Blast from the past
« on: November 08, 2019, 01:11:17 PM »
Due to some technical glitch, thousands of text messages sent on Valentine's Day this year but never received were suddenly delivered on Wednesday, a mere 8 months late and occasionally from people since deceased. Apart from anything the else the unfortunate timing means a lot of people probably got ''Luv U!!'' texts from exes they've long since finished with/heard from/buried under the patio.

There must be a few adulterers counting their blessings right now.

A mess of the trouser variety, of course.

But on a serious note: I'm glad that Valentine's Day has retreated into the world of social media. Is there anything more embarrassing than getting a Valentine's card from someone you don't fancy back? And they sit and watch you open it. Yeesh.

Hardly. I was thinking back on my acne-ridden teenage years, and my admirer was nothing to brag about. I associate Valentine's cards with awkwardness and profound sadness.

So that's why I got a picture of a shoe along with "you could be having this".
