As we’ll be very busy on Valentine’s weekend* I would like to leave the following lines to my partnerless-but-still-hopeful friends, to encourage you and let you know that there is a happy ever after, that there are second chances, and that love is still as perennial as the molave (i mean the tree, not the other xxx). Yes, Cora, that includes YOU.
But as you ARE still partnerless (can’t help it, i gotta rub it in) here’s my virtual elbow jab at you.
Murphy’s Laws on Love:
All the good ones are taken.
If the person isn’t taken, there’s a reason.
The nicer someone is, the farther away (s)he is from you.
The amount of love someone feels for you is inversely proportional to how much you love them.
Every kind action has a not-so-kind reaction.
The good ones die first.
Availability is a function of time. The minute you get interested is the minute they find someone else.
Happy Valentine’s Day, y’all!
