The next year he bought me a package containing six boxes of candy hearts, a sticky note bearing the words "Happy Valentine's Day! Love, Dad" lying on top, left unobtrusively next to my purse. I found it the morning after he'd come to visit, and when I called to thank him, he told me he'd forgotten all about the box from last year but had heard me talking about it, and thought if it made that much of an impression, he would do it again.
today i'm at hayley's talking about my aversion to valentine's but my love for cheap valentine's day candy.
not only because it's delectable, but because it helps me see.
although i wouldn't recommend relying on v-day candy over contacts or glasses for your eyesight. just sayin'.
