Actually she comes to mind every single Valentines Day, but this year she totally messed me up.
When she was a little girl she used to run around telling everyone, "Happy VD!" on Valentines Day.
I was mortified.
That was back in the day when ummm.... bad diseases from ... ummm... doing bad things with ... ummm.... other people caused horrible sicknesses called ... ummm... venereal disease.
You might remember this if you're as old as me.
Now, of course, they call these ... ummm... bad diseases from ... ummm... doing bad things .... ummm.... STD's for ... ummm.... well ... you know.
(Geez, it is totally obvious in this post that I went to a Catholic school when I was a kid? ... sigh ...)
What happened this year is I was all on top of my game getting my Valentines made and addressed and ready to go to the post office tomorrow...
...until I realized I had written on the inside of probably 20 or so of them..."Happy VD!"
And now I'm worried that if I send them to someone kinda/sorta old like me, they'll think I'm prying into their... ummm.... you know... ummm... personal life and be all offended.
So now I have to go back to cards I messed up and put some paper over that message so I can say something more intelligent like "Happy Heart Day".
I'm certain that was a little practical joke from my sister.
I can just visualize her now, chuckling, "Ha! She wrote Happy VD on all those cards!"...
it just ticks me off.
If you get a Valentine from me and see a piece of paper double-sticked taped to the inside, just ignore it.
If you don't, you might find yourself with a ghost in your house.
