Hey There! It’s Valentines Day!
Whether you’ve been struck by that little bastard’s arrow or are currently painting a bulls-eye over your heart, I think we can all agree that February 14th is a day for love. The best kind of love – manufactured love! You know, candy hearts that ask the consumer to “Be Mine” and shit….. Cause that’s romantic. Hey, let’s purchase a card that declares how much more I love you than yesterday or tomorrow – cause, you know, it’s the one day I get to tell you. And by the way, it’s that time of the month so…Bitch! Better buy me some chocolate….
Funny that the “most romantic” day of the year is named for a Catholic saint who defied the rules of Rome at the time and was put to death – publicly – for doing so. Sure, he was performing marriages against the wishes of the Roman Emperor at the time so I guess that’s kind of romantic, in a sick and twisted I-know-if-I-get-caught-I-will-be-put-to-death kind of way.
I’d love to see some fabulous Biblical FanFic based on St. Valentine, a priest with a bleeding heart (literally), or Cupid. Ok, granted, Cupid isn’t as biblical as, say, Mary and Joseph but wouldn’t it be funny to read a story of a rogue Cupid? Cupid Gone Wild, if you will. Just the thought of that chubby little baby angel wreaking havoc on all the singles in the downtown area gives me a case of the giggles!
Then again – I’d like to see Cupid all grown up….
I’m sorry, what? Did you say something????
Maybe it doesn’t have to be funny – maybe Cupid’s pissed off and breaks the Valentine’s Day Rules (I don’t know what those rules are, they’re up to you – the writer!)
I’ll leave you with this cool collage-type photo I found at http://failblog.cheezburger.com/dating/tag/valentines-day and ask you –
HAPPY VALENTINE”S DAY!
(just so ya’ know, I actually enjoy Valentine’s Day – the hubs and I make a big deal out of it and celebrate with my two boys)
