This Saturday, I plan on changing up my standard behaviors of drinking wine in bed watching Sex and the City re-runs, by doing the same thing with one of my best friends in our underwear. That’s right, it’s Valentine’s Day (or as it’s been renamed, Singles’ Awareness Day). Truth be told, I love red roses– so long as there isn’t one single sprig of baby’s breath within a five mile radius. I also love lingerie, chocolate, gifts, and well, love. I don’t actually have a problem with the holiday other than the fact that it’s a commercially manufactured one and it’s still not legal to marry your pet as there are not really any other suitable males in my life to spend February 14th with.
It seems a little counterintuitive to combine wearing skimpy lingerie while overindulging in chocolate, but then again, I enjoy all my meals in bed, so I’m in. If you don’t have a significant other, or even if you do, I think Valentine’s Day is a great a day as any to show yourself a little bit of love.
