Should Have Bought Her A Shrubbery

, | Romantic | February 27, 2013

(I’m a big fan of “Monty Python and the Holy Grail.” My boyfriend isn’t so big into it. Neither of us are too interested in St. Valentine’s Day, but make some sort of effort regardless. I am reading the card he has given me.)

Front of card: “If I said you had a great body…”

(Written underneath, he has crossed out ‘Would you hold it against me?’, and replaced it.)

Front of card: “Would you beat me with a brick?”

(He then writes this.)

Inside of card:

“To my Valentine,

Roses are red,
Violets are blue,
The airspeed velocity of an un-laden European swallow is roughly eleven metres per second.”

(Best Valentine’s poem ever!)
