Valentine's Day - Top Ten things not to say

Oops I nearly forgot to write the Valentine's Day post, which ironically gave me the inspiration for the content of this Top Ten list. For a guy, Valentine's Day (if he remembers) means a walk to second base, or further if he gets chocolates and a bear to go with the seasonally overpriced roses. Men are not as emotionally invested in the whole concept like the womenfolk.

A wed wose; how womantic
The power of a flower
I can't help you remember to get your girl a gift, or even suggest which one would work best, although flowers and chocolate seem to have global success. But I CAN help you with the Top Ten things NOT to say if you come home empty handed on Valentine's Day.
10. Sorry, I left your gift on Corinne's desk at work
 9. Walmart had a very poor selection this year
 8. If it makes you feel better, I'll get you some flowers tomorrow.
 7. I'm your present, baby. You can unwrap me
 6. Flowers are so old fashioned, I brought you a 6 pack of beer to share instead
 5. I think our relationship has progressed beyond some tacky 'Hallmark Holiday' tradition
 4. But chocolates would make you even fatter
 3. I got you something last year and you didn't even put out
 2. Have you seen the price of roses these days?
 1. Sarah never used to bitch about not getting a gift
Hopefully, none of you find yourselves in this predicament, but if you do, take it like a man and make sure you don't forget her birthday or your anniversary.

Have you ever forgotten Valentine's Day? What was your excuse? What was the outcome? Share your stories below in the comments section.
