Hey guys, guess what I don’t care about at all? Valentine’s Day. Unless of course I’m surrounded by people who are getting flowers and stuff. Then I get all annoyed at Keith for ignoring something I told him to ignore. I mean, I think a day devoted to being cute and sweet is awesome, and I would NEVER turn away chocolates or flowers or sweet notes EVER. I just never really feel like doing Valentine’s Day.
Of course if something incredible were to happen, I guess I would change my mind. Like, obviously, if you’re proposed to that day (by someone you want to marry) then, duh, Valentine’s Day becomes AMAZING. Or if you win a car or free food or get whisked away to a tropical place, then I’ll just shut up. But mostly, I give it a big ‘Eh’.
I do really like red and pink together, though, and I get to see a lot of it around this time of year. No complaints there. I don’t recall ever going on a Valentine’s date (ohmigod, is this why I hate it??), but if I did, I’d wear something pink with bright red lipstick. Hahaha! No I wouldn’t, that would be insane on actual Valentine’s Day, right? Would it? I have no idea, because I’m so far removed from this culture.
I think maybe the best Valentine gift I’ve ever received was my jadeite batter bowl. And I got it from a truly apathetic (now ex-) boyfriend who gifted it only because I nagged him about it for WEEKS. Whatever. I didn’t feel guilty at all, because he didn’t care about me and at least I got an awesome bowl out of a pointless relationship.
This post is getting weird.
Which is fitting, because Valentine’s Day is weird.
Except the cute and sweet part – I like that. So I wish you a very happy day of cute and sweet things, all completely random and surprising. LOVE YOU! xoxo
