Everybody claims I have ulterior motives when I call bullshit on Valentine’s Day. Well I guess today’s the day I can bitch without being called cheap. I don’t need a card or another T shirt Or a mug to know I’m a dad. I know. My checking account balance screams “multiple dependents” at me every day. Hallmark Hollidays make me angry for some reason. I I feel manipulated. It’s all made up. It’s stupid. Let’s abolish all the made up, bullshit holidays, including Father’s Day. It is time to shed this phony, emotionally needy tradition.
Family almost totally forgot it today, they are off to the shore for a week. Mentioned it on the way out the door. That's a huge bonus, because let's face it VALENTINES is the worst of all, and anything I can do to take the pressure off that....

Here's another yeah for axing these holidays. The worst one is grandparents day. Aren't they already covered under Mother & Fathers Days? And I'm going to be a grandparent soon. I don't need a day for that. I might change my mind if they made those days weekdays and I got those days off. What's next, Dogs Day?
