Valentine’s Day

When I was little, this was the best day! The preparations were so much fun. Smack dab in the middle of winter, the big jar of glue would be carried to a table at school during Art. The red and white paper and your imagination were the only things needed to make the perfect Valentine container. Then you got the class list, fresh copies..everyone buried their noses in the paper smelling those purple words. I took my list home and diligently picked out the best and biggest Valentine for what ever boy seemed to be the object of my friendship that week. Carefully I formed the letters of the names on the outside of the tiny envelopes, you did not want to miss anyone. Even though you would just as soon forget the little boy that always had a green runny nose which he wiped on his shirt sleeves, first the right ..then the left..until they were shiny and slick with snot. He wasn’t ever anyone’s boyfriend. The little boy that every little girl wanted to call her "beau" ended up being a priest. A nose filled with freckles instead of boogers..and he became a priest. I am not sure what happened to "booger boy"..he is probably a Politician or a Lawyer:)

    My secret crush lasted from Kindergarten to Senior year. Shortly after graduation I found out that he had liked me too. I guess we were just too chicken to find out. Oh well, he’s happily married to a real nice woman (a girl from a neighboring town) and that makes me happy too.
