You may be seeing red today. No, I don’t mean that you’ll be mad, I’m talking about it being Valentine’s Day! But then again, if your sweetie doesn’t lavish you with flowers, candy and a card, you might actually get perturbed anyway. So it could go either way.

Valentine’s Day was a major event back when I was in grade school. Remember making those pouch thingies out of construction paper and remember that nasty paste that came in the little jar that you smeared around with the stick that was attached to the inside of the lid? That paste missed its calling. It was much more fun to cover your hands with it, let it dry, and then slowly peel it off. I wonder if it tickles a snake to shed its skin the way it did peeling that dried glue off? I’ve never heard a snake giggling, so probably not.
