Every year without fail we run into each other when the rest of the year we are strangers. I know who you are but I’m not sure you know I exist.

To be honest I don’t think I like you but in one of those quirks of human nature, I want you to like me. There has only been one of our annual catch-ups that I’ve actually enjoyed but that was about five years ago now. Every other year you just annoy me and push my buttons. You’d think by now we’d have reached some kind of truce but apparently not. Every year you drop by and even though lots of my friends seem to enjoy your company, I don’t.

I propose that next year when you come by to visit, you are nicer to me. Thanks. Until then Valentine’s…

Happy Valentine’s gang.
