With Sue and I hacking, coughing, and being sick we are all wearing surgical masks. The sick (Sue and myself) and the well (Ryan and the nurse) are required! This way we have protection at both ends. As for me, I might be turning the corner on this but Sue is lagging behind by a day or two.
Anyhow, I thought we could have a little fun with this situation and decided to create a Valentine’s Day e-card that could be sent to our daughter, Kari. It had to include all of us and have a degree of wit. She would expect nothing else from me. Oh, the pressure.
Getting the picture was the easy part. Creating a catchy tagline was the challenge. Not just any old funny tagline would do either. I had to have the same amount of corniness that we all remember from our days of exchanging cards in elementary school. Who else saved that one special card that came in every box — and only one — for the person you had a crush on that year? Ah, puppy love.
Initially my train of thought was along the line of wearing protection. Funny? Yes. But not quite what I was shooting for to send to my daughter. Hey, I’d rather not seem creepy.
Then it hit me. The perfect tagline. I knew it was so the second it popped into my head. It had the right amount of silliness, while blending the reality of our situation with our true feelings for our daughter.
Hallmark and Shoebox Greetings, you have nothing on me!
Kari LOVED it! She wrote “LOL. Best Valentine ever!!!”
