It’s Valentine’s Day!
Yeah, whatever. I’ve never been a big fan of this day. And surely that’s in large part because I’ve almost always been partner-less on February 14th, and the existence of this day has always seemed like a way the cosmos hangs a neon “YOU’RE ALONE” sign over my head every year. Feh.
But at the same time, I am amused by Valentine’s Day, by the weight and importance we give it, by the way people tie themselves in knots trying to get it ‘right’ … whatever that’s supposed to mean. Shouldn’t we just love our loves all year round? How are our feelings any more or less true or meaningful or powerful because we buy flowers or chocolate or whatever?
But sometimes it’s nice to have an excuse to let folks know what’s in my heart, so I’m glad to have found the most hysterical most adorable perfect means of doing just that:
Thanks, Alejna, for letting me share your excellent Phoebe card!
