The City of Laredo attempted to crack down on curbside vendors this Valentine's Day gifts. They warned the public that permits and zoning would be taken into account. But I don't think people got the message because the parking lot of Super S on Clark Blvd. was packed with people selling stuffed animals and what not yesterday.
I don't know why people sell such big arrangements (basket with stuffed animal; candy, etc) by the side of the road when a little box of candy will do. And dinner, of course. And flowers and a fourteen stanza'd poem. And a declaration of love for your sweetheart on Twitter, and Facebook. Also, don't forget the 5x7 ad in your local paper. A little love note on your spouse's dashboard. Naturally, a late-night viewing of "The Notebook." Foot massage. Fine jewelry. A slow dance with Josh Groban playing in the background, followed by a serenade with your newly-acquired guitar skills.
Happy Valentine's Day!
