My Funny Valentine

Happy Valentine Day -- Or Else

          I’m going to tell you a secret: A secret that will seem stunning, coming from a man who writes romance novels:

          I’m not romantic. At all.

          This comes as no surprise to my wife, I’m sad to say. I do the dishes, don’t mind going shopping, listen when she talks, and don’t watch sports, but in this one area I’m sadly far too much like the typical male.

          It’s worse during winter, a time during which I’m not very good at anything, and tend to get sick and tired all the time. Unfortunately for me, some moron chose to place Valentine’s Day in February, right in the middle of a time when my idea of romance is cuddling on my side instead of my back, so I’m less likely to bother her by snoring.
