Press releases I never finished reading
The subject line is "Valentine's Day -- It's Sooner Than You Think."
OK, I guess. It's always good to think ahead. And if you're planning to take your sweetie out to dinner, it wouldn't be a bad idea to make reservations at your favorite restaurant pretty soon. (Valentine's Day falls on a Thursday this year, in case you're wondering. See how informative reading this blog can be?)
Anyway, I trashed the press release, from a company called Pure Romance, when I got to the second Valentine's Day Tip: ...
2) Communicate. The gift of communication is more important than chocolate.
WHAT? Right there they lost me. That is the most ridiculous thing I ever heard. In fact, it's not too early to put in your order at one of these fine local chocolatiers. And don't forget that Glarus has opened a second shop downtown since that earlier post.
