While preparing for our show yesterday I happened to mention to Paul that since Valentines Day was Monday this should be our Valentines show. This led to a discussion of how this holiday is celebrated in the Skalny household.
“Cindy and I pretty much consider it to be a Hallmark holiday and consequently we really don’t do anything special.”
Our producer, Dave Bittner pretty much agreed. He said that he and Ilana think of it the same way and they don’t plan on doing anything special on Monday either.
Of course this conversation was between three guys, the female perspective was notably absent. When our guest, former State Senator Sandy Schrader, joined us that was somewhat rectified. Though she doesn’t expect her husband Dennis to go overboard she does think that a handwritten card and a simple gesture are appropriate. She see’s the holiday as a celebration of the “us.”
