Di, of Pensitivity101, is our host for Truthful Tuesday. Today being Valentine’s Day, Di asks us:
Have you ever received a Valentine’s card or gift and never knew who it was from?
Interestingly enough, years ago my wife received a card in the mail addressed to her. There was no return address and her name and address on the outside of the envelope were written in large, uniform, block letters. Inside of the envelope was a card, on the front of which was written…
From Out of the Blue
A Valentine’s Day Card Just For You,
When my wife opened up the card, written in the same, large, uniform, block letters was…
DO YOU KNOW WHAT YOUR HUSBAND REALLY DOES?
When I came home from work that night, my none-too-happy wife handed me the card and asked, “Can you explain this?”
I was dumbstruck. I looked at the postmark on the envelope and it was stamped South Boston. I knew no one who lived in South Boston. I couldn’t even attempt to identify the handwriting because the letters were all block letters. I looked at my wife, shrugged my shoulders, and said, “I have no idea who sent this. More important, I have no idea why someone would sent this. Either it’s a prank or someone is trying to break up our marriage.”
Eventually she believed me and, years later, to this day, I still don’t know who sent that “poison” Valentine’s Day card or why.
