Urban dictionary defines Valentines-less-ness (High-five!!, if you are hearing this word for the first time too.) as:
A term used to describe not having a valentine on Valentine’s Day. Often leads to depression and sleep deprivation. Many people are subject to Valentines-less-ness because they are the “Just friends” kind of person.
Well, if valentine is not subjective to a boyfriend and girlfriend only, I still feel its valentine:
- When my mom kisses me and says “You are one in a million”
- When my father asks me “Oh, you worked so late today? You must be tired.”
- When my brother tells me “Don’t worry, party all night. Call me when it’s over and I will come to pick you up.”
- When my cousin tells me “I have fixed a blind date with my co-worker who I feel is right for you.”
- When I am moodless, and my friend quickly says “Lets go and have a drink!”
- When my best friend hugs me and says “It’s not fun without you.”
- When my four-legged miracle greeted me excitedly when I returned home and licked my face.
- When I see people around me in love, which lets me know that love still exists!!
- When the shop owner gives me a free warm cookie along with my chai.
- When a stranger makes your day by handing you a loving note. Not in a creepy way! Brooklyn-based freelancer Erika Anderson, like last year, invited about 50 people to her house for a valentine-making party, where the group made over 1000 love-notes using handmade paper. If you happen to be in New York, you might get lucky to get a Valentine note of your own! Erika will ride the A, C, and F trains through Crown Heights and the Lower East Side. Hopefully you’ll see her or another member of the #ArmyOfLovers. Her friend in San Francisco is extending the movement to the West Coast.
Wonder if India government and nationalist political party will give a nod to such visual thought-provoking advertisement!!
Noooo, this is not promoting child trafficking. It’s an advertisement about a free ticket for a child on purchase of a ticket for accompanying adult at Aquarium of the Pacific at Long Beach, CA!!
How do you enjoy a juicy burger? The only way to eat a burger is with a wide open mouth and take a bite which often than never leaves me with that “condiment smile”, where the ketchup, mustard, etc. is smothered all around my lips. It looks funny but unappetizing for the other person, so I avoid eating it ‘my’ way! However, I was not aware until now that eating with your mouth wide open is considered a cultural faux in Japan. Were you?
In Japan, it is culturally regarded as attractive to have ‘Ochobo’ – a small and modest mouth. The opposite is frowned upon as rude an ugly. Thus, a nation known for its impeccable table manners, gorging a burger in public with an open mouth, especially for women, is not considered as a good manner. To make it socially easier for Japanese woman when eating one of their burgers, Freshness Burger (a fast food restaurant chain) came up with an idea and created a ‘Liberation Wrapper’ to avoid a cultural faux. Its said that sales have soared 213 per cent in just one month since introducing it.
