Valentine's Day is three weeks from today. I was inspired to give this reminder because I recently heard that one of the busiest days at Papa Murphy's Pizza is Valentine's Day.
Really? Papa Murphy's sells heart shaped pizzas on February 14th. But the fact that they are busier on that day than most others makes me think of the following narrative:
Man driving home from work on February 14th. Man sees Papa Murphy's Sign: "Get your Heart-Shaped Pizza for Valentine's Day." Mans slams on brakes and turns across two lanes of traffics to pull into Papa Murphy's. Man triumphantly brings home dinner and knows that at long last, he "remembered" Valentine's Day.Really?
Don't let that be you.
If you want to get your wife a heart-shaped pizza on Valentine's Day, at least have it be because you thought of it ahead of time. If you'd rather skip V-day all together and do something special for her another day that is also fine, so long as you've planned it. But don't be that guy.
