When you hear on the radio that it's Valentine's Day on Saturday.
"Oh, no! I forgot it was Valentine's Day this month! I haven't even started to think about what I'm going to get for..."
Gotta get a girlfriend first, mate. Then maybe you can think about what to get her.
Honestly. This is a true story. It happened to me yesterday. And yes, I realize that most men don't start worrying about Valentine's Day until either the night before or the day of. I used to work at a grocery store. The store gets MOBBED by these poor men, desperate to prove to their wives/lovers that they are worthy of continued affection.
I actually hate Valentine's Day for this reason and several others, but if I ever find a woman, I'm positive I will love her, and so I will treat Valentine's Day as if I cared about it, for her sake. So I guess this pre-girlfriend, pre-wife moment of panic is helping me prep for when it actually matters. Right? Right. Patting myself on the back as we speak.
Also, I updated my profile pic. Because the hat just needed to go away.
Also, to those of you whom I have not spoken with in some time, I apologize. Still going through my quarter-life crisis, as I affectionately term this period of difficulty. :) But I am feeling much better these days. Life is a beautiful thing. And I feel like I may be able to write again soon.
As always - my first book is available on Amazon! It's done reasonably well, actually, for zero marketing. And me disappearing off the face of the earth. Ha ha ha... Go check it out. Buy it. Read it. It's a good book.
