1 Dz Longstem Roses = $34.95 plus tax where applicable

Yes, the day is at hand. The one designed by Teleflora and the Jewelry Institute. Why not, instead, welcome a guest into your home to share that special meal? When I ran across this heartwarming story, I just knew it would help some of my less fortunate readers prepare for Sunday’s ordeal.  Yes Grrouchie, I am speaking to you.

A man was walking down the street when he was accosted by a particularly toothless, dirty and shabby-looking homeless man who asked him for a couple of dollars for dinner.

The man took out his wallet, extracted ten dollars and asked, ‘If I give you this money, will you buy some beer with it instead of dinner?’ No, I had to stop drinking years ago, ‘the homeless man replied.

‘Will you go to the local casino and lose it all playing poker’, he asked.  ‘No! Being a fish helped get me to this point.”

‘Will you use it to go fishing instead of buying food?’ the man asked.’ No, I don’t waste time fishing, ‘the homeless man said. ‘I need to spend all my time trying to stay alive.’

‘Will you spend this on greens fees at a golf course instead of food?’ the man asked. ‘Are you NUTS!’ replied the homeless man. ‘I haven’t played golf in 20 years!’

‘Will you spend the money on a woman in the red light district instead of food?’ the man asked.’ What disease would I get for ten lousy bucks?’ exclaimed the homeless man.

‘Well, ‘said the man, ‘I’m not going to give you the money. Instead, I’m going to take you home for a terrific dinner cooked by my wife.’ The homeless man was astounded.’ Won’t your wife be furious with you for doing that? I know I’m dirty, and I probably smell pretty disgusting.’

The man replied, ‘That’s okay. It’s important for her to see what a man looks like after he has given up beer, poker, fishing, golf, and women.’

    Awww, leave grrouchie alone. He is still in the love phase of the relationship. Give him some time for the married phase to kick in.

    OK, he’ll get my kinder/gentler side.  (hardly noticeable though)
    As an expert, is removing the nose ring when switching phases painful?  Although, it may still be a future event — not sure.

    I remember hearing this in another (but similar) version previously and always wanted to try something like it but have to find a way around getting shanked.
    Also, I removed my nose ring probably 10 years ago – though I do randomly miss being younger and looking the way I did during those years. (yeah, just glancing over your analogy to randomly insert that I had more piercings that I needed – whatever).
