Out of the Blue

Happy Saint Valentine's Day! Got a significant other? Got flowers or candy or dinner reservations lined up? If not, do you have a comfortable couch?

Also, happy Telework Week (thanks [H]ard-OCP). I'm doing my part, but I always do. Is anyone who doesn't normally telecommute getting to do so this week as a result of this?

I can't since my job requires being tight secured labs and physical accesses. I don't want to work at home during hot days since my room can go up to 90F degrees (AC doesn't help upstair much).

LOL, that's something to try. With the right girl that would actually go over well.

Well enough to bake some heart-shaped chocolate chip cookies, especially if you help make them. Afterward watch a movie together while eating those freshly-baked cookies. It's a win-win! Thumbsup

A store that sells NEW HUSBANDS has just opened in New York City, where a woman may go to choose a husband. Among the instructions at the entrance is a description of how the store operates. You may visit the store ONLY ONCE! There are SIX floors and the attributes of the men increase as the shopper ascends the flights.

There is, however, a catch: you may choose any man from a particular floor, or you may choose to go up a floor, but you cannot go back down except to exit the building! So, a woman goes to the Husband Store to find a husband.

On the first floor the sign on the door reads: Floor 1 - These men have jobs.

The second floor sign reads: Floor 2 - These men have jobs and love kids.

The third floor sign reads: Floor 3 - These men have jobs, love kids, and are extremely good looking.

"Wow," she thinks, but feels compelled to keep going. She goes to the fourth floor and sign reads: Floor 4 - These men have jobs, love kids, is drop-dead good looking and help with the housework.

"Oh my God!" she exclaims, "I can hardly stand it!" Still, she goes to the fifth floor and sign reads: Floor 5 - These men have jobs, love kids, are drop-dead gorgeous, help with the housework, and have a strong romantic streak.

She is so tempted to stay, but she goes to the sixth floor and the sign reads: Floor 6 - You are visitor 31,456,012 to this floor. There are no men on this floor. This floor exists solely as proof that women are impossible to please. Thank you for shopping at the husband store.

Recently a New Wives Store opened across the Street.
The first floor has wives that love sex.
The second floor has wives that love sex and have money and like beer.
The third, fourth, fifth and sixth floors have never been visited.

Don't get to work from home for Telework week, but I got to work from home for 7 days total because of the blizzards the past two weeks.

So I can't complain.

For me, it's "No", "No" and "Yes" and life just couldn't be awesomer.

The only way I can figure it is women know what a horrible, terrible gift flowers are and know what a stupid, stupid waste of money it is, but they force men to do it to show their "commitment".
