It’s the month for love and lovers everywhere. Flowers…candy…romantic, candlelit dinners.
I just threw up in my mouth a little bit.
I actually looked back to my Facebook feed from last year, and I had dared Cupid to come anywhere near me. I’m still not sure I want that little weirdo coming anywhere near me with his diaper, bow and arrow.
Now, don’t get me wrong…when it comes to love, I’m always accepting applications. I am not completely closed off to the idea. I just don’t want to get shot in the, well, back of my front.
But if I’m really honest, I have to admit that I do love the idea of romance. What woman doesn’t, right? I mean, I wouldn’t turn down some flowers and candy if they came sailing my way.
But Hallmark Channel, could you please back up off the romantic comedies?
In this issue, we’ve provided you with just enough romance to wet your whistle….to get you feeling all warm and fuzzy. You’ll read about some newlyweds who are living a real life romance, not some contrived-for-television thing. Faith and James got engaged on Sweetheart Circle at Georgia Southern, and if you spend just a few minutes reading their story, it will become clear they’re still basking in that newlywed glow. Such a sweet story and an even sweeter couple.
Also in this issue, you can read about the Abner Cope exhibit and the Walnut Theatre production of “Last of the Red Hot Lovers,” as well as the Pam Tillis Trio, set to perform at the Averitt. These events are among several planned for this month that you won’t want to miss – and any of them would make for a great date night.
Alright, already. I suppose, with all the romance in the air, I should just get on board with this whole valentine thing.
Bring it on, Diaper Boy.
