The Adventures of Periwinkle and Stinky


Periwinkle paced back and forth in front of the Teleportation Tunnel waiting for her boyfriend, Stinky, to arrive.  She was always nervous that something would mess up in the Tunnel (like when his brofur Raleigh was in it) and he would end up somewhere else.   After a few minutes, she heard the familiar WOOSH and out popped Stinky right into her paws.   They spent time whisker kissing and paw patting.  Stinky asked how Periwinkle's fursib Raz was doing and Periwinkle said he was doing great.  He was a good boy and let her Mom give him his meds without a fight.

Once again, Stinky asked excitedly if they would see the manatees.  Periwinkle said it had been pretty warm and there were still no manatees at their favorite spot.  He looked disappointed but was always happy spending time with his girlfriend.

Periwinkle surprised him by handing him a rose to wear and she popped on a rose headband.  Slightly confused, but always wanting to please Periwinkle, he put on the rose.  
"You sure look pretty in your rose headband," said Stinky.  Periwinkle blushed and thanked him.  She thought he looked pretty handsome with his rose too.  "Today is Rose Day and the start of Valentine's Week.  I thought it would be fun to tell our fans about this week," said Periwinkle.

Periwinkle had her Mom's laptop set up on the table and she pulled up some sites to tell him more about Rose Day and Valentine's Week.

"Here are some ways to celebrate Rose Day" said Periwinkle. “What is in a name? That which we call a rose by any other name would smell as sweet.” Yes, it does not matter if we do not call a rose by its name, it will do its work, and it will sweeten your atmosphere around. This bloom is the symbol of love, purity, respect and peace.

If you offer a single rose to someone, that represents you are thanking that special person being in your life. If someone presents you a bunch of red roses, that means that certain someone wants a special corner in your heart. It is a silent “I love you” without uttering a word, the rose builds the bridge between two souls whose hearts are beating pounding for love.  (Stinky blushed at this knowing she just gave HIM a rose!)

Rose is the only kind by which people can pour their hearts out with their feelings. From the ancient time, this blossom has been enthroned as an emblem for deep love, peace, affection, appreciation, admiration and many more human emotions.

You can also give a rose to friends, a yellow rose is the  symbol for friendship. By giving a yellow rose you can win a lovely smile on your friends’ faces.

Don’t forget your lovely parents who gave you a chance to live this beautiful life by adopting you. Give them a white rose which signifies purity and peace, and tells them you are soulfully grateful towards them."

Stinky was impurressed by what Periwinkle had found.  "What about the rest of the week? he asked" 

They both giggled when they saw Propose Day and then again when they saw Teddy Day. Stinky asked "Should we go visit our pal Teddy on Friday?" 

Both tabbies agreed that they could use a snack and Stinky gasped when he saw the way Periwinkle decorated their favorite snack spot.

After they finished their Fancy Feast, they decided they should get some roses for their Moms.  Fortunately, they could do online ordering and the roses arrived before Stinky had to leave.

Soon it was time for Stinky to head back home.  He thanked Periwinkle for another fun Adventure and they both said they were looking forward to next week's Adventure.  With a WOOOSH, Stinky with his paws full of roses, headed back home.

Periwinkle went to find her fursibs and to have a nice nap dreaming of her handsome boyfriend.

That was fun, a day in to enjoy each other's company and learning something new. A special time, if you ask me.

Periwinkle, this was such a great adventure. I learned so much that I didn’t know. Mom didn’t know about any of those special days. I really appreciate my rose, and she appreciates hers. You looked super pretty in your rose head band.I love yo so much, and can’t wait for Valentine’s Day. šŸ’–šŸ’“šŸŒ¹ Stinky

We love roses, and we had never heard of Valentine's Week!

Pam and Teddy said...

Valentine's Week is a special week for sure and I had NO IDEA that one of the days was named after ME ME ME (I know it's actually named for Teddy Bears but I can pretend can't I???). What's really funny is that my Gotcha Day is February 12th so I guess my Mom and Dad got me from the shelter on KISS DAY - during Valentine's Week. I think Stinky and Periwinkle are the perfect couple to tell us about Valentine's Week since they are IN LOVE!

Hugs, Teddy
