Remember, our dearest February 14th doesn’t have to just be about love. It can be about remembering the Canadian Asbestos Strike, the birth of Anna Howard Shaw, or the first diesel-powered submarine.
Or, you could simply be thankful this is (or isn’t) waiting for you at home after work. (Only if he had a good cabernet sauvignon)
Or maybe you’re super in love and this is going to be your heart all night long.
Or maybe you’re fresh out of a crummy relationship, and you’d rather pull one of these.
Or maybe you’ll be sharing these with a “friend”.
Or maybe you’ll simply curl up on the couch and remember that, more than anyone, the Hoff still loves you.
No matter what your status is on Valentine’s day, just know that it’s a day to celebrate all kinds of love. Even if it’s your undying love for David Hasselhoff circa his Baywatch years, or wearing a single pair of fundies.
Valentine’s Day dos for everyone:
Do Watch: 30 Rock, Parks and Recreation, Downton Abbey, The Walking Dead, Clueless, Breakfast at Tiffany’s, The Night of the Living Dead
Do Eat: Thai, Italian, French
Do Drink: Red wine, but beware of wine lips
Do for Dessert: Chocolate or whatever is best on the menu (or in the freezer)
Do Sing and Dance: Yeah, you heard me. Have fun. It’s simply a delight!
Valentine’s Day don’ts for everyone:
Don’t Watch: A documentary on civil war or Sophie’s Choice
Don’t Eat: Indian, hamburgers, chicken
Don’t Drink: too much. It’s a Tuesday… and possibly a date!
Don’t for Dessert: I’m drawing a blank.
Don’t Sing and Dance: If your dance moves have gotten you dumped before, start the place on fire and GTFO. And for the love of God, if you must dance, don’t do the sprinkler or any awful straight man dance like that. Nobody thinks it’s spontaneous and carefree. Nobody.
