Valentines for the Real World

(Originally published 2/1/2/13) 
Last night I went to Target and I got distracted by the card section. I decided to buy my beloved Cap'n Coupon a nice Valentine. But I could not find one - not one - that I even remotely liked. And then I made the mistake of looking at how much they cost.

HOLY MOTHER OF GANDALF. When did greeting cards start costing upwards of $5? If I bought my husband a $6 greeting card he would be like: "What are you doing? Are you trying to upset me? Why don't you just write 'Happy Valentine's Day' on a $5 bill and then throw it away?"

So I decided to come up with a series of Valentine's Day Cards for the real world. The Cap'n even helped me a little.

I have learned over the past three years that you guys are waaaayyyy smarter and funnier than I am. If you have any ideas or suggestions for more Valentine's Day Cards for the Real World, post them in the comments section and I will turn them into Valentines and post them between now Thursday.
