I struggled over this strip for a number of reasons. First of all I wasn’t sure if I was going to do a Valentine’s Day comic because I had considered completely ignoring it as a form of silent protest showing my disdain for the holiday. But I’ve been known to skip over important events so I don’t think it would’ve been as effective. The one thing I did know was if I did a Valentine’s Day strip I wanted to have a list of items to epitomize the stereotypical recipe for being single person on Valentine’s Day.

I actually laugh at this one when I read it, but I’m not sure if it’s because it’s funny or just so sadistic that laughing is just a sort of nervous reaction to have. Or it could be funny in a tremendously sadistic sort of way. I’m curious what people will think of the character from this particular strip. I think in terms of the strip it’s staying consistent. Truth be told though, I did this one mostly to mess with my older sister who is into bad romantic comedies.

I plan on spending my Valentine’s Day eating whatever free candy will inevitably show up at work, but otherwise going about my business like it was any other Tuesday. Take THAT Hallmark!
