I survived VD

At 12:15 this morning I had a revelation. I had survived Valentines Day or as I call it VD. It isn’t that I am opposed to romance or naked babies randomly shooting archery at unsuspecting strangers. But I am opposed to spending the week prior to VD being constantly bombarded by every TV, newspaper and radio telling me that I am obligated to have a date and buy gifts and flowers. I am not against dating and I don’t mind buying gifts and flowers – as a matter of fact I gave a friend of mine some flowers, (OK it was actually a plant but it had flowers on it.) but I did it because I wanted to and not because I had to. So now I have survived VD Who knows maybe next year I will be able to share VD with someone special. We should all be so lucky.

I just wanted to say thank you for the gifts and flower...It was very considerate of you but it took me a bit off guard.
Interesting blog as well. :)

Catching someone off guard is half the fun of gift giving. If you expect it you are disappointed if you dont get it.
