Comments: Be My Valentine

Does he plan on making a special valentine's card for Miss "Thang", the one who makes him fall off the bench? I'm guessing the teachers probably just have them bring in two piles, cards for boys and for girls. It's just as well, as that would defuse any "mean" cards that some kids would target for those they don't like.

He's not supposed to make a special card for any body, but it wouldn't surprise me if one of the ones he wrote "I love you." on winds up in a certain cute little girl's envelope.

Dare I ask which uncle?
Because I find one potential candidate to be a very funny and somewhat apropo situation.

Not that one, Blair. One of the uncles on the other side and The Boy have a very special relationship. They like to draw cartoons of themselves flushing the other down the toilet and things of that ilk. One of the heads might easily wind up getting labelled with the uncle's name before it gets sent, knowing how these things go.

Tee hee. It's hard to be a boy's boy at a hippie German school.

My boys have an uncle like that -- Dr Weevil.

Well, should he ever draw a picture of the other uncle with their head on a post, I might be interested in purchasing it. Joke, sort of, we are friends after all.
Lovely, though that uncle, the one with the flushing toilet pictures, sounds like a fabulous uncle!

For some light reading, may I suggest this for the boy? I couldn't, unfortunately, find any more gruesome description of the Martyrdom, but I thought he might appreciate what explanation there is. His beheading card might actually be more in keeping with the patron saint of the day.
