Yes, Valentine’s Day was yesterday. But I was busy.
Anyway, I posted these Valentine’s Day suggestions on Twitter, and felt it would behoove the development of the Nick of Time brand to also post them here.
Valentine’s tip #1: Don’t be an idiot. Buy a gift no matter what she says.
Valentine’s tip #2: Even if she says roses are overpriced – buy roses – not orchids, peonies, dandelions, or whatever.
Valentine’s tip #3: Cook something, even if it’s grilled cheese (hint – add tomato).
Valentine’s tip #4: Everybody at work bought her chocolate. Get something different, like a gourmet cupcake, gelato or chicken wings.
(Post VD update: Chocolate covered blueberries from Reilys in Medford, NJ are the exception).
Valentine’s tip #5: If you are going out, dude, you should have made reservations like 3 weeks ago. Don’t be calling today.
Valentine’s tip #6: Put out.
Valentine’s tip #7: Take her out to do something different – ice skating, ballroom/salsa dancing, local live theatre, etc.
Valentine’s tip #8: When ice skating, don’t stare at the other girls in the tight, lycra pants.
Valentine’s tip #9: Don’t invite her to come watch your band.
Valentine’s tip #10: DO NOT watch the movie ‘Valentine’s Day.’ If your date does want to watch this tripe, you are dating the wrong person.
