I know Valentines Day was sooo two days ago but bear with me and my thoughts on this overrated and ridiculous holiday (yeah, I don't like it). Valentines Day is the holiday of chocolate, red, pink, fluffy teddy bears, gaudy hearts and love. WalMart is literally iced in red and pink decor from as soon as the Christmas holiday is over to the actual Valentines Day. For some reason every other business thinks they must follow WalMart's "standard" and also douse themselves in the red and pink standard. By the time Valentines Day has actually arrived one is so sick of chocolate, red, pink, fluffy teddy bears, gaudy hearts and love that they are seriously considering celebrating Singles' Awareness Day with salad, blue, green, slimy frogs, brains and common sense.Actually, that doesn't sound too bad. Salad- check, blue- check, green- not my favorite but it's okay so check, slimy frogs- again not my favorite but anything is better then fluffy teddy bears, brains- Oh yeah!, and common sense- most definitely. Singles' Awareness Day here I come. :)
