Our first kiss won't be the last
Our loves too deep to end that fast
and good things come to those who have to wait
I believe it's only time that keeps us from the thing divine,
and when it's here you know I'm gonna say lay it on my lips
Valentines day tomorrow, fun huh? So I'm sat here staring at a Potato, yes. SOMEONE remembered my little Pro Potato as a gift of affection rant a couple of years ago , After some clever formulation and a brief discussion with friends at the time at how Flowers where superfical and sucked at being representations of love. We decided Potatoes where better.
I mean, Flowers have one purpose - To look preety,
Yes, its a flutter to the girls heart when the guy she loves,
Has gone to the thought and given her that Single red rose,
That single, Uniform piece of beauty - Unique in its own respect.
But it looks preety, It'll soon die.
The girl will look after it and care for it, But eventually it will
stop being preety and die and then its discarded.
That says to me
"My love for you is transitory and based solely on your appearance"
But a Potato? Well, well well.
A potato historicaly has a number of uses, from curing toothache to solving all sorts of skin conditions, You can eat them, You can make batterys out of them, Its even been known from early ages for children to cut them up to make stamps for painting.
Whats that say about your love?
"I have many ways in which I show my love for you"
Not only that but leave a potato alone and what will it do? It'll grow! Yeah, that makes it awesome thats like saying, Our love togther will grow regardless, That in its self makes it the best symbol for love there is.
But theres more, Potatoes are Ugly, but they're still awesome as I demonstrated and what does that say?
"It doesn't matter at all what you look like, I'll still love you"
That my friends is true love,
But.. Think about this, You give your valentine a potato, they'll be like 'ugh what?'
You explain, they'll laugh, they'll call you cute and they'll call you crazy.
And very few girls will ever get a potato for valentines day and that'll be special,
That will be a sacred moment between the two, A girl who's lived life had a few valentines will
of had several single/dozen/houses full of roses - The potato will be a shared moment between the
two of you, something truley special.
Now, I'm not suggesting you cover her bed in potato peel or fill her bedroom with potatos and dot them all over the house.
But, Valentines days a farce as it is, Its complete and utter bollock, You should show your love for someone throughout the year, Its expected on Valentines day, Its a given that you will or the person will be hurt, So let your 'love' extend further than a media pre-defined day.
And don't fall onto a crutch of love, Don't be cliche, be special, be romantic, be thoughtfull. Because thats what matters.
But, remember.. Still get her a rose or you'll be a dead man, (girls are superficial like that)
Lots of Love!
