TODAY’S THE DAY. THIS RIGHT HERE IS THE TIME. CARPE-ING THAT DIEM. YES INDEED. NO LONGER WILL I LANGUISH IN THE ICY SHADOWS OF A LOVE UNSPOKEN, PINING FOR THE GENTLE TOUCH OF MY OBJET D’AMOUR. NO, THIS IS MY MOMENT. I AM GOING TO MARCH RIGHT UP TO MISS PATRICA WHISKERFRITZ, THE GIRL OF MY DREAMS AND ANNOUNCE IN A BOLD, FIRM VOICE, “PATRICIA! I HAVE LOVED YOU SINCE WE WERE CUBS! YOU ARE-“

… OH.

OH, OKAY.

THAT’S … UNFORTUNATE.

MIGHT HAVE TO UPDATE MY SPEECH.

“PATRICIA, I SEE YOU ARE ENGAGED IN SOME RATHER SERIOUS HEAVY PETTING WITH CHAD FURBISH, JOCK EXTRAORDINAIRE, UP AGAINST THE VERY SAME TREE I GNAWED OUR INITIALS INTO JUST LAST WEEK. AND DON’T YOU TWO LOOK TO BE HAVING A LOVELY TIME. SO SORRY TO BOTHER YOU. CARRY ON.”

MAYBE I CAN THROW IN A “HEY, CHAD. HOW’S IT HANGING? YOU ARE OBVIOUSLY MUCH BETTER AT DIEM CARPE-ING THAN ME. TRY NOT TO GET LITTLE BITS OF MUD AND BARK ALL OVER MY SHATTERED DREAMS.”

… PLEASE LET ME GO BLIND RIGHT NOW.

My Valentine’s Day

Husband’s (not that old) Prius broke down. Had to go rescue him and wait for the tow truck. Valentine’s Day. Woo hoo.
