[I'm not sure how anyone could hate a holiday that puts puppies on chocolate boxes. These are 99 cents at Target!]
Dontcha just love Valentine's Day? I used to relish every V-Day in school, in which I would make my own cards and pepper the paper with a lot of vomit-inducing cuteness, like bears hugging or sparkly hearts. (LOVE Valentine's Day.) The other great part about Valentine's Day was looking at all the cards and candies at the end of the day, the same glee and joy felt once you empty out your pillow case full (yes, I was a hardcore trick or treater with a pillow case,) of candy at Halloween. And when I got older (and by older I mean after my awkward stage,) it was a great excuse to get pretty, go on a date, and have boys perform chivalrous acts that I never really fully admit to liking as a feminist...well okay I guess now I'm admitting it. I like having the door opened for me even though I am fully capable of opening my own door. But don't tell anyone.
The boy on the other hand did not grow up cutting up doilies and adding glitter and perfume to envelopes for that extra special something, nor did he like to send his friends candy grams with cute messages attached. In fact he likes to remind me that "Valentine's Day is another way for corporate America to make you spend more than you actually need to" and then he likes to add that "he's not buying flowers or going out that day" in protest of this "unnecessary" holiday that "puts pressure on males everywhere".
So, since I am so obviously not getting a dozen red roses on Valentine's Day, please share your romance with me. What are your plans for Valentine's Day?? Will you be my valentine?
Or, is anyone in agreement with the boy and think Valentine's Day is Stoopid with a capital S?
