Thoughts on Valentines Day

To borrow a quote: “Happy Valentine’s Day! Or, if you’re single, Happy Look At The Flowers and Gifts Delivered To All Your Attached Friends and Coworkers Day!”

I have never liked Valentines Day. I always found it strange that Hallmark decided to celebrate an execution. With the emphasis that the world has on couples and marriage, Valentines Day has always struck me as a day of discrimination designed to make the unattached and alone to feel even worse. The one Valentines Day, however, that I remember with fondness was in either 8th or 9th grade when a friend and classmate, Karl Kuhrman, gave every girl in the grade a flower. No one was forgotten or omitted.

So for those that celebrate, Happy Valentines Day and those that don’t, Happy Monday!!!
