I went to the grocery store last night for my mom. Anyone that knows me well knows that I really dislike going to the grocery store. Add to this fact that it was five-ish and everyone was getting off of work and FRANTICALLY diving through the Valentine's Day aisles to find that perfect love-trinket.
Really. Nothing says "I want to spend the rest of my life with you" more than the tiny gorilla that lip synchs to "Achy Breaky Heart"...(Isn't that a break up song? YES). But if you really, REALLY love someone, say it with the freakishly large white teddy bear with the big red heart sewn between his jumbo paws.
When words and spontaneous, non-holiday generated thought just aren't enough.
