Crazy for Valentines
|The ice chapel in Quebec's ice hotel - popular for weddings|
my friend looked a bit uncomfortable. I guess I'm just a cheesy guy, he said.
OK now I feel guilty. I didn't realise Valentine's Day here is such a BIG DEAL.
I got two Valentine's gifts of chocolate from GIRLFRIENDS for goodness sake. Chilli chocolate was amazing by the way.
Then my friend tells me she and husband had been to the same patisserie at different times to buy chocolate gifts for the kids AND said patisserie was crowded with people buying chocolates.
Has anyone told them it's supposed to be for couples who are in love? Come to think of it it's all rather sweet. Thank goodness I'm going back to England soon for a refresher course on cynicism. Man, do I need it.
PS Although I think Valentine's is for sad saps I have never been known to refuse flowers. Big expensive flowers.
