Nope. No date last February 14. In the spirit of true friendship I went to H’s place to sample her French cooking and brought my best dude J with me. J has not been dating anyone in a while. So we had planned to spend the V-day together..whether in protest or in humble solidarity.
Just a quick segue… You know that this whole Valentine’s day celebration was a cleverly crafted marketing strategy by the people of Hallmark Greeting Cards right? Like from decades ago…
Parang nag camp out lang kami with a few other people to let the whole mayhem of Feb 14 pass by like another calamity…ayon na din the theme ng mga single that day…”this too shall pass.” There were provisions for the usual vices, i.e. home cooked meals, wine, beer, smokes, kwento and more wine….
What is probably annoying for affected single people is how now all the malls dub February as the “love month”… So everyone else has to put up with all the heart-shaped everything for the rest of the month. At least 28 days lang guys.
Konti na lang mga dudes, then summer na!! Ahhh yes, the season for the singles naman to party and go to the beach and find other singles strutting their stuff… So hang on, be thankful you didn’t have to go through chocolates and cakes and those valentine’s dinners, so you can easily get back that beach bod in preparation for some proper summer lovin’.
