The Fonz Strikes Again

I was washing some dishes in the kitchen when I ran into The Fonz.

"I have a Valentine's Day present for you!" he exclaimed. "I'll be right back!"

I put my dishes away and braced myself for an awkward moment.

The Fonz returned with something behind his back. "This is not romantic," he announced. I was relieved. He then presented me with a day planner.

"They were giving these out for free at the college when I took my swim class today," he said. "I thought they were really cool so I grabbed some for all of my favorite people here. Happy Valentine's Day!"

I gave him the over-sized, coffee-stained print of The Delaware Water Gap that I've been meaning to pass off to him and wished him a happy Valentine's Day in return. He then went on a mission to find The Poet so he could give him a planner.

I have the quirkiest friends these days but I wouldn't have it any other way. Though the day planner moment was quite comical, I totally appreciated The Fonz's gesture. I think that a lot of people (myself included) get so focused on the aspect of l-o-v-e that they forget to acknowledge friendships on Valentine's Day.

And now I can organize my schedule like a functional member of society. Huzzah!

Anyway, that's all I've got for tonight. Perhaps my next post will be slightly more intelligent.


  1. That's pretty awesome. Yeah, the romantic love aspect is annoying. I think that's why I hate VDay out of all the holidays - it's so exclusive. While other holidays are about gathering with family and friends, this one seems to be more about couples and romantic love. I think it should be about friendship and family and love in a more universal sense. I had an amazing night at quiz night and laughed so much my head hurt. Beers were spilled, and dirty comments were made! We even spoke in Irish accents at one point.

  2. What a nice guy. And a good message too. It's now all about love on that holiday, though I think mine's permanately messed after yesterday. Meh. I'm officially changing Valentine's day into friends day, or a second St. Patties day. Something like that...

  3. I'm continuously jealous of the quirky people in your life.

  4. Who couldn't use a planner? I hope you put it to good use, and fill it with many fun plans.

  5. I love planners! I love office supplies in general. I don't know why. I went the extra mile this year and bought an organizer from Target - I love it. The only downside is that I used to keep my planner in my purse because it was compact enough, but my organizer is definitely to chunky, so I don't look in it as often, which makes me wonder if it's better for me than a day planner.


It makes my day when YOU leave me comments. :D
