The Valentine's gift I was just about to order when your breakup email came in doesn't know it was thisclose to finding a home. It doesn't know it would've been in my hands in a few days and in yours a few days later and that we both would've cooed over it as if it were my cat and she were rolling around on her back on the floor doing something cute (e.g. breathing). I silently apologize to it and tell it I hope it finds a good home. Still, I know nobody will appreciate it quite the same way.
