V-day sucks. So far my plans involve yoga after work, immediately followed by bosu ball and then the rest of my evening is undecided. Shoshana asked me to meet up later but when I realized what day it was I assumed she made a mistake. I called her to remind her.
"Hey Shosh, you can't meet up with me later, it's Valentine's Day. Don't you and Josh have plans?"
"I know what day it is, but we have no plans. If Josh remembers what day it is, maybe I'll make plans with him, but until then..."
Until then what? Your idiot single friend will do? When he remembers (and he will be forced to remember), I'll be dropped. Not cool, but the problem is, every other person I know has their own V-day activity or they're away. I am trying so hard to come up with a reason to cancel Shoshana before she cancels me. So far I can only come up with one idea:
Go see the new movie "Neil Young: Heart of Gold", wearing a balaclava to avoid the embarrassment of a solo movie on February 14th.
