Kellie has a very interesting prompt for this week’s Free Write Friday. Dedicated for the special holiday that we had to celebrate all day long. For some it was a day that you absolutely hated and was waiting until you got home to drink your wine and eat your cookie dough ice cream. The rest spent with their partners, having a blast! At least I would think so. You got the flowers, balloons, and special gifts that only they know you like. Well, I got the less traditional gifts of Valentine’s Day. Yesterday I had made a comment to my dad that this year would be my eighth year of being single of Valentine’s Day. He gave me one of his usual sighs and when I got up this morning he came in with two packets of Kit Kats. I’m not going to need anything chocolate for the rest of the month looks like! It was very sweet of him to do. Since the Midwest has been hit a lot in the last three and a half weeks with these damn snowstorms, I’ve been basically stuck in the house for two weeks straight. I finally got out this morning before the third of our snowstorm started up. Luckily, we were all at home when it started. I got to go to my nana’s while my mom did her errands for her. We talked about random topics and I got to see this cute little card that my nana made for my papaw. It was a heart-shaped card and it had sparkly red thingys on it, plus a little poem. It was adorable to say the least! This evening I got to spend it with my folks watching We’re The Millers and laughed out butts off!
Back to the prompt though, I guess after all these years I have become a little bitter around different holidays, especially this one and Christmas, because I’ve been the one without anybody for so long that it just continues to get old. Some single people go hang out with their friends, which is what my sister’s doing, but since all of my friends live overseas, a couple of towns away, or just have boyfriends themselves that they just forget about me altogether. For some I know they don’t mean it, but like I said I have become a little bitter in the last couple of years. I have never been in a real relationship before and sadly I don’t know how to kiss. I have had those butterflies that everybody talks about though. With every crush I had in school, they’d come in full swing and never let me down. I’ve blushed my cheeks off and passed a note at lunch when I was freshman. I’ve given out my number to a guy only once in my life and “watched” from a safe distance. I was pretty pathetic between freshman and junior years of high school. I’m pretty lucky right now to not regret a single thing I did because I did learn a lot throughout all of it, but I’ve never been able to put it in good use since 2012. Apparently I’m still a pathetic person now! I got pretty jealous of couples while I was in school. I think I’ve grown up enough that the whole couple thing doesn’t bug me as much, it’s just being the third wheel sucks.
