Valentines day is upon us once again, and we are faced with that age old question…... Should this be the February 14th that I finally put my head in the oven? I hate to be so gender centric, but ladies this article is for you. Lets talk. Are you single? Are you sad about it? You have all this great lingerie and no one to see it but your cat and your creepy peeping Tom neighbour (who is actually beginning to look a little cute) ?
First of all, Stop crying, your mascara is running and your scaring the children. Second of all put down the pint of chunky monkey and slowly moonwalk away. You’re not helping your arteries or your thighs. Valentines day isn’t what it used to be. It’s not just for couples in the throes of passion and new Romance, It’s become somewhat of a fun and kitchy Hallmark Holiday that includes everyone.
