The Water Cooler – Do You Do Anything Special for Valentine’s Day?

February 14, 2020 12:00 pm · 21 comments

The “Water Cooler” is a feature on where we ask you a question or provide a topic, and you talk about it.

The “Water Cooler” will be up Monday-Friday in the noon hour.

Do you do anything special for Valentine’s Day, or is it just another day?

Also, if you absolutely had to pick a restaurant to visit on Valentine’s Day and you were guaranteed to get in without waiting, where would you go?

Talk about it….

Bought the Missy a plush full length hooded bath robe and a pair of warm slippers. (will be delivered today) As far as a restaurant…we will not go out but I do see a Leonidas Belgian Chocolates affair in near future 🙂

Happy Valentines day Roz, S and Silva. Hope you have a great day ladies.

Roz February 14, 2020 at 1:46 PM

Thank You Simonpure, and the same to You and the Missy!
I had a feeling that Leonidas Belgian Chocolates were in order for the day for you.

Though it can be a bit of a “Hallmark Holiday” I don’t see the harm in exchanging a note and small gift, going out and spending extravagantly aren’t necessary to show love & appreciation.

Something special? Only what I will never see, an honest politician.

But if I could get someone to take me to dinner I would like to go to Texas Roadhouse!

Stay home. Cards and candy for the kiddos. Chinese food and cupcakes.

Probably….House of Prime Rib

Nah,…don’t need anything special, just each other,…Hubby is my best buddy.
Will not be going to a restaurant, since Hubby is a grill master.
But I did buy him a Valentine’s Day card, let him know I am looking forward to growing old with him. We’ve been married 42 years, and hope we make to our 75th Anniversary. 🙂

That’s so sweet Roz…you two got us beat by two years. The wife is the grill master around here. I tend to overcook everything 🙂

Ohhh Happy Valentine’s Day to you and Hubby.

Mr. Smith February 14, 2020 at 2:06 PM

We go to Olive Garden.

Exit 12A February 14, 2020 at 3:33 PM

Well Dinner sound Yummy,…and special too!

@Exit 12A…Yeah, that 2016 is just swill. I have a nice 1971 Boone’s Farm Strawberry Hill that’s been aging in my cellar, any takers? I only have a couple of bottles left!

For that “special” someone, the San Antonio Zoo will let you name a cockroach or a rat after your former lover and feed it to an animal where you can watch it livestreamed for all the world to see their very first “Cry Me a Cockroach” event taking place on Valentine’s Day this Friday.
“You will be able to name a cockroach after your ex, and we will serve it up as a snack to one of our animals for only $5,” said the San Antonio Zoo in their event announcement. “If your ex was a snake, you can even name a rat after them, and we will feed it to a reptile for $25.”

Nothing really special…save that for another day when prices, crowds, and service are all better.

If I could go anywhere and guaranteed entry, I’d choose the French Laundry.
