We all know that Valentine's Day is a "Hallmark holiday," a conspiracy among greeting card makers, florists, confectioners, and jewelers to guilt men into buying a l'il somthin' somethin' for their little sugar love muffins during the winter doldrums.
And, okay, I'll admit, I love getting flowers (even though the spouse won't buy them anymore since the cats eat them, drink the water from the vase, and wind up sending the vase and flowers crashing to the floor, typically within 24 hours) and a small box of really good dark chocolates or dark- and white-chocolate-covered strawberries (hint).
But the real reason I have come to like Valentine's Day is JC Penney, or rather JC Penney's brilliant and funny "Doghouse" ads. Here's the latest Doghouse ad, titled Return to the Doghouse.
That Return to the Doghouse ad totally cracks me up.
Too broke or too jaded to buy your sweet pea some sugar this Valentine's Day? Give her a compliment instead, one that is heart felt. As I like to say, a compliment costs nothing, means everything, and lasts forever.
So with an open heart I thank you for continuing to read my blog and wish you all a very happy Valentine's Day...
Google, Google, and More Google!
