It’s Valentine’s Day! In high school and college, I tried to pretend that I didn’t love Valentine’s Day because I didn’t think I was supposed to…but I do love Valentine’s Day. For some reason, my family has always done something special for the day and that has stuck with me over the years. My mom would always buy my brother and I a box of candy and a little stuffed animal. Since moving out and eventually being in my own apartment, my mom still goes out of her way to get me a little something for Valentine’s Day. Last year she surprised me with sour candies, which was awesome because I prefer them over chocolate. Well, yesterday, I got home really late and totally forgot that she had a key to my place and then, there, on the kitchen table, was the sweetest, most tear-gushing card, a new little friend, and a yummy yummy red velvet cake.
So, in case I haven’t convinced you yet that Dago is the greatest boyfriend in the history of the universe, let me tell you a little story.
