When Pink Attacks

I'm experiencing sensory overload. Valentine's Day is quickly approaching, which means our office gift shop is awash in little pink stuffed bears, big puffy heart-shaped balloons, lip-shaped cookies and bouquets of roses.

In fact, I can't even get a cup of coffee from the cafeteria without being accosted by hand-decorated Valentine's Day cookies and vases full of flowers. This is a place of business, people!

Does anyone actually enjoy this holiday? For single people, it rounds out the Terrible Trifecta: Christmas, New Year's Eve and Valentine's Day. For people in relationships, it's a pressure-filled day when you're 100% guaranteed to do the wrong thing.
