There's Truth in Advertising

I'm rarely a huge fan of greeting cards.
It seems as though you spend endless minutes (which feel more like hours) searching for that just-right card and you end up settling for something that's kinda-close-but-not-really.
Somehow, though, the SO found one that I agree with.

I won't quote it all, but just the pertinent part:

Real love isn't found in the falling - it's found in the staying . . . the day-to-daying . . . the ups and downs and the smiles and frowns . . .

Here's hoping you all find your Real Love.

Now back to your regularly scheduled BS and sarcasm.

Let me know if you find a "you're fiancee is an asshole and everyone knows it but you" card. I need it by November.

Burg - Ooohhh! I know a few people who need those cards. It would also be helpful if there was a "your fiancee is a bi*&% and everyone knows it but you" card. Unfortunately, I think we're all out of luck. Perhaps we should try Print Shop?

Do they even still make Print Shop?? :)

I could never find the right card. So, I bought blank cards made of some nice paper... and make my own. Now, they are all right :)

I can never give mushy cards, but yet I know that the card shouldn't be too crass.
I should have just followed my brother's lead. When he was 4, before he could read, he gave our Dad a card for Christmas. All good, except for the fact it had a picture of a gentleman in a sombrero and the caption, "Hey there meester, get off your keester and get well soon". This was also in the early 70's before the PC movement came through.

A relationship is a lot like dieting. It's easy to lose the weight, but not so easy to keep it off.

A man who is a loving husband and a caring father can be an asshole to anyone else, and that's perfectly fine.

TC said...

I love card shopping... and I always seem to find what I want EXCEPT the card you two are talking about, sigh.

The one you quoted is really cute... and true.

Scotty - Very nice! Heartfelt sentiments are almost always more meaningful than store-bought ones.

Jon - Hilarious. Tell me you've blogged that story.

Carl - You've lost me.

TC - I love shopping for FUN cards like friendship cards and thinking of you cards, but birthday cards and Valentine's and Anniversaries . . ugh. It's the pits.

Family comes first. And you shouldn't trust anyone else either.
