Happy Over-Commercialization of Love Day!

Dear 1-800-Flowers.com,


Thank you for proving the notion that Valentine's Day is just another excuse for out-of-control price gouging. 80 bucks for 6 roses? (sorry, the stupid balloons don't count in my book)

Six gorgeous roses + six romantic balloons = The Perfect Dozen! Surprise them with our arrangement of six stunning long stem roses, designed by our select florists with fresh greens in a classic glass vase. This terrific gift gets topped with a half dozen romantic I love you mylar balloons to send their heart soaring! Rose color and balloon designs may vary. Arrangement measures approximately 20"H x 10"D. $79.99

Haha that is perhaps the best way of describing the hell that is Valentine's Day. Glad I happened upon your blog to see that little nugget of wisdom. :)
