See this card?
It's two bears sleeping in bed. He's hot, she's cold--Jared and I could be those bears.
But that's not the interesting part. This is the interesting part...
I sh!t you not, I've been giving Jared this same, unsigned card every year for Valentine's Day since 2007. He's gotten this card in a crappy apartment in Texas, my parents' house in Massachusetts, and our house up here in Maine. Every year I hand it to him in the unsealed envelope and say, "Oh my word, isn't it perfect? Those bears might as well be us!"
He snickers, gives a little bouncy nod and goes, "Pfft! You're totally right."
Then he puts the card on the table, walks away to investigate something shiny/stinky/loud, and I slip the card back into the drawer of my sewing table....until next year.
You know, just my little contribution to saving the planet.
