OK, here it is. Valentine’s Day is a load of crap. If one is truly in love with someone, he or she shouldn’t need a greeting card holiday in order to express that love. Each day should be a reaffirmation of unwavering love for his or her counterpart. A red card and a box of chocolates done solely out of habit is trite and should be unnecessary, or perhaps even insulting.
Just the same, congrats to all those lucky couples out there who share an open and trusting relationship filled with honesty, integrity, and understanding (and proximity). I have a math test for which to study.
