This year I’m taking a part in 2 Valentine’s Blog hops, so be sure to scroll down (or up) & enter both! This one is sponsored by
Under the Covers Book Blog.
The theme is sharing a favorite Valentine’s story. I love this one from many years back, no offense to my hubby.
Although many people cannot fathom this fact, I don’t like chocolate. People I have known for over 20 years can never remember that I can’t stand the stuff. I get gifts all the time – chocolate themed, surprise birthday parties with chocolate cakes… you name it.
In my twenties, I worked for a veterinarian on Maui. A sweet gentleman (that had more than 20 years one me) showed up to repair our x-ray machine. It was Valentine’s Day, so we playfully bantered. Since I was single at the time, he teased he was going to shower me with a huge box of chocolates.
“You’d better made it a diamond, baby. I don’t like chocolate.”
When he left saying, “Challenge accepted,” I was worried I had just gotten myself engaged.
He returned after a while with a box of chocolates. I laughed & asked if he had forgotten already. When he held up the box, I saw he had taken a Sharpie & written “Un” above chocolates. Russel Stover was crossed off & his last name was written. I opened the box & discovered he had cut all the chocolate off the sides.
As far as my picky hiney is concerned, the candies were tainted & tasted of chocolate, but I of course would never say a word. It was by far the most extreme anyone has gone to for my freakazoid-ness. He has won the spot in my heart & my blog for best Valentines ever. Sorry, hubby.
Since my Time Travel Romance sequel, Dustin’s Turn, made it to print this week, I’m making that my giveaway. E for international – print US only.
