The price of love

Today is Valentine’s Day. If you don’t live on mars, it’s pretty impossible not to know about it. I have the feeling this year’s V-Day will be a little different than the other years. With my single girlfriends, we decided to spend the evening together and transform it into a club for the broken hearts. On the seven women attending this strange party, three have been dumped recently, so we would do our possible to cheer them up.
As you probably know, I’m a journalist, and recently, I had to write an article about how the recent hike of gold prices could make V-Day really costly for those who want to buy jewelry for their love one on this occasion. So, I had this idea: who would really benefit from this commercial day? Because, as Madonna said, we are living in a material world (and I’m a material girl).
First, the florists.
In my company, the receptionists decided to sell some flowers for V-Day. Isn’t that weird?
Then, the chocolate makers.
The restaurant owners
The hotels
The beer makers (for men) or the champagne makers  (for women)
The escort boys
Ben & Jerry’s (works also with Häagen Dazs and Dreyer’s)
Why don’t they make V-Day a free cone day?
The sex shops
The video/DVD stores
But apparently, not the jewelers this year.
Personally, if even I was desperate, I would never pick the gigolo, would you?

  1. I live in Mars. Valentine’s big here. we bite on our loved ones’ elbows on this special day. don’t worry it’s not weird, it’s the norm here.

    Apparently travel agencies pull in some serious coin today too.

    I can honestly say I would never pick the gigolo. Now, had you said call girl, that’s a different story.

  3. WIGSF, for the travel agencies, I’m not sure. One of my friends works for one, and she told me she doesn’t see a big difference for V-Day. But maybe it’s because of our commercial practices here.
    Of course, call girls count in this. Sorry to forget that one.
