I am aware that this is unusual, but I ♥ Valentine’s Day. I know, I know, aka: “Single Awareness Day.” I realize it’s the holiday that everyone loves to complain about. I am also aware that it is not a break holiday, so you don’t even get a stikin’ day off of work or school for it. But… hear me out.
Valentine’s Day has the BEST colors. Pink, yes, and RED. All that red holiday fashion you were wearing for Christmas? Here is your legit excuse to put it all back on again, just skip the green Christmas tree earrings.
Valentine’s day is a great excuse to eat CHOCOLATE. Do yourself a favor, if your partner asks if you want anything for Valentine’s Day, don’t you DARE say, “Oh, nothing.” FIRST of all, he will probably take you literally since, ya know, he’s not a mind reader. And SECONDLY, read the first sentence of this paragraph again. (It tastes even better when it’s a gift, therefore FREE.)
ANY excuse to buy some sexy under pieces is a good one in my book. Even if your version of “sexy” is heart-patterned boxer shorts, it’s still an excuse, right?
Valentine’s Day parties are more fun, dammit, if you ARE single. You can’t POSSIBLY be the ONLY single person you know. So stop feeling sorry for yourself and get all of your other single friends together to go to some parties. At one of my favorite Valentine’s Day parties, we hung dollar store undergarments all over the walls, and watched Rocky Horror Picture Show. I can’t imagine feeling somber while enjoying a day like that.
So have I convinced you yet? If not, don’t you worry, I’ll be sure to try again next year.
