Valentine's Day and The Recession
I've been thinking about Valentine's Day.
It's my job.
This year, more than ever, it looms large.
To be honest, I'm stressed...
And definitely hyper-focused.
I have lists dating back to the 90's.
Records of what flowers I bought,
what was sold, what was left.
what we could have used more of,
what we should have had less of.
This year, the lousy economy casts a long shadow.
There is also the fact that The Day falls on Saturday
and the following Monday is President's Day...
A 4 Day Weekend!
Will people go away?
Or will people opt to be home and "staycation"?
I will know on February 15th.
I'm thinking six Roses and some filler fluff is the Recession Dozen.
More ideas to come.
