Valentine in The Burbs
Like Yo it's Valentine's Day and we can't do another movie
its necking time and squeezing and dewinn the nasty
wasn't sure what to promise my Valentine this year. We always do the same thing each year and we still havent gone that extra step yet, I am worried he may change his speed or his wardrobe and suddently find me outdated or worse, unattractive and unspeakably boring (worst thing ever that can happen to you).
I am sitting by my balcony sipping an espresso and thinking how to spice it up a notch, but everything is on lockdown, even if the state capitol has not issued lockdown rules, effectively this Valentine's is ruined.
He worked at this company and I work at my place, we dont want to risk sharing an infection whose vaccine is in question and when reports are emerging worldwide that new strains are in play that are tougher than the vaccines in distribution.
So I shopped my girls for advice, some suggested a video date where we both get naked and entice each other into a frenzied masturbation marathon session. I dont know, masturbations are quickies to adjust the chemical battery acid its never about real feelings, emotions or sharing a deeper moment after the drugs kick inside your brains and you are floating momentarily in a peaceful state. When you have physical sex with someone it always creates an intimacy with another person beyond yourself, so the need to bond and continue that brief hour or two of pleasure translates into the need to resolve unresolved issues or open a new dialogue on other fronts. It doesnt always work, people always ignore that people arent formula until reality hits them back. There is nothing formula about sex beyond the mere mechanics and as you get older it gets more difficult. Your supply of charms begin to fade like dates on old calendars in the dusty box in the garage that need a good haul to the corner.
