On the topic of Valentine's Day

Today is valentine’s day. I am not, in any way, shape or form, sentimental, mooshy or lovey-dovey. I got my BF a card that, when you open it, manically expounds on the excellence of candy. I also got him a bag of truffles, and a 12 month xbox 360 live subscription. Because I rock.

So I get to work, incident-free, and everyone in the department is wearing pink or red, smiling, saying Happy Valentine’s Day! And I swear, cartoon hearts and sparrows are floating in the air. Then I get to my office, where everyone has taken great care to NOT wear happy, love colors. Black and brown are everywhere. It’s quite gloomy. Our office has collectively, unconsciously told Valentine’s Day that it’s an asshole, and that it can go bark up another tree.

It’s times like these that I love my co-workers. But it’s love completely lacking in cartoon hearts and sparrows. Maybe it has cartoon skulls and crossbones. Yeah, that seems more like it.
