Be Mine, Love Bug? The Valentine Gift They’ll Never See Coming
Have you ever felt like the flowers, cards, and candies you've bought for your love just aren't enough, that they aren't unique enough? Do you and your love have a warped sense of humor? Maybe your love is into bugs. Like really, really into bugs. If you're nodding your head yes to all of these, I've got a gift idea your other half will never see coming. Granted, you'll need to tread lightly so this isn't taken the wrong way, but if you present it the right way, this is a gift that will go down in your relationship history as the most memorable.
According to bug experts, cockroaches have inhabited our planet for more than 350 million years, a never-ending amount of time if you ask some. The same experts say that you really should consider naming a Madagascar Hissing Cockroach after your love as a way to prove your eternal devotion to them.
Now through Saturday, February 15, you can visit the website of the Houston Museum of Natural Science and for just five dollars, you can name a cockroach after your love. No, they won't send the bug to you, but they will send you a digital certificate that you can print and present to your Valentine.
What about your cockroach? Well, your roach will take up residence in the Heartbreak Motel at the Houston Museum of Natural Science and you can check in on it whenever you'd like by watching the roach motel live-stream.
