Is it me, or…

Is this like, the least romantic potential Valentines Day gift? Thanks Hallmark for extending this holiday so far, it is now appropriate to hawk fridge filters as potential love tokens.

“Here honey, I got you a fridge filter! Let’s drink water and make out!”.

I suppose I could have gotten a Valentine’s Day Colostomy Bag Promo email, but still. Fridge filters are not romantic.  Maybe if you’re dying of dysentery from polluted water this would be a grand gesture, but I doubt that at that point you’d have a fridge with a filter.

Blargh.

Wait. I just realized that this email was sent THE DAY BEFORE VALENTINE’S.

So it’s even better.

Here’s the scene:

“Honey! Happy Valentine’s Day. I got you a fridge filter. Let’s drink water and make out.”

“Oh, uh, thanks hon. How thoughtful. Where is it?”

“Oh, I bought it online yesterday, so it will be here in 5-7 business days.”

“Oh. Okay.”

“So do you want to watch Dan Rather Reports? There’s a special on Elder Abuse on tonight.”

“Sounds great hon.”

    Haha. Since Nader will be in Uganda for V-day, maybe I should’ve gotten him a portable version.
