All's Fair

Ah, the joy of holidays in elementary school! In the spirit of fairness, each child must give a Valentine to every member of their class. You know, all the boys and girls decorate a box to receive equal opportunity heart-shaped candy and cards. Michael's instructions were a bit terse for this holiday celebrating affection, but very clear. I guess when sharing love is compulsory it loses a little something.

To continue his minimalist theme, all he had to do in order to put his name on the box was convert the N to an M. I'm not sure which grade Michael was in when he created this box, but I do know in-class Valentine parties ended at fifth grade. I am amused by his pragmatic approach to this most illogical of holidays.
