Here we are at another Topic Thursday. By this time next week, Valentine's Day will have come and gone. I'm assuming that we're all romantics since we read that genre until our eyes are red and swollen right? Some of us are happily in love, others are not but remain hopeful. So let me ask you this: Is Valentine's Day a real holiday to you? Is it a gifting holiday?
I remember when I was younger, a lot of the girls at my work would get flowers from their loved ones and I would NAG my husband to send me something just so I could be equal. But if you have to ask for it, does it count? I always wanted him to do something special, but not because I needed him to do something to show me he cared, but ony to show OTHER people he cared. Now that I'm older and wiser, now I truly could care less. Every once in a while, I'll see a story that I think is sweet and romantic on Valentine's Day, but for the most part, it's just another day on the calendar for me.
However, on the off chance that my husband should see this and should want to surprise me with something really cool? An Amazon or Barnes and Noble GC would be FABULOUS! ::wink, wink::
