It's hard not to be bitter and jaded on a day like today. A whole day devoted to lover's and couples. Yuk! (Read...I'm ridiculously jealous). When will I get my turn? Everywhere I look...TV, radio, work, Facebook, blogs, etc. everyone is talking about Valentine's Day. Is there a phrase like "bah humbug" that could be used on a day like today?
There is nothing worse than seeing happy people. I know I should be joyful for them and happy that they have found love. But wow, I have got a great big case of the green eyed monster of envy today. Being single on Valentine's day makes me feel broken, like there is something terribly wrong with me. I guess the only good part of the day is that since I won't be getting a heart shaped box of chocolates from my love today, I won't have to worry about the weight gain.
OK, girls I have to write a tiny little update here...just when I thought that I hated Valentine's Day...the hottie in a uniform at work told me Happy Valentine's Day today...sigh. :) Now to figure out does that mean something? Am I reading too much into our little interactions in the hallway? At any rate it was sweet and made me smile.
