Valentines Day

Feb 16, 2006

Valentines Day is one of those holidays that guys consistently screw up.  One year it’s great; one year it’s not.  Fortunately, Wikipedia has a wonderfully long history of it, which just makes me think the people at Hallmark love this holiday.  Several years ago, a guy name Tom Birdsey created a comparable holiday for men.  Since I’m a vegetarian, it’s only partly relevant for me.  So – this morning – after 9 inches of snow last night, I emerged from the shower, got dressed, and wandered down stairs to clean the snow off my car so I could drive into the office.  Amy was out there cleaning it off – when I shouted out the door “thanks – you’re awesome” – she responded with “happy steak and bj day.”  Amy – you rock.
