I see everyone is doing Valentine’s Day posts today, and who am I to stray from the flock.
Today The Goon Squad was introduced to a family tradition – giving inappropriate cards for the occasion.
It started off simply. The first card Gabe ever gave me was in a foreign language. Something good too – not Spanish or French or German. I wish I could remember, maybe Hungarian. I thought it was hysterical.
Today, The Goon Squad and I got him a huge oversized card with Barbie on it. It said “You go girl!” I thought that was pretty good until I saw the cards he got us. Ian’s card says “You’re a Great Youth Pastor!” and mine says “Congratulations on your retirement from the priesthood”. But the one for Claudia was my favorite. The outside reads “It must really confuse you when you fly and they ask first class or coach?” And the inside says “Because you’re both”. That is funny stuff, and if you don’t think so then it’s a good thing you didn’t marry Gabe or me.
Mine didn’t come out quite as sweet, as you can see here, but we (well, okay, I) still had a good time taking them.
Happy Valentine’s Day everybody!
