It was yesterday that I realized that I don’t care about Valentine’s Day.
Give me any other holiday, and I’m good to go. I even like Easter.
But Valentine’s Day? It has some kind of messed up messages.
Dear Lonely People –
Feel even lonelier! You’re welcome!
Dear Couples –
Go out to a restaurant that’s super crowded, completely unromantic because of the crowd and the noise and the insanity, and if it’s a really “nice” restaurant, you’re probably paying jacked up prices for a limited menu. Once you’ve suffered through a dinner that is probably not exact the best thing you’ve eaten because the wait and kitchen staff are totally overworked and underpaid, go home exhausted and in a bad. And, hopefully, drunk. Collapse into your bed.
Ah, the romance of Valentine’s Day!
And here are some memes to keep you happy.
(Unfortunately, I did not find any attribution for them, so if they’re yours, please let me know so I can fix that ASAP.)
