A Crappy Valentine's Day?

I wasn't allowed to date when I was living back with my family, years ago, and I believe that this trained me to more than not mind my unattached state later on in life. As a result, I wonder if I'm not one of those rare birds who loves this little second-tier, Hallmark holiday and considers herself to be so lucky that she has so many valentines in her life?

Anyway, this jerk could blow up every florist and chocolate store around and I'd still find a way to celebrate it.

Whatever your state of attachment is, don't get caught up in the stress of commercialism or social mores. Enjoy the day for what it's worth: a naive little trifle where we are sanctioned to be a bit more affectionate or even romantic than usual. Happy Valentine's Day!
