There are two types of people in this world: People who opt out of Valentine's Day by saying it's a naked conspiracy to get people to buy crap they don't need, and people permitted to roam freely in polite society. Look, everyone knows Valentine's Day is a little hokey, but it's also one of those things adults just have to suck up and do for the people they care about, like asking "How was your day?" or pretending a preschooler's construction paper scribbling is the finest art they've ever seen. The conundrum, though, can be figuring out what to do for such a holiday, especially since it's very hard to make someone fall for that "Free foot rub!" coupon trick twice. Nobody ever follows through on the foot rub!
