Valentine's day used to really depress me because for years I was always alone on this day.
Now that I'm happily married, this day depresses me cuz I have to go out and put thought into a present of some sort.
Even though the day was kind of made up by the greeting card companies it's kind of a nice idea, as long as you don't get into the if you really love me you'll get me something bigger than what I got you mode. I like humorous cards, my favorite was one that said:
Thought about you today
Don't think the two are related.
I will admit to being lucky in having a wife like mine, she'd be happy if I came home and gave her a handful of dirt, with her it's mainly the thought that you got something, not what that something is.
