Happy Valentine's from the Love Monster!


Last week S-Boogie and I made Valentine's decorations (at her request). We spent an hour or two making heart chains and cupids and then made, with the leftover pieces, the Love Monster. It will love you... to death! (I refer to it as it because I'm undecided on whether it's a he or she.)


My proudest creation is my Cupid heart, which I think of as my interpretation of Tolkien Boy's theory that if full-scale human cloning were a reality homosexuality would be much more common. Either that or the difficulty of flying as conjoined twin angels.


Tonight S-Boogie and I spent another two hours making Valentines for her classmates and teachers. After all that I am Valentined out. It's a good thing FoxyJ isn't expecting me to do anything Valentiney for her tomorrow.

Right?

Honey?

I wish I had a valentine monster in my house.

Feel free to print mine up and hang it above your thermostat.

Does it have to have thermostat pants, and is that some sort of commentary on love?

BTW, 72 F? Jimmy Carter says to turn it down to 65 and put on a sweater.

Mr. Fob said...

Jimmy Carter doesn't live in a cheap student apartment with a poorly (i.e. not) insulated glass door, where 72 really means 62. If he did he'd wear a sweater at 72, like we do.

Its clearly female.

And not because its pink.

Mr. Fob said...

Ah, yes, there are certain anatomical features that lend themselves to that interpretation.

Mr. Fob, you are SO talented!

My favorite is the cupid cutout--after the Valentine's montster, of course. Which is something that I think I need in my house. Except that I don't have a thermostat. Drats!

The Love Monster reminds me a bit of a nice Tongan boy I dated.....

Just keep near the thermostat then ;-).

"Its clearly female."

"Ah, yes, there are certain anatomical features that lend themselves to that interpretation."

I don't get it; not off to the side like that, right? Have I become that unfamiliar with the female form?

Mama said...

scot - they could be off to the side like that if the Love Monster breast fed.

I'm just saying.....

Mr. Fob said...

Sis: Thanks. Yes, unfortunately Love Monsters do prefer to perch on thermostats.

Mama: Had this nice Tongan boy by chance previously been a breastfeeding mother?

Scot: What she said.
