5pm. Two and a half weeks before Valentine’s Day.
Cynthia’s inbox is insanely inundated with Valentine’s Day themed newsletters.
She makes a decision, closes her computer, and heads into the living room where Marcy is having a standoff with a piece of carpet fuzz.
Cynthia: Since Valentine’s Day is coming up I thought we –
Marcy: I hate Valentine’s Day. It’s stupid.

Cynthia: I like hearts! And Etsy artisans have some lovely handmade heart items that can be worn and/or used all year long. Not just for Valentine’s Day! And best of all, you can buy these for yourself.
Cynthia: Aren’t these hearts adorable?
Marcy: I hate hearts.
Cynthia (exasperated): How can you hate hearts? There’s a heart on you!
Marcy: Who put that there? Get it off!
