……With a pair of SHOES
Maybe I’m feeling a bit jaded because I’ll be in Hollywood soon and just read a funny column by Jackie Collins wondering if Valentine’s Day really matters? We can leave that up to you. Her real real favorite story goes like this:
One very beautiful Hollywood wife – married to a man 20 years older than she – is having an affair with a hunky young actor who’s just hit it big on a TV show. Valentine’s Day is approaching , and both men want to buy her something substantial. “An important piece of jewelry,” offers her husband, fired up with Viagra. “Whatever you want,” says her young lover, fired up with testosterone. The Hollywood wife thinks about this. Surely she has been presented with an opportunity to score big-time? Advantage must be taken, so she visits a fancy jeweler, picks out an exquisite yellow diamond cocktail ring, and proposes to the jeweler a deal: Her husband buys the ring for her, paying full price. Then her boyfriend buys the same ring, except the jeweler gives 90 percent of the price to the wife without anyone knowing. So now both men have bought the same ring, and not only does the Hollywood wife get the bauble but she gets to wear it with either man because each is under the impression that he gave it to her as a special Valentine’s Day gift. She’s happy with plenty of extra spending money. Hunky lover is delighted he gave her such a magnificent present and so is hubbie. And the jeweler walks away with a handsome profit. Satisfaction all around. Valentine’s Day – Hollywood Style!
Wishing you a lovely day filled with sunshine and exquisite jewels (but I’ll be happy with just the sunshine).
