Happy Valentine’s Day

Funny thing, this Valentine’s Day. It comes around every 365 days, and though you know it’s coming up, it always hits you like a hammer when it’s time. – When I walked into Target last night, I felt like in a slasher movie for all the blood red V-Day stuff packing the shelves with droves of last-minute shoppers tearing through the aisles gobbling up Hershey’s XXL love potion sweets. It’s amazing how the makers of sweets, candy, chocolate, cards, ribbons, gifts bags, and other fairly useless junk have been able to instill this sense of obligation – do or die – in people not to forget about V-Day, and to be sure to shower their loved ones or those to whom they’d like to profess their love and affection with all kinds of cheap crap colored red ! Whoever started this nonsense of buying a $3.99 disgustingly generic Hallmark card to tell someone “I love you”. – Yuck !
