Happy VD!


HAppy VD, everyone. Hope you had a good one. Sienna did. She came home from school all floaty and I asked her why. She said that the boy she calls "Comfy Desk" (Austin) came up to her with a gift bag and asked her,"Sienna, will you be my valentine?". No wonder she was floaty. She told him she would. In the bag was a bear and a mug that said LOVE LOVE LOVE. I might die of the cuteness. The next day she wandered around the house singing,"So this is love, mmmm mmmm mmm mmmmmm". (Please don't mock her for it. I'll get in big trouble.)

I remember those feelings. How fun. I remember seeing that happen to girls and being so jealous. Was it in fourth grade? Maybe. I wished on the wishing star that year that Mike Garner would want to be my valentine. I read every card with a very discerning eye... did the Hot Wheels valentine that said,"You drive me wild" from Joey Munoz really mean something more? After all, I had stayed up late choosing exactly which valentine would go to whom and which conversation hearts would be stuffed in the envelope. It was never chance.

Nowadays, there aren't even envelopes. Kids don't write names on them and they're expected to bring a whole box of conversation hearts (which by the way say "text me!" and LOL) for EACH kid. Stupid. I'm glad Comfy Desk still knows the real meaning of that day.

Sam had a girl ask him to be his Valentine... well sort of. Her friend asked. He said "I guess" so that meant $10 bucks at the drug store buying a butterfinger and a stuffed animal. He gave it to her, will kind of. She was at recess but told him to put it on the couch in her classroom. Girls are so smart. They already have men figured out in the 4th grade.

She is pretty. Very pretty. I'm glad that she got a valentine from the boy that 'gets it'.

p.s. back in my day, VD stood for something very different.

This was so fun to read. I remember those people! In fifth grade my mom helped me bake a heart-shaped cake for Scott Tenney on Valentine's day then drove me to his house so I could deliver it. When I got out of the car I dropped it in the gutter and then, for lack of options, went home.

Mike was on my list of wannabe valentines, too! He was always at my slumber parties, though! Wonder what happened to him...

don't remember mike, but Joey made me laugh. I remember feeling the same way about valentines day. I would love to laugh about some other past crushes with you!
