Hello everyone. Could you smell something in the air this morning? It was LOVE, I think. Or it could have been commercialism, I’m not sure, and the good thing is, I’m definitely not bitter.
Because I’m sick of the marketing emails and posts like “OMG we must be meant to be together because we bought each other the same card”, here’s an open thread for you to write the thing you love the most/hate the most/just something you want to share about 14th February.
I’ll start with a positive and a negative:
1) would whoever sent me that anonymous rose when I was 21 please confess now? I am bored of wondering about the love that we could have shared.
2) a couple of years ago, an old school friend got in touch via Facebook, as old school friends are wont to do. We had got on well so I wasn’t suspicious at all about his motives when he suggested going for a drink. For some dumb reason, the fact that he asked me to go on 14th February didn’t register. Cue one of the most awkward nights of my life, in a restaurant filled with couples, with a man who clearly had a very different idea of what the evening was going to hold to the one I did.
We haven’t spoken since.
