If you’re totally sick of talking about Valentine’s Day, I totally get it. The only holiday I loathe more is New Year’s Eve. And St. Patrick’s Day is pretty high on my sh!t list too. Oh, and the Fourth of July. Okay, so maybe I don’t really hate Valentine’s Day—I just don’t like the exclusionary vibe a lot of single folks have to navigate through.
At least it’s a good excuse to write and talk about chocolate…
