I'm Not Alone - I Have Salad!

Now, I don't claim to be a historian, but, as we all know, Valentine's Day is the very special day where we celebrate the birth of Saint Valentine, who shot arrows at people until they married each other. He also gave out candy.

And since that day Valentine's Day has become a day for couples. Women get showered with flowers, chocolates, jewelry, stuffed animals and other gifts, while men get to buy these things for the women. It's a wonderful holiday.

But what about those that don't have someone on Valentine's Day? Women, in particular, seem to get very down on V-Day if they don't have someone to share it with. Not to worry, ladies! You don't need another person to enjoy Valentine's Day. You just need salad. That's right, salad!

Don't believe me? Take a look at this small sampling of pictures from a post on The Hairpin, a website created by Edith Zimmerman and Liz Colville. Edith happened to notice that, for some reason, there seems to be an abundance of pictures of women laughing while they hold bowls of salad. Apparently it's a marketing trick to get you to eat healthier. See if it works for you.

That's right. Stare off into the distance and laugh at your salad.

"Ha! Salad is C-R-A-Z-Y!"

That's right, ladies, fruit salad is just as funny as regular salad.

If you're still feeling lonely, even with your salad, add a glass of water. The combination is hilarious!

Indoors or outdoors, salad is endlessly entertaining!

You don't even need to be eating salad to enjoy your loneliness! Making salad is just as fun!

In fact, don't actually eat the salad - just laugh with your salad. After all, once you eat it, you'll be lonely again.

And believe it or not, this is only the beginning of "Women Laughing Alone with Salad." You can see the rest of the pictures from the article here.

I'd like to thank, alert reader, Ted for showing me how fun and funny salad can really be!

Happy Valentine's Day!

There are so many things that are awesome about this post:
1. All the photos and the content, obviously, but the "This salad is CRAZY" one made me laugh audibly.
2. The link to Ted's photo. That's a great pic!
3. The way you linked women laughing alone with salad to a V-day theme. Clever!
4. The label "Women laughing alone with salad" that you created.

Seriously so funny! I never would have made the connection, but it all makes sense now.
