Hey, you okay, MG? You look bummed out. I mean, more than usual.

Hi, Jay. Yeah. I just...

Just what?

Something just doesn't add up.

What's that?

Leah's boyfriend is always sending her crap at the office, right?

Yeah. He used to. I haven't seen much lately, but yeah.

And it's always stuff that you can't miss, right? Like that huge red teddy bear, and the balloon bouquet, and that damned frog that sang every time someone walked past?

Yeah. True, hard to miss.

And then she always reads the gross, mushy card out loud to everyone who gets within earshot for three days, right?

That's for sure.

So, how come on Valentine's day, he suddenly sends her something that's actually tasteful, with no card?

Hm. Good point. Maybe he changed?

Uh, Jay?

Yeah, yeah. You're right. Huh. That is strange. What do you think it means?

I don't know. But I do know that someone who doesn't even know what an orchid is shouldn't be getting them for Valentine's day.
