I’ve been going through what has turned out to be quite a substantial backlog of unpublished stories, and I thought I’d share this little bit of fluff with you today. I wrote it in response to the debate in our household surrounding the commercialisation of particular holidays, specifically Valentine’s Day. I hope you like it.
I’m not much good at this sort of thing, as you know. You’d probably have a poem on the tip of your tongue to say just the right thing. The best I can do is this:
You’ve made me happier than I ever dreamt it was possible to be again.
So this year, will you make a miserable old bugger happy and be my Valentine?”
