Another overrated holiday is upon us. I've never understood how a martyred saint's feast day turned into a lovers' holy day of obligation. But it has and is, and we must bear with it or try to ignore it. Not that I'm a total cynic when it comes to romance. Let's just say the banana truck of romance has run me over too many times for me to get very psyched at its appearance and I run like hell to get out of its way.
It's fine for other people. But not for me.
So Happy Valentine's if you like that sort of thing. If you don't, please join me in ignoring the hype and getting on with your day.
