William the Poet

Day 6 My Pet Peeve

Ok, well this was easy for me. My pet peeve is Valentines Day.

"Wow" you must be saying, "you don't love anybody." I hear you say.

Oh Contraire'. I just don't think a guy should have to spend outrageous amounts of money on flowers that are marked up 150%, or on boxes of candy, or jewelry and expect me to ohh and aww over it.  I think if you love someone, and I mean REALLY love someone, then you need to be telling that person you love them the other 364 days of the year.

I feel Valentine's day is just a made up holiday by Hallmark, Hershey's, and Floral companies to make as MUCH money as possible and if you DON'T spend a lot of money on someone then you just DON'T love them that much. I think its complete and utter bullshit. I refuse to participate. It also didn't help growing up and having to sign 25 cards for all my little classmates. Including the ones who made my life hell. Teachers forced us to do this so no one felt "Left Out." I knew the cards signed by my enemies were just lip service. I mean come on!!!!

Gag me with a spork... Valentine's Day Blows. If you love people in your lives tell them TODAY not on Feb. 14th. If you wait that long it may be too late.
