Scene: Last week, driving 5 year old son home from preschool.
Kid: Mom, I'm sad.
Kid: I don't have anything to give you for Valentine's Day.
Me: That's OK, I don't want anything for Valentine's Day. You love me, I love you, and that's enough.
Kid: But I need to get you something.
Me: No, you don't. You see, Valentine's Day is a Hallmark Holiday. A company called Hallmark made it up so people would feel obligated to buy things like cards and candy and roses.
Kid: [pause] That sucks.
