So, today’s the day. That special day. The day when executives at various confectionaries, florists and the Hallmark offices look like this:
That’s right. It’s Valentine’s Day. A day of romance, chocolate and little chalk-like hearts with tiny little messages on them.
But the facts are much more harsh. The divorce rate in America is higher than anywhere else in the world and though the numbers have fallen with a bad economy (which sounds more a practical notion than a romantic one) the chances are the person you’re spending Valentine’s Day with will not be your significant other forever.
As long as I’m trampling on fantasies, Santa isn’t real.
I know, I know. I can hear the naysayers now, claiming I’m just a negative single guy trampling on the notion of true love because I’ve never experienced it myself. But that’s not true. I believe, as much as anyone, that my dream girl is out there, waiting for me. I’m sure of it.
