Like our Eagle Express team, your loved one deserves to hear that you care about them this Valentine’s Day. Which is why you simply cannot trust cupid with your Metroplex Valentine’s Day delivery.
Why? To find out, let’s delve into a little Greek history.
The name Cupid is actually a Roman name that was given to the cherubic god of love sometime after the Greeks created the myth of Eros. Even the Greeks couldn’t decide on Eros’ origins. Some said he was the son of Nyx and Erebus; others said Aphrodite and Ares; still others named him the offspring of Aphrodite and Zeus.
In early years, he was described as a handsome immortal man, but by later years he appeared in folklore as a playful, mischievous child. One thing that most tales agreed on was that Eros/Cupid was armed with a bow and quiver, which was loaded with both leaden and golden arrows. The leaden arrows were said to cause aversion, while the golden arrows were used to ignite passion.
In some stories, Eros plays with the emotions of both mortals and immortals. One ancient Greek myth said that Eros shot a love arrow at Apollo, causing him to fall in love with Daphne. However, just for kicks, Cupid shot Daphne with a leaden arrow, causing her to want nothing to do with Apollo. Another myth tells the story of Cupid’s own forbidden love. Cupid’s mother Aphrodite was jealous of a mortal woman Psyche, and ordered her son to shoot an arrow that would cause Psyche to fall in love with a monster. Instead, Cupid became enamored with Psyche and married her. In an ending much like Romeo and Juliet, the story ends sadly until Psyche is brought back to life and given immortality.
Happy ending? Perhaps. But the point is, Cupid is a guy we just can't be sure about. We don't know his name, and nobody can agree on his appearance. He also tends to play around instead of getting the job done. This is exactly why he absolutely cannot be trusted with your Metroplex Valentine’s Day deliveries.
