So it happens to also be February 14. So what? Just so we're clear, this is not a day for love just because Hallmark says so. Many other things have happened on this day, and plenty of them were violent.
Look, don't get me wrong. Businesses need to make money, keep the economy strong, blah, blah, blah. But why is it such a big deal to show your love on this day? Do you not love your spouse/sig. other every other day of the year? I do. I love him every day. I tell him every day. And that's why today is just Wednesday. I told him not to waste money on the hype. Everything that he gives me on a daily basis is more special, more romantic, and more loving than some forced flowers or candy just becuase big business says he should.
No amount of chocolate or flowers will ever be better than the sparkle in his eyes when he smiles at me, the crappy living situation he rescued me from, the care and patience he shows towards my daughter or his half-asleep hugs when I leave for work in the morning. Love didn't begin on February 14 and it doesn't end on February 15. It's 24/7, 365 for those who are really in it.
So yeah, go blow all your cash on overpriced candy and flowers today, but remember. If you love him/her, spontaneous romance is more likely to be looked upon as special than today's efforts. But that's just my opinion.
I LOVE YOU BABE! Happy Wednesday.
