The best Valentine's Day I can remember experiencing was the one when I was in grade 2 (I think). During lunchtime, I opened my lunch box and found an awe-inspiring card from my parents that had a majestic, glittering unicorn across the front, telling me how much my Valentine loved me.
Then I went on the swings and jumped off the seat, sailing magnificently through the air after the 100th swing. THEN, after school was over, we handed out our Valentine's cards to our friends and among the lame crap, I got a card with Clarissa from Clarissa Explains It All. It was possibly one of the most epic Valentine's cards I have ever received (almost beating the unicorn one I had received earlier in the day).
Afterwards, a few friends and I played a rousing game of Robot Tea Party while we waited for our parents to pick us up, using the cup-like ends of our Thermoses as tea cups and pretending the water we poured was oil. (Robots can't drink tea, silly; they drink oil!)
What can be learnt from all of this? Well, obviously, that if you give someone a card with Clarissa riding a unicorn, they will most likely explode from awesome-overload.
