There’s no avoiding it: today is Valentine’s Day. Every time I hit the grocery store, CVS or even the hardware store, I’m smacked in the face with a plethora of red, white and pink items.
You wanna’ make your sweetie swoon? Buy her a pink hammer! Not squishy feely enough? How about a box of high-fructose corn syrup-laden, genetically modified sickly sweet cupcakes? Yum!
Truth is, I do not celebrate this so-called holiday. As far as I can tell, it’s really just another reason for the public to buy, buy, buy. And those lotharios who dare buck convention and go for something a little less commercial? Well, come Tuesday they’ll be changing their Facebook profiles to “single.”
