I've done my best not to think about Valentine's Day, but thanks to the riptide of e-mails I've gotten from assorted retail chains promoting their Valentine's Day specials for, oh, I don't know, the PAST MONTH, it's been kind of hard not to.
I would have had little problem staying in on V-Day night had it fallen any other night of the week but Saturday, but because the Universe has a ridiculous sense of humor (although I don't always seem to find the same things funny as it does), my first V-Day in several years as a freshly minted single gal falls on a Saturday. And the combined effect of staying in on a Saturday that also happens to be Valentine's Day is just a whole lotta lame.
More on my V-Day thoughts in a future post, but let's just ask -- hypothetically, of course -- were a modern gal to ask out a modern guy whose company she enjoys for a night of G-rated fun, what kind of activities would she engage in?
I know you're all going to want to ask follow-up questions. Let me just say I don't have the answers. Discuss anyway.
From Modern Angie, who will always be my No. 1 Valentine
