Valentine’s Day

I took the girls to skating this evening, afternoon a day when they’d snacked constantly on candy, and so although they both excelled on the ice, Destroyer skating backwards and La Serpiente going round in circles on one foot, they were both sulky on the way home, Destroyer complaining that she had no fun at all on a holiday like this.

Well, child, Valentine’s Day is less a holiday than a chance to sell stuff to people, and you haven’t had to grind your teeth through people talking about "criterions" – I avoided this sort of retort but it was a struggle, I must admit.

(Wife and I exchanged chocolates last night, so I’m not totally devoid of feeling, right?)
