Truthful Tuesday — Anonymous Valentine’s Day Card

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…


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.

    There are some people for whom vinegar is the sweetest drink, and who love to sow discontent for the joy it gives them; perhaps out of jealousy.

    That was truly a rotten thing for someone to do whether out of spite or as a prank. I do like Newepicauthor’s comment that maybe you had clandestine connections with the mob. *snort*

    How sinister……….. and unkind. I bet if you did find out, they’d have a black eye from you and the other blacked by your wife!

    Interesting. Hmm. South Boston, home of the Irish criminal class. Does anyone REALLY know what his or her mate does in the dark, in the shadows…

    To receive a message such as that, it would poke a whole in a perfect life. Cast doubt on something that was never questioned. I hope she was able to dismiss that and that somehow, when she is alone, that random time does not pop back up into her mind.

      We seemed to have gotten past that, but who knows what thoughts of it might pop into her head from time to time. Both she and I agree that there’s nothing to be gained by discussing it.

        That last part sounds more like it. Nothing gained from revisiting together but we are human are we not. But thank you for sharing.

    That is awful! I think you said your identity was stolen once, was this around that time? I can’t believe someone would be so cruel. So glad she believed you.
