Well, when February 14 rolls around we all know what we are supposed to start thinking about, right?  Red roses, chocolates and heart emojis.

Surprisingly, my little bookstore business used to do very well on Valentine’s Day — notice I said on the day? I clearly recall a rush of men around 5 o’clock every Feb. 14 who would buy out my stock of poetry books about love. Ahh, yes. Those were the days.
