Valentine's Day. My thoughts about this not really a holiday, day? Well, let's just say I have issues with the whole thing. Not trying to be a Grinch about it, but, well let's just leave it at that.

For a couple of years, my wife was on the same page as I was about Valentine's Day. Or so I thought. I learned the hard way to read between the lines.

Dentist And A Dinner

For Valentine's Day, we usually choose a nice place to have dinner after work, and that works for both of us. This year, my wife and I are spending part of our Valentine's Day in the dentist's chair for our semi-annual check-up. It just happened to work out that way. And our dentist is in Elmira, so a nice two-hour round trip is included. How romantic.

As I was telling a co-worker about my Valentine's Day plans to the dentist, we wondered about others who have interesting stories about odd Valentine's Day gifts or adventures. And the Twin Tiers of New York and Pennsylvania didn't disappoint.
