#1: I grinned at Mrs Merkel's movements at the Germany-Argentina game. She looked as if she wanted to find someone to hug, or to dance with.

#6 is a tragedy of non-status-quo reference points (Kosegi-Rabin?). Those holidays are meant to shower attention on people who have been neglected the rest of the year. Instead, formal holidays create astronomically high expectations, so that a Valentine's Day that is better than all other days, but worse than what a wife expects, is actually coded as a loss. The pain of a mediocre valentine's day is similar to a truly bad act (DUI, extra-marital flirting, etc) on another day.

The answer, of course, is to lower expectations. Dole out one Valentine's day worth of gifts and attention across 3 randomly chosen days from the whole calendar. Note: she must know the plan, because it's her expectations, not yours, that must be lowered.

Would you mind reminding me about #6 a bit before the day's observance next year?
