Valentine’s Day is around the corner but it’s not all hearts and roses for everyone. If you’re single, this holiday can be rough if you’re going solo. I can tell you right now my hot date for the night is going to be a giant box of chocolates I shamelessly buy for myself. Sometimes you gotta be the one treat yourself to a romantic evening, right?
Well, if you’re going to be alone this Valentine’s Day and especially if you’re newly single or you’ve got some unresolved issues with an ex, I have excellent news for you. This year you can give yourself a V-Day gift that’s more satisfying than any box of chocolates and more beautiful than a dozen red roses.
The El Paso Zoo, in the most wonderful gift to the world, is offering to name a cockroach after your ex and feed it to a meerkat on livestream.
I don’t care how amazing your dinner date with your significant other is, literally NOTHING could be more satisfying than drinking a glass of wine in a candlelit room and watching a cockroach representation of your ex get absolutely mangled by a zoo animal. It takes a lot to make me weepy but that… that really brought a tear to my eye.
The event is called “Quit Bugging Me” (get it) and all you have to do is hit &attend’ and message the zoo with the name of your ex, then kick back on February 14 and watch the magic happen.
