Second, VD is as unwanted as a VD. Never mind the commercial products being sold, I hate the implication that you’re a “failure” if you don’t have a relationship on February 14th. Socially pressures and demanded participation in certain “holidays” are mentally damaging, regardless of whether it’s December, February, May or June. (Hallowe’en fans don’t go around demanding others’ participation, and besides it’s fun.)
Singer, songwriter and guitarist Joan Armatrading turned 70 recently, born December 9, 1950. (Dang! Another birthday I missed!) One of her best known songs is “Me, Myself, I”, about the joys of being single. May this be your anthem for Sunday.
“Me, Myself, I”, written and performed by Joan Armatrading:
I sit here by myself And you know I love it You know I don't want someone To come pay a visit I wanna be by myself I came in this world alone Me myself I I wanna go to China And to see Japan I'd like to sail the oceans Before the seas run dry I wanna go by myself I've just room enough for one Me myself I I wanna be a big shot And have ninety cars I wanna have a boyfriend And a girl for laughs But only on Saturdays Six days to be alone With just me myself I Me myself and I Just me myself I Don't wanna be the bad guy Don't wanna make a soul cry It's not that I love myself I just don't want company Except me myself I Me myself and I Just me myself I I sit here by myself And you know I love it You know I don't want someone To come pay a visit I wanna be by myself I came in this world alone Me myself I Me myself I Me myself and I Just me myself I
