Quotes of the Day for 14 February 2002 – Love

I recently heard a story about a department of six people in a company that allowed flexible hours, but there had to be someone in the department every day. They each put in for the days they wouldn't work - travel, birthdays, children's graduations, and all of them put in for the day they proposed or were proposed to. This all worked until February rolled around, and one of the team had their birthday on the 14th, and the other five were married following proposals made on the 14th. I thought that wasn't likely, until I remembered that I proposed to my wife on the 14th of February years ago. I know it's trite, but here's to romance and lovers everywhere!
