I tried to tell you I love you

It’s the 15th of February - one day after Valentine’s Day - and I’m feeling a little down. The reasons aren’t obvious. It has nothing to do with being single, or not getting chocolates and flowers. In fact, I wasn’t alone on the 14th, and I did receive chocolates and a card (which is better than a bunch of roses that will wilt in two days).

The reason why I’m down is because I didn’t get to wish everyone a happy Valentine’s Day. True, there was a post, but only right people read Human Nature.

For the past several years, I’ve been sending cards to a group of people, wishing them love and happiness on that day in case they don’t have someone to remind them that there is someone (a.k.a. me) that likes/loves them. If I can’t have someone make me feel good, I might as well try and make someone else feel it.

But, there was a problem: Hallmark was on the fritz.

Frustration begins as I spend hours on the site, trying (almost frantically) to put in my order. It’s no use. Even after several tries, it’s not going to happen. I have to admit the fact that I can’t make everyone happy all - or even some - of the time. And, because of that, I’m a little down.

So, to any/all of those who didn’t receive a card, just remember that I tried to tell you I love you. Unfortunately, I have to say it a day late.

Nice cover.

Just kidding. I had the same problem! You'd think they'd bolster up their fucking servers so people wouldn't feel guilty over being unable to send an e-card and having to resort to a pink and red lettered email. Jeesus.

Flowers last longer than Chocolates in my experience! :)

I did, in fact, receive your e-card, and was very happy you included me.
