Well, it is the day of love.
It is also the day in which flower, jewelry and candy companies make an absolute fortune from men who are terrified of letting down their wives, girlfriends, etc. down. I swear I saw men breaking into a cold sweat at the grocery store trying to find the perfect card, from the selection which was left. And it did not seem like there was much left. A couple of sexually suggestive, borderline perverted, cards adorned the shelves next to the scattered "puppy and kitty sharing a valentine moment" cards. Yikes!
Bitter? No, truly I am not. My hubby and I quietly acknowledge the holiday with a little card and maybe some chocolates. But then again, I like chocolate anyday of the year and have gained 20 pounds since college to prove it!
But, I digress.
I think it is a lot of pressure though for people who may not have a romantic "Valentine", don't you think? Think of all the wonderful, single people out there who have to have it shoved in their faces that no one is bringing them a heart shaped box filled with 100 grams of fat!
So, to all of the single Valentines out there today... Happy Valentine's Day.
I have a positive thought for you today...
Would you have really wanted someone to bring you a stuffed panda bear holding a satin heart (hanging on by a thread) which reads "I love you beary much!"? Of course not. But then again, who am I to say?
Regardless, enjoy the day knowing that your family and friends love you very much!
