Valentine's Day Gifts
By Jennifer Klein, President
honey, I love you. Here's a Nordic Trak. Happy Valentine's
it comes to romancing their partner, it's clear that
cupid's arrows certainly can miss their mark. There
are a lot of unromantic people, losers in the love category,
who believe exercise equipment or housewares make appropriate
Valentine's Day gifts.
a recent survey on Dateable.com, we posed the question:
What is the least romantic gift you've received on Valentine's
Day? Here are the top three winners (or losers):
Heart: Roses, with a card for another woman!
Heart: A Nordic Trac. This person states, "I am not
sure if the message was your fat or not, but let's
just say I was not thrilled."
Heart: A book on making love. "Sounds good but it
sure can make a gal insecure," says an anonymous voter.
of the runner-ups were household appliances and tools.
What is this fascination for appliances? Ironically,
a recent study revealed that the number of clean homes
are declining due to women in the workforce. Although
these gifts are practical, they are, nonetheless, unromantic.
Runner-ups include the following:
Black & Decker screwdriver
power steering hose
was asked the question: "So how do we end this? A
handshake or a high five?"
Court. (You'd think the judge would schedule other
types of cases for that day, right?)
pear. Yes! A damn pear! I wanted a pear shaped diamond.
But, I got.. an actual pear!!
