Marge: Barnacle Bill's Home Pregnancy Test? Homer, shouldn't we have gone with a better-known brand?
Homer: But Marge, this one came with a corn-cob pipe!
Marge: [reading from the test box] "Ahoy, Maties! If the water turns blue, a baby for you! If purple ye see, no baby thar be!"
Homer: So, which is it? Blue or purple?
Marge: "If ye test should fail, to a doctor set sail!"
I hate how there's so much negativeness surrounding Valentine's Day. To me, Valentine's Day is about love... not just romantic love, but any kind of love. It's a day to let everyone you love know what they mean to you, esp. if you are bad about doing it all through the year. I like to let everyone know that I care about them today, including my friends and family. That is what I was doing here. Just letting everyone here know that they are loved. That's all.
I get what you are saying Rainfully, but my feeling is that we shouldn't need a special day for it, we should be sharing our love with those we care about on a daily basis. It is much more special, in my opinion, to reciece a little reminder that you are loved on some random day than it is to deal with the expectations surrounding V-day. I'm just not a fan of the holiday because it almost never turns out well. I could easily go into rant mode and list all the reasons I feel this way, but I have decided not to soil your Happy V-Day thread with such unpleasantries. So thank you for the kind greeting and happy Valentines day to you also.
