[do] How to Write a Love Letter

Psst… Hey you, mister, I have a secret for you. What if I told you that for 50 cents a week, you could make your woman feel like the queen of Sheba? For four bits, your wife will parade through her office or PTO meeting and make the girls who got a dozen roses and a formulaic greeting card feel like schlubs. Here’s the secret….
