Recipe for Love
- a pound of ambition

- a gallon of charm

- 2 heaping tablespoons of loyalty

- a bushel of light spanking
Mix together and serve hot.
'What is your recipe for love?' at

Been listening to a radio station out of Kansas City (96.5 the Buzz). The morning show does this thing that they call War of the Roses: you can call the morning show and they will set up this thing where they call the person of your choice, pose as a florist that is new to the neighborhood and running a promotion where they will give you a dozen roses and deliver them to the person of your choice for free.

The purpose behind this is ostensibly to see if the person is cheating, or if they'd send the flowers to you. Of course, it's also done for entertainment (which is why it's on the radio).

See now, here's the thing: if somebody offers me a dozen roses, delivered, for free, I might not send them to a romantic interest (or even a potential romantic interest). I might just send them to a friend who I figured would appreciate a dozen roses. Or I might send 'em to my mom.

Then again, I'm not exactly romantically involved with anyone. If I were, I'd probably send them to her.

But more than that, I have a hard time concieving of being in a relationship where my S.O. would feel a need to test me like this. If there is that much doubt, then there is something wrong in the relationship.

I suppose that's the point.
