Showing The Love To Aunt Virginia

I hate Valentine’s Day. It’s the most annoying holiday on the calendar — and relatively expensive for boyfriends and husbands who are crazy enough to pay double for flowers they could have romanced their siginificant others with for half the money a week earlier.

Oh, I play the Valentine’s game like every other man because Kimberly loves it and the kids do, too. But I don’t like it. Thankfully, Kimberly is content with the traditional box of Whitman’s mixed chocolates and I buy some candy and cheap stuffed animals for the kids.

The real winner is Aunt Virginia. She netted another $1.27 in sales taxes from my annual Valentine’s trip to CVS.
