Sayings on Valentine’s Day hearts can make for an interesting conversation.
|"MELT MY ♥"
"How sweet, Li'l Heart! Is that a command or a confession?"
"Do I really do that for you, Li'l Heart? Do I lift you up to the heights?"
"GET MY DRIFT"
"I certainly think so."
"STIR MY HEART"
"Why, my dear Li'l Heart? Are you trying to cook up something with me?"
"SUGAR PIE HONEY BUN"
"O, My! Now, you're making me blush! By the way, don't you ever use punctuation?"
"CHEER ME ON BE MY HERO"
"I get it! You don't want me to question your methods! You just want me to give you encouragement! Done!"
"I LOVE YOU"
"My goodness! You don't waste time. Do you? I'm sorry. I'm in a long-term relationship."
"Yes! That's what I'm trying to say! It's an 'Ever After' kind of Love!"
"Why,...Thank You! I'm glad you're accepting this."
"WISE UP WRITE ME"
"Well, I suppose there can't be any harm in a letter or two. As long as we realize this can never be more than a platonic relationship."
"Let's see. This would have to be a friendship built on mutual trust and warm hearts. It can never be anything physical."
"You see. Now, that's what I'm talking about. I can't do that. I'm on a sugar-free diet. We can't get physical."
"LET’S READ BOOK CLUB"
"Certainly! That's really what I'm talking about. We can read and discuss books together. That'll work!"
"It's because you have accepted me for who I am. You're okay with that!"
"Thanks, but blue jeans and T-shirt make a very simple ensemble."
"UR A STAR RISING STAR"
"You're so kind. How did you know? Have you been talking with Ms. Gabriella?"
"YOU & ME TOO SWEET"
"INDEED! That's why it must always been platonic. Processed sugars are so hard on my body. I'm glad you understand."
"I think you should thank your parents, the NECCO company, for putting words on your side for so many years. They help you to communicate with the world."
"You're too kind. I just call it like I see it."
"LET’S DO LUNCH"
"Alright, as long as I can have a gluten-free and sugar-free menu. That would be wonderful!"
"Yes! Yes! Go on!"
"LOVE ME TENDER"
"I do in that truly honorable, platonic way of which I am capable."
"MY WAY I GOT U BABE"
"I know. I know. You've got that Sonny & Cher thing going on. But still..."
"LET IT BE"
"I'm afraid so."
"WALK ON BY"
"...And we can walk together in friendship."
"YOU GO, GIRL"
"Not exactly! I think that's my line."
"Yes, Way! I'm the guy. You are the girl."
"So I have been told."
"BE MY ICON"
"These are my JOTtings. JOT me a note sometime."
"That's right! Now you've got it!"
"IM UR FRIEND"
"Always and Forever."
