Effing Valentine's Day.... $200 rose bouquets that wilt within 3 days. Heart-shaped chocolates that taste like desperation. Overheated restaurants crammed full of unhappy couples. Uncomfortable, itchy, expensive lingerie you'll never wear again. Stupid chalky-tasting conversation hearts that say crap like, "I LUV U" and "B MINE 4EVR". *grumble grumble*
Got a friend who hates, despises, and loathes Valentine's Day? Give her a box of BitterSweets ($10/box, $20/set of 3 boxes) from our favorite misanthropic Gloomy Guses over at Despair, Inc. Each lil' heart is printed with decidedly un-romantic sayings like, "SETTLE 4 LESS?", "NO FIX 4 DUMB", "CELIB8 THX2U", and "U TURN ME OFF". Ah, the
chalky sweet taste of sarcasm.
