Garth Brooks: People loving people is the enemy of everything that’s evil.
How did you celebrate Valentine’s Day? A coworker made chocolate-covered double-stuff Oreos on a stick for the office. I didn’t get to have one, but how can you go wrong?
I’ve been amused reading some comments about today’s “holiday.” For instance, today is the day to enjoy “self-kissing.” It’s not as sad as it sounds. This is when you treat yourself on V-Day (think: flowers, lingerie, chocolate). What could be better than buying flowers for yourself?
Did you know is also known as “National Eat Chocolate in Stretchy Pants Day”? After buying yourself flowers, could there be anything better than eating bon bons in yoga pants?
Valentine’s Day has never been a big deal for me. I try to embrace the holiday and be more positive. But let’s call it like it is. Valentine’s Day could just as easily be called any number of the following names:
- Raised Expectations Day
- Feel Inadequate About Your Love Life Day
- Drink Alone With Ice Cream Day
- I Swear To God If My My Coworker Gets One More Bouquet Of Flowers I’m Going To Murder Her Day
- Chocolate Sale at CVS Eve
I know what I’m doing tomorrow morning. Stocking up on chocolate, of course!
