After devoting a rather long entry to Valentine’s Day and love, I felt compelled to offer the counter-argument, to balance things out. Hate, the passionate fiery emotion that can eat us up from the inside, is not exactly the opposite of love, but compelling all the same.
If you feel like you’ve been neglecting that special someone who you just hate, not giving them their due attention, hand them one of these cards. And they’ll know you’ve been thinking of them…choking on their morning coffee or finding a severed rat’s head in their cereal.
Honestly, I can’t think of any good that could come from giving these to someone, but what do I know?

BONUS: Three heartbreaking songs that I particularly like.
Someone Like You by Adele. Beyoncé talks about replacing an ex, as well, but Adele’s take is heart wrenching and raw.
I heard that you settled down
That you found a girl and you’re married now
I heard that your dreams came true
Guess she gave you things I couldn’t give to you
I Know It’s Over by The Smiths. The Jeff Buckley version is also very good. There are a lot of Smith songs that make me sigh and say, “Oh Morrissey, you poor thing.” This is one of them.
I can feel the soil falling over my head
As I climb into an empty bed
Oh well, enough said
Cover My Eyes by La Roux. Jump, Little Children have a song called Mexico, about when you break up the other person should go far, far away, all the way to Mexico. That rarely happens. Instead you often have to come face to face with that person.
When I see you walk in with her
I have to cover my eyes
Every time you leave with her
Something inside of me dies
