Why is it I
love you any more in the middle of
February than I would on, say, August
21st? You know, to me, every day with you
is Valentine's Day.
So, in other
words, you forgot to buy me a card.
I'm saying...What is the big deal with
Valentine's Day? It's a made-up holiday.
Nobody even knows who this St. Valentine
He was a Roman
priest who defended the Christians and was
beheaded by Claudius II on February 14,
can't bamboozle your wife. She's always on
top of her game and you should know by now
that it's futile to try.
" Why do we
feel the need to own what we love, and
why do we become such jerks when we do?
We've all been there, you know: we want
something; we own it; and by owning it
we change it. When you finally win that
girl of your dreams, the first thing you
do is try to change her. That little
thing she does with her hair, the way
she wears her clothes, the way she chews
her gum. Until eventually, what you
like, what you don't like and what you
change all merges into one. Like a
watercolor in the rain."
-- Christopher 'Chris' Stevens,
blip on the monitor of involuntary human
response. A hiccup of an emotion when
compared with envy, hatred, lust. And
just who was this St. Valentine? A
bishop, Roman, third century, got his
head sliced off-- ouch-- for marrying
lovers against his emperor's decree. You
see Claudius II believed men made better
warriors unmarried. Power comes with the
absence of love. Love drains us of our
strength. We never learn, do we? And you
say that love conquers all? Well not for
you, St. Valentine, not for me. Not for
any of the heartbroken."

Day radio show, Be My Valentine), Forever
