This is the first time in many years that I have worn pink or red (red on my socks, pink on my black sweater with pink polka dots) on Valentines Day. Seriously. It’s been a LONG time. I used to go all Anti-Valentine and wear black and I think I gave out Valentines cut out of black construction paper one year in high school. I don’t like the commercialism that surrounds the holiday, but as a hopeless romantic, I’m also somewhat doomed to love it and hope for my own special Valentines Day plans.
The boyfriend keeps making weird faces and saying he made no plans. I am skeptical and cautiously optimistic.
