Kickass and Valentine Day
Kickass, the doorstop dog, joins the keeper in noting the life and death struggle against the coronavirus; and the seemingly hopeless absurdity of a traitorous narcissist praised and deemed unaccountable after damn near destroying the democracy; and then there is the weather—cold enough to freeze the, oh, never mind, just feel sorry for brass monkeys.
Entering on this stage of tragic melodrama is Valentine Day when romance is ordered up like Pizza, and everyone is expected to partake. Given prevailing circumstances, this is akin to expecting turkeys to celebrate Thanksgiving, or inviting Santa Claus over for reindeer venison dinner.
But “love” prevails, or none of us would be here on this Valentine Day, so celebration is called for; and the keeper and Phyllis marked their romance at Coventry Village’s version of “Black Tie” dining, which began with hostess Alissa mixing up “Cosmo Cocktails,” that were sensational!
“Roses are red. Violets are blue.
“Forget your troubles, ‘cause I love you!”
