IHO of YA Highway’s Valentine’s Day Lovefest.
This Valentine’s Day, there are too many things to love. Like, my husband, and laughter, and friendships in which grammar jokes are fully appreciated.
How my cat’s paws won’t grip on our hardwood floor, so whenever he tries to run he slides all around like a cartoon character.
When I think someone is going to be rude, and they are super-nice instead.
But what I’m dedicating my valentine to this year, is cute fictional boys. Because they’re cute, and—do I need other reasons than that?
Here’s to you, cute fictional boys!
You get away with far more than I would ever allow in a real relationship.
You’re wounded. Tortured.
There are scars. Or tattoos.
Your eyelashes are very long.
Your memory is practically elephantine, especially when it comes to your lady.
Your capacity to wait for love is astonishingly unlike any boy I’ve ever known.
And when you finally kiss someone, you KISS them. With feelings. Often in some way that is delightfully central to the overarching narrative.
