Valentine's Day

A figurative fly on the wall might expect me to say that I love Valentine's Day, because we had a great day and an amazing night! But I won't credit that to Valentine's Day. Of all of the "Hallmark holidays," this is one of the most irritating. (And before anyone tells me it's an old tradition and wasn't invented by Hallmark or their ilk, yes, I know, but I still think of it as one of those types of holidays.)

People who are truly in love don't need a special day to show it. They show it every day, in their words and actions. That may sound sappy, but it's true.

And as far as sex goes, if you need a special day to get some, something has gone wrong. I'm not saying we're as active as we were when we were a new couple (some things just can't be recreated), but we still have a good sex life. If I had to wait for a particular holiday for anything to happen, there would be other things to worry about!

But it's not just about sex, right? It's about romance! *gag* Puh-leeze. Getting people to buy a diamond or roses or whatever isn't romance. It's commerce.

Okay, I'll stop. Thank you for letting me vent my annoyance. Now I'll go have breakfast and, after that, I'm going to "be romantic" with my husband. Yes, even though it's not Valentine's Day anymore. I hope that doesn't break any rules!

Yeah, but Valentines day is when all the hot red sexy lingerie comes out.

I completely agree with your rant.

Footed: And do you look good in sexy red lingerie? ;)

Todd: Exactly!

ATG: Then I know I'm on target! (Great thinks mind alike, and all that.) ;)

You go ahead and "break" those "rules". I agree that every day should be Valentine's Day!
