Hey, you. Yeah, you. You with the nice house, and the wife you take for granted, and the girlfriend on the side. You're not getting away with it. A private investigator, hired by your wife, followed you all Valentine's Day. And it wasn't the first time. He's been on your case a good month now. He knows where you live. He knows where she lives. He knows where you work. He knows where she works. He has even got videotape of the two of you kissing. On Valentine's Day, very early, while you were still asleep, he sneaked up your driveway, slid under your car and installed a tracking device, so he could follow you, but not so closely that you might notice.

Wearing pigtails and a pink sweat shirt, Jennifer Gilbert-Duran skipped up the steps of a Pasadena home to deliver a Valentine's Day gift basket. But as 21-year-old Richard McLeod signed for the package, he got a less romantic surprise. A sheriff's deputy placed him under arrest on a charge of failing to appear in court on an open-container violation. "So that isn't mine?" McLeod asked as he was handcuffed. Anne Arundel County Sheriff Ron Bateman is no Cupid, but he did spend yesterday playing matchmaker: pairing a dozen crime suspects with their outstanding warrants.

Younger men cower in the doorway of the lingerie store, but 74-year-old Chester Taplette practically gallops across the leopard-print carpet. He's been staking out this Frederick's of Hollywood in Glen Burnie's Marley Station Mall for weeks now, "scheming," he says, about which lacy item to buy for his Annie on their 48th Valentine's Day as husband and wife. And because Annie has been his partner in every decision for nearly half a century now, why would he exclude her from this one? The 67-year-old follows a few steps behind her husband, her head swaddled in a scarf to conceal the curlers in her hair.

St. Valentine wrote a letter to his jailer's daughter on the eve of his execution in Rome in the third century A.D. and signed it "from your Valentine."Ever since we have sent loved ones affectionate messages on Feb. 14 "from your valentine."By the fifth century, the mid-February Roman fertility festival Lupercalia was called St. Valentine's Day, said to be the day that birds chose their mates. Love birds remain faithful to that ancient ritual. "It is still traditional for a proposal to be made on St. (P Valentine's Day and for the couple to marry in June," said Evaline Pulati of Santa Ana, Calif.

Sure, not everyone wants to celebrate Valentine's Day. It's not so hard to sit it out. But imagine if you and your sweetheart worked together in the Valentine's Day industry, catering to romance but, come dinnertime on Feb. 14, never able to experience it yourselves. That's the situation facing couples who work together in restaurants. Picture them: One is firing up a filet mignons, the other is clambering over boxes of sparkling wine in the walk-in. All the while, customers are glowing dreamily in the candlelight, clasping hands under the table and feeding each other succulent bites of lobster Thermidor.

Valentine's Day used to be a wonderful time in the heady days before romance entered into its sordid relationship with Big Business.Back then a man could dash into a drug store after work and pick up a sappy Hallmark card and cheap box of candy, and be relatively certain that the woman in his life would just about turn cartwheels at this incredible thoughtfulness.Then, I don't know . . . something happened.Suddenly, it wasn't enough to burst into a Rite-Aid 10 minutes before closing time and bark at the startled Whitesnake freak with the nose ring behind the register: "The little, y'know, chocolates in the, uh, sampler thing . . . YOU GOT ANYMORE OF THEM?

C On the day after Valentine's Day, it's the thought that doesn't count.No matter what you buy, the fact is, the gift is a day late. And if you give the wrong gift even if it's on the right day, you're still in trouble.Greg Rogers, a 42-year-old sales manager from Kent Island, had this idea. Call it impulsive, romantic -- and ultimately useless. On Valentine's Day night, he suggested to his wife that they fly to Florida for a long weekend. Forget the flowers and candy. Think sunshine, honey.
