"Why I am Not Allowed to Make My Own Valentines Anymore"
Many moons ago, when yours truly was in second grade or thereabouts, she insisted that she could do all of her classmates' Valentines by herself.
She worked hard at them, carefully addressing and putting a personal message on each one.
She was excited to hand them out at school the next day!
The next day dawned and she walked through the classroom, depositing her cards into the construction paper heart envelopes attached to each chair.
By the end of the day, trouble loomed.
Her mother was called to school to explain just why her daughter had filled the cards with personal (albeit a bit honest) messages to each student?
"Happy Valentine's Day. You look funny."
"Happy Valentine's Day. You smell."
and her personal favorite:
"Happy Valentine's Day you big monster."
What could have been wrong with those? She never quite understood why Mom only let her sign her name on them for the remainder of her school years...
Oh come on... does this look like anything except the face of an innocent 2nd-grader?
