the day the world went a little bit mental

It seemed like such a normal day

When my eyes adjusted to the light.

I guess it seemed quite normal for a while.

I got dressed and brushed my teeth,

I went my normal way to work.

People spoke in a tongue I understood

And gravity was working in the way it should.

So why were people acting weird

And sending cards and flowers

And pretty chocolate boxes

To the people they seem to hate so much

On every other day?

Valentines Day drives me crazy. I think a lot of it is down to the fact that I am jealous because I’m single and have been forever. But we’ll put that to one side for a moment and look at the bizarre way that some people behave on this day.

I know of a lot of couples who argue like cats and dogs ALL OF THE TIME and yet on this day they are all over Facebook proclaiming their undying love for one another through the medium of soppy posts and pictures. And then there is also the amount of money that they spend on each other when they buy all the gifts and meals out and all the other crap that can go with this day.

It. Is. Crazy.

Yes, I am bitter and jealous, but I sometimes think that the world is a little bit bonkers on February 14th. If you are also feeling bit lonely and sad and pulling your hair out over all of those terrible posts you’re seeing, then I’m with you. And on that note, I’m off out to buy an M&S Love Sausage and cry into a bottle of non-alcoholic wine.

Peace Out

    Good to know I’m not the only one who has always felt this way. Of course, a big part of that is because I’ve been alone for 41 or 42 of the 44 Valentine’s Days of my life (depending on if you count the year when I was kind of seeing someone and got dumped by text a few days after Valentine’s Day as being alone or not). And if you really love someone, you’ll treat them like that every day.
