I couldn’t resist writing a last-minute gag for Valentine’s Day. But I ended up writing four different punchlines for the guy in this comic.
—One sorta sweet. (“You bet!”)
—One sorta rude. ( “I’ve had worse!”)
—One sorta sexy. (“Happy Valentine’s Night!”)
—And the sorta silly one I ended up using.
Which is best? Beats me. For sheer schmaltz, though, I’d vote for the caption in the original romance comic from the 1960s:
WOMAN: Happy Valentine's Day?
MAN: So far? Not bad!
