I know it’s gotten totally cliché to rant and say you hate Valentine’s, so I’ll simply state that I’m not a fan. As far as I’m concerned, the best thing about Valentine’s Day is the 30 Rock episodes that have come out of it. But other than that… yeah, I’m good. I’m just not super thrilled about Red and Pink deciding to throw a month-long kegger and then proceeding to puke on everything in sight.
But in an effort not to be a weird bitter misanthrope (constant battle, yay!), I’m going to take this Hallmark-Holiday opportunity to list some of the things for which I’m grateful. And every time I see Cupid wings today, I will bite my tongue and mentally add to the list.
- My writing group members, who always provide great feedback and support (and the occasional kick in the ass).
- My blonde BFF, the yang to my yin, who pushes and challenges me.
- This 30 Rock clip:
- My husband, for making me breakfast tacos every Saturday morning.
- Quiet mornings with a moment for myself.
Fellow Valentine’s non-fans, I KNOW YOU’RE OUT THERE. Join me in some gratitude What are you grateful for right now?
