Happy hearts day! My Valentine and I celebrated our seventh one at Mohegan Sun, because what says "I love you" better than cash, lights and (not-so-) free drinks? I even won $50, because I'm such a high roller. After a few rounds of roulette, Mackenzie and I went into one of the casino's many bars for a margarita and some chips and salsa. We sat next to two ladies about my age, who I could hear loudly complaining about how much they hated Valentine's Day. As we clinked our drinks, cheers-ing to another successful V-Day, I heard the girl behind me mockingly cooing shrill I love youuuuuuuu's. I have to admit it kind of bothered me. Relationships take patience, compromise and work. What's so bad about one day of the year to celebrate that? Though I've been in a relationship for a long time, I'm glad I've never become that cynical. I mean, why go out to dump on other people's happiness? In the end, the two girls flirted their way to a reduced check from the manager, so maybe my whole view on life is warped.
