Happy (almost) Valentine’s Day.
I’m not a big fan of this holiday. It has nothing to do with my cynicism. Here’s the deal—I am not really romantic, I don’t need anything, and I like flowers but I feel badly about the migrant workers who pick them. [sad trombone]
I once had a man send me flowers on Valentine’s Day. It was nice — but he was broke, we were about to break up, and I had HR women in my department who were like, “Must be nice to get flowers.” [more sad trombone]
I can’t remember the last time we exchanged gifts on Valentine’s Day, but if I had to ask for something, it might be this.
Or maybe just some chocolate.
You got a sweetheart? You alone? What’s up with your Valentine’s Day?
