Here is the tail end of the conversation that I had with Lance about my Valentine's Day:
Lance: So, now [by not following everyone's expectations] you basically flipped over the chess game, pieces everywhere, and gave everyone the finger.
So I'm learning. A little piece of advice: playing life by the rules all the time sucks, and sometimes you need to flip the board over and start over again. Or knock all the Lincoln logs down and start re-building the cabin. Or blow up a building... No, really, I'm not that bitter.
