It's Valentine's Day!

"Happy artificial holiday with strong commercial overtones."  Lee handed me a wrinkled white paper bag.  She was wearing a shirt with a heart on it.  I guess in honor of Valentine's Day.  Except it was a real heart.

"Happy that to you, too."  I looked inside the bag and shook it a bit.  Jelly beans.  All black.  "I don't have anything for you."

"Reciprocity is not manditory," she said.

"Now that would make a good T-shirt."
