My jump off never has me going out of my way
And she don’t want nothing on Valentines Day
Another year another DÃa del amor. Ladies, I hope you’re all being escorted out tonight and fed Lobster and chocolate covered strawberries and what have you. Gentlemen, I hope you all got a good deal on some fell-off-a-truck flowers and candy. To you lonley hearts out there spending the evening at home watching Lost, don’t feel bad, you’re not the only one. For reasons which are none of you ‘bags  business, I will not be spending Valentine’s Day with wifey this year. Sad, I know. Don’t worry though, your boy is not in the doghouse. I didn’t come home and find my mp3 collection strewn across the lawn. It just happens that a confluence of factors are preventing me and the love of my life from seeing each other today. It’s all puppies and roses though, ‘cuz this little greeting card clearance event happens to roll around every year ’bout this time. No doubt I will have plenty more opportunities to present my lady with dead flowers and schwagg, the first being tomorrow.
So I was looking at my post from February 14, 2006 earlier and I have to say, it was really slept on. I mean come on, 30 comments? That’s borderline criminal. I posted freaking "Wildflower" for crying out loud. On Valentine’s Day! Get it? Anyway, I’ve been thinking about what song/video/whatever I should include with this post to commemorate the occaison and I’m kind of at a loss. Noz premptively ethered me by upping "Mind Sex" earlier, so that pretty much leaves me with LL’s "I Need Love" (ha!) or "Happy Valentines Day" by Andre 2007 (I’ll pass). I’ve decided to play it really safe and go with "What’s On Your Mind" by Eric B and Rakim. It’s sappy and great and Rakim name checks Killer Ben. Plus whenver I hear it, it brings back priceless memories of a young Eskay getting shot down by chicks on the train. Plus, "Mahogany" was too obvious. Not exactly the most inspired choice, but relevant (to me) nonetheless.
