Now, I will admit that sometimes this thing we call romantic love can get downright sloppy — right? (Refer to picture above). But let’s face it: This old world would be a sad, empty, dark place without it. So here’s to celebrating the “Love Holiday” once more. And in honor of that celebration, I got to thinking about the “Irreverent Valentine Sentinment” posts that I did last year. I couldn’t resist hopping back in time and visiting those sentiments, and after I did, I decided to share the links. Many of you read them last year, but I have quite a few new followers this year, and far be it from me to deny them the opportunity to consider the “other side” of Valentine’s Day sentiments. So here are all 7 of them in order of their original posting. Let me know if any of them sound familiar to some sentiments you’ve had from time to time.

Please Be My Valentine:
I want to be loved by you,
Just you, and nobody else but you.
However, if you’re busy this week,
I’ll call the next guy on my list.
If it’s true that love makes the world go round (round … round … round …) then I think the best gift I can give my valentine is shares of stock in a company that manufactures motion sickness medicine.
“Baby, I ain’t askin’ much of you. Just a big-a, big-a hunk of love will do.” Never sing these words aloud when standing out in the open.

The month of love is almost upon us, and Valentine’s Day is rushing toward us at full speed. The store shelves are heavily laden with enormous boxes of fine chocolates and all manner of stuffed animals holding out decorated hearts. Florists are gearing up for orders of more roses than they get the whole rest of the year. Jewelers’ cases display sparkling hearts in all shapes and sizes, and as for the greeting card business – yep, it’s booming. I enjoy Valentine’s Day well enough, but I’m just not in the mood for all the ooooey-goooey cards and messages yet. So I decided that I’m going to do a series of ‘Irreverent Valentine Sentiments’ this week. It’s my attempt to lead into the holiday with a lighter touch. Here’s # 1.
