Seriously - I just don't get the whole valentines day thing. I just don't get it.
J and I are of like mind here. Just like we think New Years Eve is like amateur night for drinking (for the people who only get out and party once a year) - we think think valentines day is like amateur day for romance - for people who don't get any romance in their lives every other day of the year. J and I have a pretty romantic existence most of the time - so we just don't feel the need for it. Tonight we will be going to our favorite local pub to meet some friends for a burger - as we have been doing every wednesday night for the last month or so.
So, ok fine. Some people feel the need to rustle up some romance for their sweetie - or for someone they would like to be their sweetie. I can sort of go along, if that's important to you. It just isn't to us. But beyond that? for people who aren't your sweetie?
My mother just left me a voice mail. To tell me happy valentines day. But also to remind me to call my grandmother and wish her a happy valentines day. "it's very important to her".
HUH? This is where I am just not able to stretch my imagination. I thought V-day was a 'romantic' holiday. I mean - I love my grandma. But not romantically.
can somebody explain this to me??
(oh - and - the pukiness continues. I think the mere smell of roses and chocolate would make me want to barf.)
