My everyday Valentine


When I was a larva, I had to go through the exercise of exchanging valentines with my classmates. People I didn’t know, people who didn’t know me. It was always a painful exercise, because it was obvious that no one would ever have given me a valentine by choice. Thankfully after a few years, that stopped, and I was happily valentine-free for decades.

Now I am married and have a wonderful wife to exchange valentines with every year. It’s really the first period in this life where I’ve enjoyed Valentine’s Day. I told her that. It seemed to make her sad, but that wasn’t my intention. It really is nice to have her, to have a valentine of my very own, every day, and especially on Valentine’s Day.

We took Valentine’s Day off. We went to the beach, got sunburned, and found a huge number of fossils. We love our beach for its fossils. We brought home a bucket’s worth yesterday.

It was a good Valentine’s Day.

    Valentine’s Day AKA SAD, Singles Alone Day. I Just love holidays that make people feel even more depressed.

    Valentine’s Day is not such a big deal here in Oz. And i think that’s a good thing :-)

    I’m so glad you found your Valentine and that you still love her even when she holds onto the TV remote and won’t let it go and makes you watch the Grammys. THAT’S love.

    Sounds like a wonderful day. I’m glad you met your Valentine. :)
