Happy Valentine’s Day!

by Sylvia A. Winters

Oh look, it’s Valentine’s Day, otherwise known as Why Am I Still Single? Day!

My Valentine’s has consisted of waiting in the queue at the civic centre, trying to sort out housing benefit.

The rest I’m spending in my room, watching ‘My Bloody Valentine’ while scribbling romantic story ideas down in my notebook. Because there’s nothing like seeing skulls smashed in with pickaxes for inspiration =D

To those of you in a couple or variation thereof, Happy Valentine’s Day!

To those who aren’t in a couple, you have my condolences and I’ll see you at the rubbish dump. I’ll bring chocolate and we can hold each other’s hands and cry into our cardboard boxes.
