I knew a girl once who, only semi-bitterly, referred to Valentine's Day as "Singles' Awareness Day."
Newly engaged, I merely laughed at the notion -- the most fun I'd had on Valentine's Day was during my seahorse period. My girlfriends and I, who all happened to be single at the time, by some miracle of luck, went out and celebrated together.
It was the best Valentine's Day ever.
This one, though, which is looming over me like a particularly cheerful cloud, is going to be a bit ... different.
