Valentine’s Day calls up gooey images of love & affection. Pretty hearts in delicate colors. Confections of chocolate & assortments of sugar-coated cuteness. We think about being head-over-heels--romance, adoration being with a special someone.

Valentine’s Day's a created “holiday.” If it were about love, we’d buy a gift on any day, wanting nothing in return. What of those with no special someone? Isn’t a pain in the arse to hear about such lovey-dovey stuff? Wouldn’t you like to toss that garbage at those who walk around in a V-Day fog of saccharine smiles?

What about the Valentine’s Day Massacre? Did Al Capone feel warm-&-fuzzy when he murdered a bunch of folks that day? Did he plug ‘em. then go home to his wife with a box of chocolates & a dozen blood red roses?

Think how stressful it is for guys. Jay Leno says, "Today is Valentine's Day. Or as men like to call it, Extortion Day." All that pressure to buy the perfect token, spend the right amount of money--if there isn’t a price tag involved, some girls will have nothing of it.

What was the WORST gift you received? What’s been expected of you in return? If you’ve had a less-than-chipper Valentine’s Day, let us know. Linda & Debbie have stories. Share yours Thurs, 2/9/2012, 2:30 PM EST. We’re waiting with hearts & flowers!
