OK, back to our originally scheduled blog. I started the Insanity workout today because my internal fitness level did not match my external appearance. I have a supercharged engine in a jalopy frame and it was time to get to the body shop. When I finished the workout this morning, I thought about some things that I had been talking about with women that I know. They all have various reasons for justifying why they don’t think a guy will work out. Some of them claim intuition, some resort to blaming it on “timing” and some just say that they aren’t willing to “settle”, but are uncomfortable discussing what is an unsettling…uh…settling situation.
Valentine’s Day gets a bad rap as a corporate holiday, but in reality it is…well, it’s so much worse. It’s so bad that it doesn’t even warrant a day off for our valiant postal workers. In fact, it would seem to me that they have to work extra hard on this day. You can take that to bank. I mean, literally, you can take it to the bank because the banks are open on this “holiday”.
To make matters worse, this is the most exclusionary holiday on the calendar. Another saint’s day, Patrick to be exact doesn’t require one to be Irish; anyone can get filthy drunk on this holiday. That’s inclusion. President’s Day is coming up next and we’ve all voted for somebody that won. If you didn’t vote, then you have probably at least been screwed by presidential policies at some point. We all get to enjoy the holiday. As I rack my brain, every single holiday other than Valentine’s Day is for us all.
What about this day devoted to St. Valentines? Read the rest of this entry
