It’s Valentines Day, Apparently!
Stephen called me today at work and said “Happy Valentines Day!”.
Huh? Valen-whats it now?? Day? Today? OH!! That. I had forgotten.
This is just not a big deal to me. Sure I’d like some flowers or chocolate or chocolate flowers, but wouldn’t I every day? (answer: yes) Even after I figured out that today is V-day, I was monumentally confused by the special Google logo of the day and didn’t figure it out till’ just now.
I’ll probably forget again in a little while, and when someone in the office says something like “got a hot date tonight?” with a wink and a grin, I’ll end up pondering this bizarre query for a good 5 minutes before I remember again that today is a holiday.
I know not everyone has someone to celebrate with and this is a crappy day for some people, and that a lot of people love Valentines, and a few don’t care either way, like me… so to all of you-
Happy Valentines Day!!
Go do something that makes you happy today.
