Thank You, Hallmark

Dear Hallmark,


Thank you so much for making the Pokemon valentines that my son picked out to give to his class for Valentine's day. I love that you only sent one package to the store so that my 2 boys could fight over them. It's great to have a 5 year old crying over valentine's in the store because there is only one box of Pokemon. The other shoppers really enjoyed that show.


And it was so nice of you to include stickers in the box. That was a great trick that you played on us! So clever to write "30 Valentines plus stickers." We actually thought that there were 30 valentines and 30 stickers. But nope. There were 30 valentines and 14 stickers. What a wonderful lesson in division. My son figured that we can cut each sticker in half to have enough for the entire class. Who would have thought that a box of valentines comes with a math lesson too?!


Once again, Thank you, Hallmark. I can't wait for next Valentine's Day.


Mom

LOL!! how weird about the stickers!! i hate it when there's only one thing and my boys fight over it like it's life and death.

Uh-huh. I got screwed on the sticker deal last year. What's up with that?

Wait, they don't have enough stickers? That's stoop-it. Here's hoping that the Valentine's we find (mean, I find and buy and bring home) don't have such lovely surprises to them!
