The Hallmark Holiday

I drove by Fry's on Friday & laughed at the "Valentine Express" they were setting up their parking lot. It was a refrigerated semi decorated with red balloons & a big tent. They were hawking flowers, chocolate, cookies, cards, and anything else they could paint red & decorate with a heart. Nothing says romance more than 1 dozen roses fresh out of the back of a semi.
It became less funny when I trudged into Fry's this evening to purchase my own flowers. At least I had the dignity to enter the store to make my selection.
That folks, is irony.
