Tuesday Tirade: Valentine’s Day

Did you think I was going to go on an Valentine’s rant?

Well …

Maybe, as a poet, I should pen an anti-Valentine’s poem.

Well …

Is there too much pressure on Valentine’s day? If you are in a relationship, do you stress coming up with the perfect gift, dinner, gesture to show your affection in a way you couldn’t (or didn’t) since the first time you met?

Are the businesses rubbing their hands together because this is the biggest spending day outside of … Christmas? Thanksgiving? Super Bowl parties?

Can a writer in a room come up with the best words to describe your feelings?

Maybe I should ask ChatGPT to write a poem about love?

I did. and this is what I got (for real):

C: ChatGPT is currently down
H: Huge demand has caused the site to crash
A: All users will have to wait
T: Time is needed for the servers to catch up
G: Go grab a coffee and check back soon
P: Patience is key in this situation
T: Trust that the team is working hard to fix it up

Apparently, I wasn’t the only one desperately trying to come up with a poem that I could pass off as my own.

So, who loves ya?

ChatBot, baby.
