It is Valentine’s Day today...or how we Mexicans know it as “Dia del Amor y la Amistad”. Yes we acknowledge friendship, separately. Why we separate love and friendship (because clearly the "Amor" part in that is not only for romantic partners, but also for parental, siblings, coworkers, extramarital affair lovers, pets, grandparents, neighbors, etc. etc.) probably makes more sense to me now than say a year and a half ago…but that is another hilarious story for a whole ‘notha blog, another time.
The purpose of this blog is not only to wish everyone a Happy V-day…and for some of you jerks, a VD day. Yeah I said it, what! But really to express something that kinda bugs me come every Valentine’s Day. No, it is not the overly exaggerated display of love and “I love you” products nearly everywhere you go. Nor is it seeing everyone get gifts and calls and gifts and candy and did I mention gifts from their loved ones. No, I do not feel anything negative or sad towards Valentine’s Day. This is not a sad day for me, what with being single. I don’t feel especially losery and lonely and that no one loves me today just because of what the day represents. I mean I feel that every day, rain or shine. Pffft.
In all seriousness now, my problem is kinda with the complainers. The “This isn’t a real holiday. It was created by card companies” people. To them I ask: What is so wrong with that? What is so wrong with promoting love and affection and gift giving if only for at least one day of the year?... and yes, most will say “you don’t have to wait for Valentine’s Day to show your love. You should do that every day." Well, yeah, no one does that every day, especially the people saying that. When was the last time you sent chocolates or flowers or an “I love you” teddy to your spouse, mom, best friend, etc. ‘just because’ and not on a day that happened to be an anniversary, or birthday, or Xmas? Or because you weren’t looking for a potential pelvic buddy? or because you wanted to get out of the dog house? Yeah, I didn’t think so.
So to all you haters of Valentine’s Day I say, quit being a sour puss. I'm sure there's at least someone out there who loves you. That's one more person then the number of people who love me. Womp Womp *gulp gulp* Pffft! If you only hate on the holiday because you are too cheap for a gift, you don’t have to buy things. Just be nice, creative, kinky, or all of the above.
And with that, I would like to wish a happy Valentine’s Day to all, and to all a good night…and to some a great night *bah wah chika bah wah*.
All my love,
P.S. I understand it can be a difficult day, dare I say, scary for some of you independent girls out there, but fear not. Here's a "How to" for yous...
