something for you, something for me

Today I put my daughter in line to exchange a Valentine's Day card with Curious George.  This costumed adult was probably four times the size of the "real" Curious George which made me wonder why they didn't just use a puppet.  Understandably, she looked stunned.  I walked away feeling sheepish and a little embarrassed that I had taken part in the commercialization of the holiday.  But then she wouldn't put down her Valentine, kept smiling at it, nibbling on it and asking where Curious George was.  Okay fine, no harm done.  Plus, I got us each something to pass the afternoon.   :)
