The day that’s dreaded by men worldwide and loved in equal measure by women – Valentine’s Day – finally came to pass yesterday.
One of the stand-out romantics of the lover’s day was a man who splashed Sh60,000 for a newspaper advertisement celebrating his wife.
The ad appeared on Page 7 of the Star newspaper. It was poetically penned by a mysterious Casanova identifying himself as The Hubz and addressed to his wife, Double Biscuit alias Mrs M.
The Hubz starts with a smooth line, gushing: “Me loving you is not news but I’ll put it in a newspaper anyway.”
The smooth operator goes ahead to liken his Double Biscuit to some of his favorite things.
“If you were an estate you would be Milimani. If you were a birthday, you would be the 13th of September. If you were my dream car you would be a Mercedes G-wagon.
“If you were a TV character you would be Fallon. If you were a ridge, you would be Vipingo. If you were my favourite date you would be the 11th August. if you were a travel destination you would be Dubai.
“If love is blind then I lost my eyesight seven years ago. If marriage is hard then hard is what I want for the rest of my life. If I were to choose again I would still choose you. I’m not Kenyatta but you are my Ngina.
“I loved you then, love you now and will love you forever… Happy Valentines Mrs. M.”
