|My niece as Junice from SNL! Now, that's awkward.|
Oh, how I love this holiday! And, always have, though for years I hid it behind sarcastic comments and condescending smirks. I was a self-proclaimed love-hater. But it was always a mask that I wore to hide my true, love-sick, sappy self.
I couldn't kid myself, though. Seriously, if you sob over your book when Anne Shirley and Gilbert Blythe FINALLY get together, you are definitely a romantic sap. I couldn't deny it. And, while I loved love in books, movies, songs, etc, my own love life was quite ridiculous. Do you remember when I told you about it last Valentines? Here it is again for you reading pleasure! (Or displeasure if "awkward" makes you squirm...ha)
So, whether you are celebrating this Valentines with a loved one, watching sappy movies with the girls and proudly exclaiming "single's awareness day!" or, if you secretly hope and wish for the day that you will have a best love of your own, maybe my dysfunction will give you a laugh and a little hope. (Or maybe you'll just think I'm an idiot...ha, I guess that's ok too.)
Here it is:

It's pretty embarrassing. Ha!
