Valentine's Day Commandments

THIS evening my friends and I talked about Valentine's Day and how unromantic most of our "better" halves were. So here are my 10 commandments for my "dearly beloved".
1. Thou shalt worship no other woman except me, even if she is 18 with the body of an athlete and her father owns a brewery.
2. Thou shalt not take my name in vain and will lie through your teeth in the pub to give the impression I am a softly-spoken goddess with the milk of human kindness running through my veins.
3. Thou shalt remember it's Valentine's Day and keep it holy with a multitude of sacrifices including chocolates, flowers, champagne and expensive jewellery.
4. Thou shalt honour my family and ignore the fact that half of them are barking.
5. Thou shalt remember the Sabbath and take me out to Sunday lunch so that I do not have to have to do unspeakable things to you with a roast parsnip.
6. Thou shalt not commit adultery unless thou desirest to spend the rest of your life talking in a high voice and wearing women's clothes.
7. Thou shalt not murder multitude pints of beer on a Saturday night and then come home and try to convince me you are sex on legs.
8. Thou shalt not steal my chocolate unless thou desirest to spend the rest of your life without hands.
9.Thou shalt not covet our neighbour's ass, even if it is half the size of mine and perched on top of endless legs
10. Thou shalt realise that even if I change my mind from one second to the next, I am always right and you are always wrong.

  3. Tea towel? ARent you the lucky one! I had a bunch of limp carnations that looked as if they had been to Moscow and back on a freighter.
