Now, I know it’s about 41 days until Christmas, but I have no idea how many days there are until Valentine’s Day, because it’s not even on my radar yet. Hell, I’ve got to get through the next three months before Valentine’s Day will even be a glimmer on my screen.
But the good PR folks at Dempsey & Carroll, one of my favourite stationers, are already out there pushing for us to order our Valentine’s Day cards. I am probably not even going to figure out what I am sending for Christmas cards until, oh, about December 24th! D&C… please let us get past these upcoming holidays before you barrage us to buy for the next one. If good PR was your mission in sending this e-mail reminder, you failed.
