocolates as well? Can you risk an extended period of purdah? What will alleviate the frosty glances and icy stares? You will need plenty of chocolate, red roses lilies or other forms of heart shaped sweetness to really ensure your recovery is on a solid platform.

Recovery is going to be expensive and you know it but let’s look at why. Guys, and we know it’s always the guys who forget, do you understand the enormity of the crime you so nearly committed? She never really enjoys her birthday because that’s another year under her belt and what woman really enjoys being reminded? I guess the same thing’s to be said about anniversaries. The only time you can make her feel special, unconditionally special, with no come back is Valentines and you so nearly blew it!

Don’t fall at the last hurdle. The best advice is, if you’ve got it wrong admit it. Come clean – the flowers are in the post. That way you can get to forgiveness more quickly. Restitution must involve bigger, even grander gestures than you thought possible to make up for lost ground.

Here’s hoping you’re not a serial offender. Do you have a track record here or is this your first offence? If, regrettably, this is not your first offence then numbers will be critical. One dozen red roses? Not! You need to be imaginative with numbers. Multiple zeros is your penance. Try 100 of the very longest stemmed red roses and you might well survive.
