Valentine's Day

Why have we allowed ourselves to be manipulated into believing that this day is somehow important if you are in a relationship?  Equally so if you are not.  Most singles see this day as some sort of failure on their part.

I say "Fuck You Valentine's Day".

I was stressing for weeks.  I know how tight the budget is for me right now.  I was going crazy that I could not do something special for my super cool man friend.  I finally broke down one night last week and flat out said "Hey honey, sorry, but I am not gonna be able to do anything for you this V-day".  His reply?  "I was just gonna get you a card, I don't DO those kinds of holidays."

After my initial open mouthed wide eyed shocked reaction...I took a minute to think about what he had said and it seemed the more I thought about it, the more it made sense.  As always, he was correct.  This is just a day that has been invented to sell shit.  Especially for people who are feeling guilty.  Which I am not, so, BONUS!

The next day, (the day after that conversation) I get a text from my super cool man friend.  He asks if he can take me on a date, in lieu of doing anything for the dreaded V-day.  A nice date.  One where we can dress up. 

So that is what I have to look forward to.  We are going out this weekend.  Just he and I.  Not to celebrate anything, but to just be together.  How romantic.  I get all giddy just thinking about it.


  1. I took the day off from work today to hang with Bobina & then visit Goose at her kindergarten for her party. You wouldnt believe how appreciative my wife was for me to to just hang at home, let her sleep in and take her to lunch. NO, i will not tell you how appreciative...but very appreciative.

    Happy Heart Day
