Yeah, yeah...we know February 14th is Valentine's day. The card aisle at CVS reminded us of this fact as we were on our way to buy some cold medication.
But did you know that in a fit of irony, it's also Singles Awareness Day? If Wikipedia says it, we know it's the gospel truth.
That's great because we've now gotten permission to fly our single flag and celebrate the fact that we're not straddled down by a relationship and all the things that come with it - mortgage, mini-van, and a Labrador Retriever....
There's nothing that says I'm single on Valentine's Day than a strip club. In an open and utopian society, you might be dating someone who enjoys strip clubs or says "go! enjoy a night out with the guys (or girls)". But there are two times when it is absolutely not OK to go to a strip club - Valentines Day and your wedding night (unless you actually married a stripper). Solid Gold come complete with a steak house, The Palms Grill, so you can technically say you just went out to dinner....

Celebrate Singles Awareness Day the way we're going to. We're getting into our jammies, putting on a DVD (We're thinking zombie attacks over The Notebook) and heating up some Soup for One (we do not share our food with the cat). When we wake up tomorrow, we'll have 364 days to find a date for next year.
