1001 Black Men #818


I spotted this gentleman in the card shop next door to Gaylord’s on Piedmont Ave. It was Valentine’s Day, and he and I were shopping for the same reason. Some might call it procrastination, but for people like him and me, it’s not that we don’t care enough about our love ones to buy gifts and cards ahead of time. Rather, it’s that we care too much. When you want to get just the right thing for that special person, sometimes it’s hard to even know where to start…until Valentine’s Day finally rolls around, and you have no choice but to decide on that perfect card and gift. To the untrained eye, it looks like waiting around until the last minute, but it’s really an example of what loving someone too much can look like.
