For the last 25yrs of my life I had never ever received a single Valentine’s card. I wasn’t actually bothered by this as I have created a thick skin and just ignored the whole charade.
However, last year I received my first Valentine’s card…..I couldn’t hide my excitement. I told everybody at work, posted it on my facebook and couldn’t wait to find out who it was from.
That evening I visited my mums house and decided to taunt my brother about it as he hadn’t got a single card (he normally gets loads). I was in his face dancing and constantly reading the card in front of him. He eventually got that annoyed he admitted that he had sent the card as he felt sorry for me.
The embarrassment still haunts me!
