The Whys Guy Changes His Anti-Valentine's Day Stance
Okay—so last year, I made my feelings about Valentine's Day pretty clear. If you missed it or you don't want to click on the link, I can sum those feelings up in one word: negative. This year, I'm trying to challenge my accepted prejudices against Hallmark's biggest holiday and see if I can't find a little natural romance amidst all the junk pushed on me February 14th by the military-industrial-romance complex.
Maybe I'm getting off to a bad start with this challenging-my-preconceived-notions thing. It's just that I want to do the Valentine's Day thing, but I don't want Big Romance to get its hooks into me the way Big Tobacco did.
So I need your help, all seven of you. I'm at a loss for what to actually do to make this a special Valentine's day for my wife Karel. I need suggestions that would be fun and romantic and that she would enjoy, and that don't involve cards, or stale chocolate, or overpriced flowers, or stuffed animals. Wine is fine. I want to get in the spirit without getting cliche, or maybe I should get cliché. Maybe that's the point, and I'm missing it.
As you can see I'm at a loss, so any and all input is greatly appreciated. I would love to hear what's worked for you on V-Days in the past (as opposed to VJ Days in the past—I don't have time to organize a parade), what you've always imagined or hoped for, or what I should stay the hell away from. All advice and ideas will be greatly appreciated. And get this: I promise to try one of your ideas and report back.
So start suggesting! And thanks in advance for all your help.
