Don’t buy flowers, candy, champagne or anything like that. It’s a waste of money anyway.
Do something cheap like seeing a movie. If you want to let your true chauvinism shine, back out of the movie and opt for HBO.
If you correctly followed steps 1 and 2, step three is waking up to a breakfast of pancakes and bacon rollie things with cheese, while your wife cleans. YMMV (Your Mileage May Vary)
I’ve only recently started warming up to the idea of celebrating my birthday. The thought of celebrating Valentine’s Day (or any day that… ends with day, or something) has always made me think “bah humbug!” I actually had no idea Valentine’s Day was so close until I got a Skype call from Grandma telling me “Did you send your mother a card yet?” (Note: Grandma’s can use Skype. Crazy huh?)
I will try to be better prepared for up-and-coming holidays. Instead of Bah Humbuging them away, I can use them as an excuse to have good times (which is what I suppose they were designed for.)

For balance, I’ll post my darkend eye after wife reads this post. 😀
