Single Men May Have To Cool It For Mardi Gras
Valentine’s Day 2018 might be the most hungover Valentine’s Day on record, for it falls on Wednesday, Feb. 14 the day after the end of Mardi Gras, or Fat Tuesday.
After all, Fat Tuesday is all about partying, singing, dancing, wearing beads and drinking potent drinks like Hurricanes. It’s not about “saving up” for the next day. Sometimes, it’s about all one can do in order to get up and make it to work on time the next day.
For any single guy trying to plan a nice date with his gal, this is the worst “are you kidding me” scenario. They face the possibility of or – gasp – missing it entirely to save up valuable body energy for the romantic evening.
For those in one of the Top Carnival Destinations in the world such as Rio or New Orleans, then the smart advance planners have already decided to delay and Valentine’s Day celebrations until the weekend. “Give her a card and a rose on Wednesday and see you on Saturday!
For married men who like to go out on Fat Tuesday, the situation is even stickier, for they cannot give the perception that they prefer partying with their buddies over being romantic with the wife.
So if they do go out and get hammered for Fat Tuesday, they had better be prepared to step up to the plate on Wednesday night. And depending on how silly or bad they behaved on Tuesday, this could well be a make-up dinner, as well. And this is not the best thing most men do in the first place.
The best solution, of course, is to take your significant other with out when you go out for Fat Tuesday.
Regardless of the scenario, ladies, be kind to your man this year on Valentine’s Day. He may not be at 100%!
