Vitrictus forgot about Valentines day.

Vitrictus spent valentines day, all day at the house. He was drinking beer, and watching his black and white television. His family was poor, but they made ends meet by buying and selling old antiques. He now and then would take a break from watching his television, and splattered a few flies, making blood soaked pin marks on the wall. He wore his white undershirt, with his big belly expanding the egg yoke stains on them. His pants were at least a few days old.

His wife came out near midnight, just past Valentines day. She talked, disrupting his favorite late night show, dream girls gone wild "Vitrictus, did you not know that today was Valentines day?"

Vitrictus yawned at his wife "It advertised it all day, that it was Valentines today, dear. I just had so much going on here. Well, watching football, and what not. And, I had to finish this case of beer before it spoiled. It is not as fresh, when you open the carton. Then when drinking this morning, it is hard to go out in a motor vehicle when drunk. Maybe I will remember you next year, dear! I really thought you would have forgotten about it. Your memory is that of a sharp cricket!"  He took a swig from his can.

His wife then went over to the case of beer. She hauled out four bottles. She went to the adjoining exit, that led to the kitchen, and then began to fire off a barrage of beer bottles that were never seen before on ninja tv.

One hit him in the stomach, one gave him a black eye, and one hit his knee, while the last one landed directly into his mouth. He twisted off the cap with his tongue, as it landed cork first, and began to chug it down in one big gallop.

He then rested the beer bottles at his side and before she could leave "Darling, I know it is Valentines day. But, tomorrow, the big sales are on for the discounted chocolates... I was thinking of getting you some left overs tomorrow.. And, with the money that I would have saved, we would take a trip to where we met... The city communal waste dump.. Remember, how I lifted that avalanche of furniture off of your chest. We both were looking for antiques, and we found two! Me and you, two shiny antiquities, in love!"

She sighed and looked up at the hole in the ceiling "Yep, you saved my life that day. And you gave us our two wonderful children that are now star poker players in the lower townships! Things could not have gone better for us!  I love you, darling!"

Sometimes, loving memories are all that is needed to rekindle a lost romance... Think of one, for your sweetheart, this coming valentines day!!!

My Dog has ate a Ferrero Rocher.

I had only went into a store to buy a few Ferrero Rocher packages of chocolates... Then, I went into the next store, not realizing that I left the small, 3 chocolates per package, delicious Rochers in my middle vehicle organizer. On the way back, I did not even notice.

I had got out of my vehicle, and only when I went to search for something on that side, it all came together. The package was torn, with only one individually wrapped Ferro Rocher out of its packaging. She had selected one, and even tore the golden foil paper from the once existing Rocher Chocolate.

I looked over at my Dog. This was a little too much for me to handle. I yelled "Pushkin! You ate one of my Ferrero Rocher!"  Is she the only dog in the world that probably ate a Ferrero Rocher.

Good point in standing, she actually thought the process through. She did not destroy the three chocolates in the package, all in one bite. She used her incisors, exactly as a surgeon would, to take apart the package from t…

Supermarket Guy 5 doing very well.

Have approximately 15 % written on Part 5 so far. It is going really well, but the first few chapters maybe more drama and less action. Relationships come into play as the main characters father and mother first meet. A meeting of the eccentrics, one extreme male dominate character with a woman who takes liberty to the maximum extreme, looking back to the 70's, where we remember the 8 track tape and black and white tv. When smoking was cool. A decade where the men held the dominance in affairs and in the household, and the women usually held the fort at the home. Things have changed for the better through the late 80s and 90s, as a womans place in the world has become much more equal these days, becoming bread winners and with the men sharing allot of the household chores these days in many families. Perhaps Margaret Thatcher paved the way for many women all over the world. Now even governments make sure there is a good number of women in their cabinet in order to govern, and man…
