Sending You a Little Love from Beantown

14 Feb

I’m in Boston for work, which means I’m spending Valentine’s Day away from Alan. That’s fine by me – not because I don’t miss him, but because I tend to believe you shouldn’t just show someone you love them one day a year. So by that standard, Alan does a pretty great job of making every day February 14.

Since I don’t make a big deal out of Valentine’s Day, it was the farthest thing from my mind when I stepped out to grab a coffee this morning. The streets of Boston were desserted, barring a line of cabs idling in front of my hotel.

The last cabbie in line, an older gentleman, was out wiping down his windshield as I walked past. “Happy Valentine’s Day!” he called. “May you get everything you deserve and more!”

I have to admit, it made me smile. Not just because he said it, but also because it reminded me, when it comes to the important stuff: I already have.

So just in case no one has said it to you yet…

Happy Valentine’s Day. May you get everything you deserve and more!

    Today my cab driver in Egypt said that all the traffic was caused by Valentine’s Day. I think it was because there are roughly 20 million people that live in Cairo.

    totally agree with you…we shouldn’t show some one that we love them one day a year…

    You’re really very sweet, ma’am. My first impulse was to say every day is February 29, because that’s how rare it feels to meet someone like you. But if that’s pushing your sentimental side too far, I’ll just say that I love getting credit for romance throughout the year AND dodging the annual candy-buying obligation. Other things I love? You.
