Significant holidays always seem to bring about a significant pimple. One Thanksgiving I grew a doozy that friends started calling my horn of plenty. This year the eruption has appeared just in time for Valentine’s Day. I am growing something resembling a rhinoceros horn, which is far from seductive.
Luckily, The Sweetie and I do not get caught up in Valentine’s Day madness, so the holiday pimple will not be competing with other rosy hued items. I always tell him not to buy over priced Valentine’s chocolates when they will be half price the next day. Besides, they are usually assorted creams and who actually likes orange and strawberry cream filled chocolates?
Despite my harrumphing, my thoughts eventually turned to chocolate. I decided to try a Martha Stewart chocolate pudding recipe. The Sweetie deserves some chocolate as a token of my affection. I know he is doing his best not to let his eyes settle on the holiday pimple, although I have caught a few lingering glances. I know he loves me, rhino horn and all, and if that’s not love on Valentine’s Day, I don’t know what is.
