The best thing I ever heard about Valentine's Day was in an old episode of Will and Grace where Grace was ranting about the holiday created by evil greeting card publishers, florists, and candy makers. Then she stopped in full rant and said: "Well, not candy makers. They do the work of God."
Diets die on this day. No matter how much I want to lose a few pounds, I celebrate today with dark chocolate confections with gooey, melt-in-your-mouth centers. God's work indeed.
Happy Valentine's Day.
