It has been a while since I posted here...is it because I haven't had anything to celebrate? Maybe. I am going to try...
Tomorrow is Valentines Day. Another year not celebrating with a special someone. (Well, this celebration blog is going well isn't it?) Watching others cuddle and coo over jewelry, chocolates and flowers. Yippie. Watching sappy movies, ostracizing myself for sobbing and being happy that the couple on screen have finally found each other. BAH!
Let's celebrate the other Valentine's Day. The St. Valentine's Day Massacre. We can thank gangsters for this lovely distraction from the sappy day of love. Although it is not known exactly who pulled off the murder of 5 members of Bugs Moran's North Side Irish gang, it is believed that the South Side Italian gang lead by Al Capone was responsible. Why do you ask did four mobster dressed as cops slaughter 6 guys from a rival gang?...No one knows for sure...Hijacked liquor shipments, that guy looked at that guy's girl; that guy walked into the wrong restaurant, on the wrong side of the street. Mostly, it seems to me, just because. Just because some people think they are better than other people...isn't that the reason most wars are fought?
Let's celebrate something this week that doesn't happen very often...Peace. The best way to celebrate. Don't fight.
