And upon confessing as much to my sister today, I received the following email from her:
"oh bearca, i am so sad that YOU ARE ONE OF THEM. a valentine's day grinch. if i hear ONE MORE PERSON go on about how valentine's day was invented by marketers and money grubbers who want to rake us over the coals under the guise of love and romance i am going to PUKE.
GET IN THE FREAKING SPIRIT! i think this holiday is so fun."
Ain't nothing better on Valentine's Day than getting berated by the ones you love!
