Given to Mary from Angie.

Ahh, today is Valentine's Day.  Whitman's chocolates and roses and cupid figures and love songs and fuzzy, pink sweaters.  Do those ring any bells for you?  Or perhaps you're married and the most you get from your spouse is a grunt and a head nod.  Perhaps that's all you get any day of the year.  I don't know and I don't judge.  But for everyone reading, here's a get lost in it, don't want to leave it, gimmie some more sugar baby, this is divine, I'm booking you for next year, hug!

There's a certain randomness to when people sign up for days in this year's gift exchange, but today was no coincidence.  Out of all the people in the world, I picked Mary as my Valentine's Day exchanger.  Why?  Well, silly goose, it's because Mary's awesome and a sweetheart and she's on the cusp of being in my T-Mobile Fave Five!
