Romance and Onions
What’s the point of Valentine’s day? Why have one day out of the year designated to love? To support Hallmark and Chocolatiers everywhere? So many people this time of year shun the decorations and celebrations.
Here’s my thinking. Valentine’s day is like onions.
Nothing makes chocolate taste better, or roses smell better, than after eating or smelling onions. In fact, I agree with the “Hallmark holiday” Mentality which basically debunks Valentine’s day as a “real” holiday. Except, I’m GLAD to support chocolatiers and flower shops everywhere! We as a society get so busy, and yet so stagnant in life that everyday is starting to taste like onions. Why not make the 14th of EVERY MONTH Valentine’s day?
Many of us need that specific day to focus on our love and put our desires out there for potential victims, er, beaus. Life takes us out of our love element, and stress makes us push away affection; which, in fact, is the best cure for the stress we have! So forget your spite, forget your angst toward the marketing of modern America, and forget how lonely you may be. Find someone upon whom you can shower your affections. Ladies, bring some bacon to your favorite guy at work or school. Men, get some chocolates or flowers for that girl at work who has been working late to finish a project. You don’t have to ask this person to marry you, you just need to bring affection into their life. You will feel better, and so will they.
