A Friendly Reminder Before You Mail Those Cards Off

So I know everybody’s rushing to get their valentine cards in the mail and I’m sorry if this is too late for you. But, thing to remember, when these cards are received and unpacked they’re left in the stock room for goodness knows how long. And even a store that’s being nice and tidy is still going to have insects wandering around, rodents, the occasional bird that gets in and doesn’t know how to get out, or figures the stock room is a better way to spend the winter than the outdoors is. So, y’know, don’t overreact to the threat of animal-transmitted diseases, but be sensible. Wash any cards before you mail them out. If you aren’t sure your sender is washing the cards, run them through the dishwasher or the laundry before you open them. You’ll be glad you did!

    1. It’s easy to remember the alternatives. You can microwave for 50 seconds, boil for 15 minutes, or bake (350 Fahrenheit) for 50 minutes. Me, I think the boiling leaves you with a better texture, but it is so much easier to microwave. I don’t fault anyone for preferring the method they choose. Each to their happiness.


    1. You know, I’m not worried about Leroy. I’m not sure why, but I get the feeling he’s assiduous about washing his hands. Loretta too.

      Now, that couple from the Better Half, that sure seemed like a Lockhorns ripoff even though it started a dozen years earlier? They washed their hands, like, twice ever.
