V.D. Day?

I went to a stand up comedy show last night.

I mean, I guess I could have gone out of a date on Valentines Day, but I didn’t feel like lowering my standards.

So the format for this show was, small venue, lots of comics each getting like 7 minutes, and as the 3 and a half hour show went on, more and more people took off. I was a little surprised to see the comics not supporting each other, but when I got home and thought about it, I realized it shouldn’t have surprised me at all.

One common theme of course for all these comics to discuss was Valentines Day. I thought it was really weird though that a bunch of them kept referring to it as V.D. Day.

V.D. Day? Did I miss something here. Nobody bothered to explain the joke, but like half of the comics made reference to it.

what is that even supposed to mean? V.D. Day? Valentines Day Day? I imagine it’s some joke involving venereal disease, and how plenty of ugly people give V.D to each other on that day. I don’t know, I guess it would have been nice if the 8th person who said it gave some form of explanation, instead of assuming that everyone was on board. So each time some new comic came up and said; ‘Happy V.D. Day’, I kept thinking to myself, Valentines Day Day, that doesn’t make sense!

Also I realized that given what I saw last night from a smattering of comics, there is no reason why I should not be doing it. My goal is to start trying to get on some shows by this summer. We shall see how it works out.
