Happy Made Up Holiday………..Suckers!!!!!!!

February 14th….Valentine’s Day.  The one day a year where thousands upon thousands of men run out and spend millions of dollars in hope of appearing “romantic”.  My thoughts………Bullshit!

The way I figure it, I don’t need a calendar or a greeting card company to tell me when I need to be romantic.  In this day and age, it’s already hard enough to “impress” someone, without a big dollar company (or a materialistic bitch) telling you “on this day, you better have something nice for me or we are soooo done”.  As the saying goes, “where’s the love”?

You want to hear romantic…try this.  How about bringing roses home on June 5th…for no good reason.  Or how about getting up one weekend in early October and driving through the northeast country side to check out the leaves.  Or maybe, one Friday night, loading up the old lady and taking here to Denny’s for a nice dinner then heading out to the tractor pulls or wrestling matches (ok, that one is for Southern-romantics).

I know what some of you are thinking.  “Brian, you don’t celebrate Valentine’s Day?  You’re not romantic.  Maybe that’s why you are single”.  Look, you are right, I don’t believe in Valentine’s Day.  Of course, I don’t believe in Santa Claus either, but that doesn’t mean I don’t get presents at Christmas….if you know what I mean. 

The bottom line is this….don’t let outside sources influence your’re thinking….whether it be in the romance, finance, or any ‘nance department.  Being romantic ought to come natural.  You either are or you are not. 

Until next time…drinks are on me,
