My First Valentine

Last night, I had Valentine’s Day Dinner with my first Valentine. No, it is not of the romantic kind. It was with Mum. We are both recovering from a bad bout of flu. First, the sore throat wore us down. Next came the phlegm and itch in the throat. I am feeling much better now but Mum is still on antibiotics.

I received a very cute Valentine card from Wuan. It is a picture of a Bubblegum cartoon squeezing a heart balloon with the words: “I know a good thing when I squeeze it!” I really cannot imagine a guy my age would still find cards like this endearing. But then again, anything from Wuan is endearing. She takes pain to find just the right gift. Always!
