Will you be mine?

I think this is the first time in many years the kids did not exchange Valentines, not a problem for me. That's not to say that Japan doesn't celebrate the day, Valentines were everywhere. It's just done a little differently. Here in Japan the rule is that only girls/women give chocolate to the boys/men. There is something called Giri chocolate typically given to men who are not love interests. So I was told that the admin assistants at work will give this gift of chocolate to their boss. Then the return is expected one month later on March 14th, called White Day. The men give a gift of white chocolate to the women. Now, either Jack's 'person' doesn't feel obligated to him or he ate all the chocolate before he came home because I didn't see any?!?! At least Connor brought home some very sweet heart origami from preschool.
