$0.12

That’s how much I paid for my post-Valentine’s Day box of chalk-like conversation hearts. I always get the feeling that they were made like 2 decades ago and have just been waiting around for someone like me to buy them. My el-cheapo box included such cool “conversations” as:

Missing the 4 but I like this phrase better anyway.

My, my! These things have gotten saucy over the years! Actually, I much prefer these more adult poorly edited hearts to the perfectly square-sounding hearts.

I guess if I ever have kids I’ll have to buy this holiday crap on time. But for now I love getting the 75% off day-after Halloween candy corn, Cadbury egg and, of course, my chalky Valentine’s hearts. I’ll gladly pay 12 cents for nostalgia.

  1. Oh yes. After holidays is definitely the best time to buy…esp after Halloween and Easter!

    hehe..jump me. cute

  2. It would take more than a chemical-laden chalky heart for me to jump anyone, but those little chocolate Cadbury eggs that come in the purple bag (not the gross kind with a “yolk,” mind you) are a different story. I would jump just about anything for those, which can make spotting them in the grocery store on sale a bit uncomfortable for others.
