good one?

February 14, 2012

when i was in early junior high…
we had our sexual education class
(sexed = maybe not the best idea for an abbr. in this case)
i learned about venereal disease
without the maturity/subtlety to realize
that this was not appropriate joke fodder for a near child
come valentine’s day
when we all had to exchange those little cardboard cut out
disney/superhero/garfield/generic – be mine cards
(which at that age had been pretty unbearable for a few years)
on all the ones i gave out
underneath all the pink hearts
and illustrated naked babies shooting bow and arrows…
i wrote:

Happy VD day!
Hope you catch a good one!

i’m still waiting on the raucous laughter
or nods of knowing amusement
that i expected

Happy Day
and i hope you do
No. Wait. i mean –
be careful out there?
even more –
be good to each other.
