the BEST gift EVER

Here is the key for a single mom to forget how much she loathes Valentine's Day:

  • Be a 14 year old boy who seems absorbed in his own video game playing world
  • Take an ordinary piece of copy paper
  • Fold it in half length wise
  • Fold it again, downward
  • Write on the front "Dear Mom, I hope you like this gift, (open)"
  • Flip it open (length wise)
  • Write at the top of the page, "It's the best that I can give."
  • Write on the lower half of the folded sheet "I hope you like it because ..."
  • Unfold the page so it is flat
  • Write at the top "...because it's my heart ..."
  • Draw a big red heart in the center of the page
  • Write at the bottom "... Happy Valentine's Day!"
  • Refold it so it appears to be a card
  • Give it to your mother and watch her cry

  4. And you don't like Valentine's Day.

    Right.

    Sometimes, Riss, it comes from a love ever common and continuously there.

    Happy Valentine's Day.

  5. Rupe, you're right. I, like so many I criticize, get caught up in the commercialized version of the day and forget. Sure, being shot in the ass by Cupid's arrow would be cool, but having such a sweet feller in my life every single day is reason for celebration.

    Mancub is awesome! He gives me hope for the present and future.
