I have a long track record of ruining valentines days. Probably the worst is when I sent my bride-to-be dead black roses. I ordered them from a fresh cut flower place online. I guess they cut them wrong. Instead of telling my fiancee that I loved her, I was sending her a message of death.
One year I didn’t realized that a certain restaurant needed reservations for Valentines day. So after being mocked by the host, I ended up picking up Taco Bell. We used our wedding china and it was actually more romantic than the The Melting Pot could ever be.
One year, I had to visit a client for work. Both of my children had fits of vomiting and diarrhea. I’m still not a fan of VD, so I really don’t do anything. By default it’s shows neglect and is worse than even making an attempt.
