This audio from Mr. T is my favorite thing about Valentine's Day; basically, it's the only thing I like about Valentine's Day. That doesn't mean you can't like it. Go nuts. Buy flowers, go out to dinner, pretend this day means something... and if you're feeling bad about yourself for not having a "Valentine" and are planning on going out to meet other people who are feeling bad about themselves, go for it... just try not to get an STD:
"the U.S. Centers for Disease Control released data Wednesday revealing that 20 million new sexually transmitted infections (STIs) are diagnosed each year nationwide, costing some $16 billion in taxpayer funds.
Half of the 20 million new infections affect people ages 15 to 24 - who only make up a quarter of the population, according to the statistics.
Human papillomavirus (HPV) tops the list as the most common infection followed by chlamydia, gonorrhea, syphilis, herpes, hepatitis B, HIV and trichomoniasis." (dailymail)
I've always thought, if it wasn't an STD, that "Chlamydia" would make a pretty name for a girl.
