On this day, 5 years ago, a newly engaged couple were on their way to Valentine's dinner at The Cheesecake Factory in Redondo Beach, California. They were having a bit of a row, and were silent for a few minutes when a promoter came on the radio saying that the Krispy Kreme in Gardena, a mere 20 minutes away, was doing drive through weddings. He looked at her, raised his eyebrows, she raised hers, he got into the left lane to U-turn.
They chickened out. "Naaaaah," they said in unison. "My mom would kill me," she said. They went back on their way to The Cheesecake Factory, but aborted the mission when they saw a line that went all the way back to Hermosa Beach. They went to California Pizza Kitchen instead, and were happily married the next month. 5 years later, she still thinks it would have been super cool. After all, they were giving out a free dozen to the happy couple.
So Happy Valentine's Day to the love of my life, and a Happy Valentine's Day to all of you.
