February. The month of love . . . and all I can think about is the movie, “I Hate Valentine’s Day.” It was hilarious! I enjoyed it terribly when I watched it via Netflix a few months ago. I found myself being in love with love ( . . . and of course, being in a newly committed relationship, my heart was all aflutter).
So in five days – the big day – and silly me, with high hopes and high expectations, thought this year would be different as the first Valentines with my love. I’d actually have someone to be lovey-dovey with for Valentine’s Day this year instead of dismissing it and bypassing it as a “not-for-me holiday.”
However, the Valentine’s Day event could still be a possibly non-event because of recent events that have unfurled . . .it may not be a day of my dreams, after all.
No, I didn’t do anything prematurely like buy tickets and plan out an entire date night with my Boo*, but I’d imagine that it would and should . . . looking forward to it being something special.
*Tangent: According to the Urban Dictionary: boo
1) boyfriend or girlfriend 2) a word to scare people
Why the cautionary tone however? Because plans never work the way you think. Are you optimistic or pessimistic when it comes to love or Valentine’s Day?
