Advice for the Valentine Hearted

Hi there, guys and dolls! Do tell, is your Valentine’s Day going swoonily? Mine is, of course. More ardent admirers than I can shake a stick at. And who to choose for my dinner and dancing date tonight? Sigh, so many men, so little time. Anyhoo, that’s my dilemma and I’m sure I’ll come up with a solution or two. In the meantime, let’s help a couple of inquiring minds.

Dear Barbara Jean,

Ack, help! I went to a new beauty salon to get a special ‘do for Valentine’s Day with my sweetheart. It was a disaster! The dryer overheated with the permanent wave solution and scorched my hair all off! And this was the year I thought he’d finally propose, too. What is a girl to do?

Burned up Belinda from Boston

Oh which will Belinda choose?

Dear Belinda,

Oh my, I do hope you weren’t hurt! You don’t say that you were, so I’m guessing that it’s not a permanent thing (other than the wave, or lack there of…). After you have your lawsuit started of course, go out and get yourself a fine and dandy wig. There’s so many fantabulous styles and colors out there, go ahead and live a little. Who knows? A new ‘do might get you to the ‘I do’ even faster!

Ready to throw the rice, Barbara Jean

Dear Barbara Jean,

The girl I love has accidentally booked herself to babysit her sister’s child on Valentine’s. And I had a special dinner all planned with candles, chocolates and flowers. Gee whiz, Barbara Jean, I’m upset. What do I do now?

Romantic Ronald in Reno

Dear Ronald,

Maybe this will be Ronald’s result…

Well, don’t you sound like a swell guy! I do wonder, though, how does any girl ‘accidentally’ volunteer to babysit on Valentine’s Day….hope she feels the same way about you. Oh well, maybe she’s just not very bright. I say, take the romantic plunge, Ronald and take the date to her sister’s house. Wait til she has the little gaffer settled down and show up and turn on the charm.

Wishing you Valentine Smooches, Barbara Jean

Keep your letters coming! I love to help or hinder any way I can.

Thanks for reading and stay tuned for more posts. And don’t forget to give my Poppy Cove Mysteries a try if you haven’t already.

Toodles, Barbara Jean
