Friday, February 12, 2016 – Hearts, Flowers, Chocolates and I Love You Too!
Sunday is Valentine’s Day. Remember when we put little shoe boxes on our desks in elementary school? Classmates would come around and drop little cards with hearts and sayings like “Be Sweet” or “Be My Valentine.”
Now it is just “Gimme those chocolate covered strawberries and get out of my way!”
Here’s what I’m thinking – I thought it would really set my neighborhood on its ear if I set up a kissing booth in my front yard on Sunday morning. I could sell kisses and donate to the funds charity. Then again, I realized who lives in my neighborhood and I can’t offer handicap parking or access for my kissing booth. There is no room for scooters, walkers, wheel chairs and those who just take tiny steps.
The neighborhood association is already bent out of shape because the new neighbor at the end of the cul-de-sac painted her fence red. Perhaps I will stroll down late Saturday night and graffiti some hearts, flowers, chocolates and I Love You Too on her fence.
Happy Valentine’s Day! Now where are those chocolate covered strawberries?
