'nother little piece of my heart
For the past couple of days, I’ve been getting an uptick of hits on last year’s Anti-Valentine’s ecards post. I figured it was nothing unusual, given the season.

Turns out there’s a more general Valentine’s-hatin’ sentiment out there, validated by commerce participation. None too serious, as there’s a distinctly cute streak to even this cantankerousness.

It’s a natural reaction to all the hearts and flowers imagery. If you’re flying solo, it’s magnified, and sure to bring forth the sourness.

Myself, I’ve put aside the negativity for this go-round (well, mostly); I can indulge next time. In the absence of a girlfriend, I bought a box of chocolate truffles for my mom. Figure she could use it this year. Besides, she let me have a couple of pieces — instant karma!
