The day before Valentine’s was Ash Wednesday, so most everyone in this Roman Catholic country had ashen crosses drawn on their foreheads at morning Mass. I, however, the freakish Protestant nonconformist, walked with my clean forehead bared to the world!!! BWAHAHA!!!
Anyway, I went to Holland Tulips on Monday to order a bouquet of roses and daisies, to be delivered to *******’s office on the 13th (since the 14th was full already), but we otherwise forgot that it was Valentine’s. No problem, since we don’t put too much stock in Hallmark holidays. Besides, with Pau and Tiff, everyday is Valentine’s Day. (She liked the flowers!)
