"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.
