I hope you and your loved one(s) found a way to express yourselves in a less-than-consumerish fashion on this dorky, but harmless holiday. For us, the big evening involved me riding down the hill for take-out Thai, and a less-cheap-than-normal bottle of wine. Good times.
This may surprise some of you, but I really enjoy Valentine’s day. I have wonderful, cycling wife that I love dearly; I relish any excuse to celebrate our fantastic relationship (even though she thinks Valentine’s day is stupid). Factor in the hour I spent bike commuting to and from work and I think that makes for a pretty damn good day.
Full disclosure: I saw one of our readers/neighbors as I rode into work this morning. He said that he preferred Anne’s posts because she was more positive. Since I’m nothing if not a crowd pleaser, consider this my effort to be a good, perky, American (even though it’s debatable how good that really is). So, how’d I do, Dave?
Happy Valentine’s Day.
