The preparations are in place

I am now in the proper mindset for Valentine’s Day:

Vintage Valentine card

What? Oh, they’re not so bad. Martin Luther endured an entire Diet of Worms.

    OUCH, that’s a terrible pun.

    I’m sure that card was designed to be sent to the object of an unrequited crush, to let him or her know just how cruel they were for failing to notice the sender’s existence.

    Passive-aggressiveness: Not just a 21st century phenomenon.

    (That said: there are some worms you CAN eat. Wichetty grubs, anyone?)

    There is also a popular sung version of this verse, which, if anything, is more so. Passive-aggressive, I mean.

    Yeah, but when I was a kid, it was more commonly sung when someone got upset over losing at checkers or something, not so much over actual unrequited love. It was used as sort of a taunt over someone getting upset about something probably not worth getting upset over.
