Valentine's Day is nearly here. Are you prepared? Have you done your shopping and reserved your table? Hell no.
I have to admit that I see V-Day as a kid's holiday. Twenty-five years of cute cards, decorated Valentine "mail" boxes, and colorful cupcakes is all I can visualize about that special day. I never was all that romantic and being a teacher leaves me with mixed feelings about Valentine's Day and the other holidays celebrated from September to June.
Yes, I received some very special valentines over the years. My kids managed to surprise me with some great cards. I really don't know the number of times that Memo and I have exchanged cards over the last 18 years. Since I retired from the classroom, I have forgotten V-Day even more.
I don't know what we're doing this year. We'll probably walk to the town square and have dinner at a nice restaurant. That's not so special though, unless we splurge and go to a fancy eatery. Argentinian steaks sound good, don't they?
I doubt that I'll send my guy an e-valentine. It's not too late to go to a card store and find a gringo greeting card......
And would you believe that the Party of Lincoln, the GOP, the lame ass Republicans are pure Valentine Grinches. Leave it to them to spoil a perfectly profitable Hallmark Holiday with this shit.
Well, Happy Valentine's Day, Good People!
