Valentines Day – Because Life isn’t Complicated Enough

"I was nauseous and tingly all over. I was either in love or I had smallpox!" - Woody Allen

I see the signs - pink and red M&Ms; crowds at Victoria’s Secret; teddy bears wearing “I wuv you;” heart shaped … EVERYTHING! Valentines Day must be approaching. 

Some historians believe that Valentine's Day is celebrated in mid-February to mark the anniversary of St. Valentine's martyrdom. Love and martyrdom, huh? Seems about right based on the lyrics in our most popular love songs.

Consider When a Man Loves a Woman. Tossing friends aside, destitution and not having enough sense to come in out of the rain – all in the name of love. I’d like to suggest that we rename it, When a Man Becomes So Neurotically Obsessed that He Loses all Respectability by Acting Like a Buffoon.

Then there’s Every Breath You Take – the ramblings of a stalker / peeper. I’d call that one Creepy Psycho Ex-boyfriend Gone Completely Berzerk. Is this really our idea of love? God, I hope not.

Well, for those of you in less psychotic relationships - you know, the kind, caring and egalitarian ones, we wish you Happy Valentines Day. For the rest of us … well, there’s vodka. And our girlfriends.

But don’t sit home alone of Valentines Day. Invite your girlfriends over for a board game night. Two really fun games made especially for girlfriends are Girlfriends Intuition (click HERE for description) and What’s a Dame to Do? (click HERE for description). Or create your own games like Name That Ex or The Anti-Valentines Scavenger Hunt. Serve lots of chocolate and screw the calories for one night! 

Now give us some of YOUR ideas!
