Today is Valentine’s Day, otherwise known to most as a #greetingcardholiday. As I walked out of CVS this morning, I laughed at the people who were fighting for position in the greeting card aisle. Valentine’s Day is about showing love for someone in your life, not elbowing strangers while cursing the loved ones you are asking to “Be Mine”.
Yup, that’s right, my true identity is #FittedSheetMan #nocape
At the risk of folding everyone’s sheets in Boston for the past 20 years, I had chosen to hide my coveted skill to fold a fitted sheet perfectly square, until now. Last Thursday, local affiliate, WCVB Boston aired my #superpower on their award-winning program, Chronicle.
Now that I have been found out, I must come clean and use this superpower for ‘Love’, not just ‘Good’. Even with host @ShaynaSeymour getting my name wrong (she was likely just trying to protect my true identity ;-)), my social feeds and email have blown up with family, friends and even strangers sending me thank you notes and pictures of their newly folded fitted sheets.
So, if you are looking for a unique and original way to sweep your loved one off their feet, why not take a look at this clip from the show and see if you can do what once may have seemed to be harder than saying “I love you”.
Cards are nice. Flowers die. Chocolates….well, those are always perfect. However, folding the fitted sheets and keeping order in the linen closet can not only save marriages, but even this Valentines Day!!! 💖
