Happy heart day all!!
I think I am just now finally escaping a karmic curse I accrued in the eighth grade. I had a boyfriend during that auspicious portion of Jr. High for, oh, maybe 8 weeks. (That's like 2 years in grown up time) Unfortunately I was too shy to actually talk to him. And way too scared to kiss him or anything, so I believe our relationship was made up of sometimes sitting at the same lunch table and the occasional gift that was left at my desk. I somehow got it in my mind that this wasn't working for me any longer, and proceeded to break up with him. In a letter. On Valentine's Day.
That would be enough bad karma to affect the teenage years as it related to the hearts and roses holiday, but even worse, It was a full three years later when I realized, Hey, wait. Wasn't his name Valentin? And wasn't his name Valentin because he was actually born on Valentine's Day? And then it finally dawned on me that I had not only dumped him on Valentine's day, but on his birthday as well. And then I knew I was doomed.
But even curses have to lift sometime. Which is why tonight is being celebrated with bubbly, co-created homeade pizza and a showing of the movie Edward Scissorhands. I only hope Valentin is doing something similarly satisfying.
What are your valentine's day plans?
