Since we first started dating about five years ago, I've been sending The Gryphon flowers at his office on Valentine's Day. This year, I thought I'd try something different and send him balloons, instead.
The place where I ordered them, though, wasn't offering delivery on Valentine's Day itself. The options were to have them sent on Tuesday, two days before Valentine's Day, or Friday, one day afterwards.
Remembering that the previous year, when we'd had snowy, treacherous weather, The Gryphon wasn't upset that his flowers arrived a day late, I ordered them for the 15th. Along with a message about how much I loved him, I said that the Bad Idea Bears had suggested I send it a day late so he'd be surprised.
