MrMary’s Happy Valentine’s Day Wish to a Special Blogger

81Earlier this week I asked Ms. Cupitonians, if her blog would like to be my blog’s Valentine. She replied in the affirmative. She didn’t even ask for my blogs number; further proof of how progressive Ms. Cupitonians and her blog are especially given my blog’s reputation for being, well easy. One or two nice comments my way and I’m face deep in throat cancer Michael Douglas style. ( Is that art imitating life or just how I get down, literally ?)

What’s Valentine’s Day without …

A Card ?

Every women who has relented, and accepted as terms of her defeat, being my Valentine’s for a day has received a hand-made card from me. Being that very few have ever relented I have been forced to created special ‘future scenario Valentine’s Cards’. I created these two just in case I ended up, like many black-men before me, succumbing to either the stereotype of getting Diabetes or a chatting with lovely white woman who was into a black guys.

A Realization

According to Ms C, ” Nothing says I love you like a Sanitary Napkin!”

So I had to create a special card for Ms C, something funny yet sophisticated. She is easy on the eyes young and full of life, and has a wicked sense of humor and her blog being her creation has been endowed with the same qualities. I wanted something that embodied the spirit of my blog. I want something, humorous, informational, and bit crass, but supportive of a woman’s rights.

I sat around for hour and couldn’t think of anything until it hit me. In that moment of epiphany  I realized that I had to go back to my original inspiration for the blog: the movie Mary Poppins. You see Mary Poppins was the first time I got introduced to the idea that truth while it can be a catalyst for change like medicine also tastes like shit, and we need to add some sweetness to it to help in ingesting it. The Lyrics are very clear on this fact:

In ev’ry job that must be done 
There is an element of fun 
You find the fun and snap! 
The job’s a game

And ev’ry task you undertake
Becomes a piece of cake
A lark! A spree! It’s very clear to see that

A Spoonful of sugar helps the medicine go down
The medicine go down-wown
The medicine go down 
Just a spoonful of sugar helps the medicine go down
In a most delightful way

So After Much Tinkering

I realized that my life has been filled with bitter moments, and I’ve grown used to the taste. As a result I would rather take my medicine straight and save the sugar  for others who need it more. So without further ado:

    I had never really thought of the idea that you could take another blog for a Valentine. I’m going to try doing that every year from now on. For now, here’s MrMary’s Valentine to me. If you don’t already follow him, you should!
