Let's assume the worst: Your Valentine's Day won't quite pan out the way you'd hoped it would. Maybe you will be curtly informed that the "champagne" you had so thoughtfully put on ice was really "only sparkling wine," and that "any idiot knows real champagne can't be produced in the Yucatan!" Or perhaps that $400 dinner will only net you a peck on the cheek. Even worse: You will spend the evening alone, and watch the Grammy show you'd TiVo'd a few days earlier, and will sit through that sappy McCartney tune about his Valentine, in which case at least make sure there are no sharp objects within your reach.
