** Nerdy post alert**
My family adores Bruce Springsteen. It’s been ingrained in our personalities since birth that Springsteen is the man. I was listening to The Boss on the way into work the other and had the funny idea to make Springsteen Valentines. You see, Bruce is pretty much the only person who can get away with telling a woman that they are just OK looking, but he loves them anyway. Any other man would get slapped for a comment like that, yet women still swoon over Bruce.
Off the top of my head, I could think of two instances in which Springsteen pulls this line. So I made my step mom and little sister cards with those lyrics:
“You ain’t a beauty, but hey you’re all right.” – Thunder Road
“I just can’t understand it, you’re not pretty at all. But I come when you whisper, I run when you call.” – I wanna be with you
I’m positive there are more examples, but none come to mind just yet.
Anyway, here’s the simple card I made for my Springsteen-loving family members — I’d never give them to anyone else because they would be so offended. But if you love The Boss, you’d love to get these valentines.
Hope you all had a great Valentine’s Day. B made a yummy breakfast and bought me some beautiful flowers. Then we got our favorite pizza for dinner and watched The Interview.
In other news, Brian was concerned Remmy was cold since it is all of 9 degrees in Maryland. So I gave Remmy and old hoodie, which was simultaneously the most adorable and hilarious thing ever.
He wore it all afternoon and slept in it last night. That dog never fails to crack me up.
