Feel the Love!
I am happy to post blogs about real holidays like Halloween, Thanksgiving, Christmas, etc. However, there is one "Holiday" that I dislike mentioning. It is the one that is upon us: VALENTINE'S DAY.
I have quite a few problems with this Holiday. Instead of reiterating my gripes with this alleged Holiday, please go to the post here , and the other one here , for my feelings on this "celebration". In my humble opinion, these posts are chock full of helpful reflections on the true meaning and presumed importance of this Holiday.
For those of you in a happy relationship, good for you! Celebrate this day if you like, but I'm sure you already never let a day go by without letting your loved one know how special he/she/it is to you. Good for you! That's how it should be.
As for all you "lonely" people, fret not: There IS someone out there for everyone! The thing is though, you have to make an effort to meet them. That means you'll have to actually leave the house, and have interactions with other members of the human race. Oh, and you should bathe regularly and not act like a jerk (Unless of course, your true love is attracted to jerks. In that case, jerk away! Hmm... That came out wrong.). Also, don't hold others up to impossible standards, and don't think romance happens the way it does in the movies. It doesn't.
I hope you enjoyed today's post and cartoon. This is the last time (barring the unforeseen!) I will ever mention this day on my blog.
Happy Valentine's Day, all!
