When I was teenager I would dream of the school's hottest dude giving me any sign of interest; a smile, flowers, a card telling me he can't live without me...you know, whatever. Truth is it never happened. Doubt the dude had the brain capacity to think of anyone other than himself so it was all for the best. Gawd, I hated high school.
Moving on. The hubs and I don't celebrate Valentine's day. We acknowledge it but don't buy into all the buying of crap neither of us need. We're too broke for shit.
Things that really annoy me about V-day are...
Stuffed animals. Ick. They're cute but if you're not 12 or under, you have zero use for them.
Roses are red and beautiful but on V-day they're way too damn expensive. Instead of shelling out $80 for flowers that are going to die in less than a week how about you just hand me the cash. Yay, cash!
Crowded-ass-restaurants. I need my elbow room so even attempting to eat out on V-day is a huge no-no. Take out is the way to go, and not just because it'll be half the price.
Things I love...
Seeing and feeling the love in the air. I'm sure it's just in my head but it seems like people are a little more affectionate towards one another on this day. I'm all for it, as long as the clothes stays on and I don't witness tongues flying. *barf*
