My amazing friend Genevieve lives in Australia. I miss her, but she is very happy there. I also really loved Melbourne when I visited for several months (my sister lived there), so I get to picture her walking around doing fun Australian things. Like ordering coffee with bizarre names that don’t exist anywhere else. (“A Flat White, please?”)
Because it is another time and, often another day in Australia, I woke up this morning to the best Valentine I have ever received. The sheer creativity involved made me gasp. It was so good that it has redeemed the entire holiday. Gen loves Valentin’s Day, and her opinion gets extra weight because she has a zero-tolerance policy when it comes to unhappy relationships. She’s perpetually single because the woman does not settle. Which means that she is happy, single, and will not be unhappy just for a boyfriend. You know, it’s hard to explain that, because I’ve never met anyone like Genevieve. Which means that you might not ever have met anyone like Gen, so you may have no idea what I’m talking about. I’ll just show you the Valentine.
Oh, and Gen? If this is what V-Day is about then I get why you like it so much. I like this kind of Valentine’s Day, too!
