On this day, I woke up with a hungover… A sleep hungover because I got home at 2am and could not sleep so sat up watching Investigative Discovery Extra and finishing my leftover matooke binyebwa katogo (banana in ground sauce).
I had actually forgotten this day is that one day when people pretend to care more about each other, when people expect a lot of presents for “caring”about another person. Isn’t love supposed to be that very unconditional thing? I mean do you need a specific day other the anniversary just to celebrate how much you love someone? Shouldn’t you do this at least every week? I know everyday can become so annoying, but you could make someone feel special throughout the year by showing them how you feel. Gifts are not everything you know, shopping expensive presents and buying bouquets won’t change the fact that you are never there whenever they need you. That you don’t even notice how lonely they look when you meet them once in awhile.
Loving someone is more than winning social media’s girlfriend of the year. Constantly making him your #MCM and showing off all the presents he bought you and telling your haters to suck it. Its more than his picture being all over his social media accounts, more than the cheesy posts. Loving someone is about understanding them and knowing the stuff that makes them who they are, by compromising because a good relationship needs a lot of that.
My point here is; as you celebrate today, teach yourself that we have to do more than just what we want but what is good for you and the person you are with. Relationships are not just like the movies, they are not about two quirky people making cute quirky memories with a cool song playing as they laugh through scenes filled with kisses and beautiful sunsets and the sooner people see that, the better.
Before you say; “Ugh, scorned single people just can’t let others celebrate in peace..” I am not single, have not been for years so basically enh! My date today is food, I just kick started this day with three heavy fluffy vanilla pancakes made in my kitchen (I feel like super woman this morning) I feel like baking a couple of cupcakes and indulging my hips, they love this kinda of thing I have to appreciate them for always looking good in everything I wear. Later on, I am going to partake in some Kentucky fried chicken with a bottle of wine as I watch Beckett and Castle or Bones and Booth catch criminals and live through this day the way it should be done, fooding.
Never mind me, I wish I cared for this day they way everyone else does but to be honest I am supposed to put up a blog for #UgBlogWeek and I had nothing to write about. Thank you for being nice and reading through all these stupid rumbles. Do enjoy the visual of me lazying on my couch covered in vanilla ice cream.
Happy Valentine’s day! ❤
