|Valentine's Day is on its way, Friends!|
Are you ready? Have ya made your fancy Valentine's Day mailbox so your coworkers know where to put their Valentines to you?
If not, you can always tape a paper bag with a heart-shaped doily on it to your desk. I mean, that'd be the conservative approach to a Valentine's Day mailbox. That'd be the no muss, no fuss way to get your Valentine's Day Mailbox out of the way and put out so people can start fillin' it.
Me? I think we all oughtta make a SPLASH with our Valentine boxes, Friends! You know I'm gonna! I mean, look at my outfit today, Friends! Would a girl who wears zebra print and a proliferation of pink tulle really be happy puttin' a doily-decorated paper lunch bag on her desk to collect all the Valentines she's gonna get?
|Do ya have a cool mailbox all lined up in which to collect your cards?|
I mean, in this day and age with the Pinterest and the Internets, there's no excuse to have a lame Valentine Collector. There's no excuse for it! Take down that silly paper bag right now, put in a votive candle, and make a luminaria out of it. Create a little ambiance!
|Your Valentines mailbox should be a representation of your personality!|
My friend Sophie La Giraffe made a Valentine Mailbox that looks like a little pink house, and to put in your card, you open the front door! How about that?! Pinki the Little Giraffe brought in a real mailbox, approved by the Postmaster General, even, and it's painted with all sortsa heart-inspired designs. Pinki painted it herself, with a paintbrush held in her teeth!
It's so inspiring, what my friends can come up with, Big People. And it makes this time of year so much more fun, when you're walkin' through the department and ya see all these great mailboxes!
On the other hand, the Executives participate in Valentine's Day, too, and their suites aren't very sweet. Guess who went to the dang ol' Sams Club and picked up a hundred-pack of paper lunch bags, and also a hundred-pack of red heart doilies and a sizeable rolla Magic Tape: It was the executives!
And they say imagination is dead.
|Don't sweat the Valentines, Friends! I have ideas for you!|
Who knows? It could change their outlook for the rest of the year?
But for my good friends, and my coworkers I really have a lotta fun with, I like to give 'em something special on Valentine's Day. But nothing weird. I mean, you know? You don't wanna turn Valentine's Day at the office into a Day of Weirdness, do you? I sure as heck don't wanna!
So instead of giving out real hugs and kisses, I like to make up goodie bags with Hershey's chocolate Hugs and Kisses, and put a tag on that says "Hugs and Kisses from Your Pal Zoe!" Isn't that clever?
Or if chocolate isn't really your thing or the thing of your friends and co-workers, you could throw together a little goodie bag with little bottles of hand sanitizer, some Emergen-C or Airborne, and a little pack of Kleenexes, with a tag that says "Sharing is caring on Valentine's Day. Except germs. Don't share germs. Use hand sanitizer! Love, Your Pal Zoe!" Or whatever your name is. Don't sign 'Zoe' on things if your name isn't Zoe. People will get the wrong idea about both of us!
You wanna know what I'm gonna do for my List At Large this year, Friends? I had a buncha little Valentine's cards made up with Justin Bieber's picture on the front, and then on the back, they say 'Just a note from me to letchya know how pleased I am this Valentine's Day that you are NOT this guy!' and considering I ordered fifty of those cards, I'm glad there aren't fifty Justin Biebers running around everywhere.
Also, you can't go wrong with humor. You just cannot, Friends! Make your Valentines laugh with a punny joke, or a delightful riddle!
Keepin' it simple. Keepin' it real. That's what I'm all about, Friends.
|I made my Valentine's Day mailbox to look like a pinata, because I still want a pinata!|
Well, Valentine's Day is only two weeks away, so we'd all better get crackalackin' on our mailboxes! Remember. Don't be lame! Don't phone this in!
I love ya, Friends!
I'll see ya tomorrow! Muah!
