Valentine Day Shots
How I knew today was Valentine’s Day:
Three times in five minutes the woman waiting on me at the license branch said to the co-worker friend next to her: “I guess he ain’t gonna send me those roses.”
As I walked up to an open window at the post office I noticed that each of the clerks had been given a little red foil bag with pink crinkly stuffing poking out of the top and filled with candy.
While at Goose Market buying stinky cheese for John and a cup of hazelnut fig gelato I asked Chris if he and his wife would get a chance to celebrate Valentine’s Day, to which he said, “Everyday with her is Valentine’s Day.”
John crunched his NECCO conversation hearts by the handful.
