Tammy: Hey, do you have plans for Sunday?
RC: Yes, laundry.
T: Will you be my valentine?
RC: Um, is Scott out of town?
T: No, but I don't think he will want to go to the bridal show with me.
And that my loyal reader, is how I, the consummate single person who is not a fan of Valentine's Day even when in a relationship, have ended up with plans to go to a bridal show on Black Sunday. (Note: it would be Black Monday if Valentine's Day was on a Monday, etc. and so forth.)
It's also important to note that Tammy called me back less than 5 minutes later. I answer the phone as follows:
Are you breaking up with me?
Nope. We're still going to the bridal show. I can only hope there will be some good cake to taste as I doubt I'll be receiving flowers and a box of chocolates.
