The other night, Mr. P and I had a discussion in the car about Valentine's Day. He thinks it's a made-up, consumer holiday. I tend to agree. But, I don't think there's anything wrong with showing or telling somebody you love them, on any day of the year, and if we need a special day to remind us to be grateful for each other, well...what's the problem with that?
I didn't expect any flowers or chocolates or diamonds from my Mr. P for Valentine's Day and, needless to say, he didn't disappoint me. He brought home nothing.
I, on the other hand (being the romantic that I am), emailed him this:
Social Studies/History teacher humour. Maybe you gotta be one of us to find it funny...
Happy Valentine's Day, no matter how you celebrate it (or not).
