I seek these out and eat them by the handful in the early weeks of February. On February 15th I wake up and realize they taste like chalk. Judging by how other adults are always pleased when I offer them fresh Sweethearts I am not the only one committed to the Valentine ideal we were sold in 1st Grade.

Do you hunker under your desk til the day melts in the slush, do you feel obligated to buy something for a loved one, or do you embrace the romance and celebrate?
