What the hell is that?
I can’t help but noticed that almost everywhere I go, I am reminded that Valentine’s Day is fast approaching. Even my favorite online game is dishing out valentine loots!
Of course, I don’t hate everything about the holiday, because after all celebrating love is great. But I am so over seeing a nude kid taking aim at people with a crossbow, red heart and roses, chocolates of all shapes and sizes and many more.
And what is the logic of this large teddy bear that cast a bigger shadow than Shaquille O’Neal? Ok, I got it! An 8 foot bear will show how much you care! But it might also show that you haven’t thought where your special someone will store the enormous expression of your love. And what if she doesn’t like it? Duh!!
It’s very unlikely for this gift to be misplaced like an ugly piece of jewelry or unwanted perfume. Look guys, an eight-foot teddy bear will be part of a girl’s life until the relationship ends. Maybe even after the relationship is over, because that XXXL teddy could weigh a whopping 40 pounds!
See, Mega-teddy and Valentine’s Day are a lot alike. They’re both bigger than they need to be, they are designed to make money and very hard to ignore.
And neither is very romantic.
If you bring home flowers, jewelry or other gifts on an ordinary day, then you’ll be romantic. But on Valentine’s Day, your just fulfilling a duty.
