Well people - here's my Bucket List or shall I say "Tabo" List. You only live once, so don't think twice.

And Your Point Is?

Let me get this straight. I don't like Valentine's day because I'm a bitter single individual. I don't like Valentine's day because I still have not yet found my true love. I don't like Valentine's day because the ugly colors red and pink are advertised everywhere. I don't like Valentine's day because the local florist delivery trucks are filled with a bunch of long stem roses or floral arrangements. I hate Valentines day because it's a constant reminder that single people are less important than those in a committed relationship. I hate Valentines Day because I feel the pressure of finding my true love rather than just letting my path take me there on it's own. I hate Valentine's day because they advertise the incorrect shape of the human heart. I hate Valentines day because UPS and FedEx trucks should be filled with edible gifts like chocolate rather than killing nature for use of temporary display before it's welted away and tossed in the garbage can. What's the point of it all? Why not celebrate love for one another on a different day? Why not show and express your love on a daily basis. There's no need to spend money. Better yet. Celebrate your love on a day like....umm...DUH! Your anniversary?! With how things are going, we might as well call Valentines Day something more materialistic. Hmm... 'Flower Shop's Day' or ' Dinner for Two Day' or 'Hallmark Day'. What do you think?
