It started in middle school. It was a teacher’s fault actually, a responsible adult, who first introduced me to it. Out of the blue.
I was going through the drawer in the bedside table the other day and stumbled across a thin stack of cut-out construction paper cards held together by two staples. The front piece -- a canary yellow construction paper square -- had a purple and pink flower with an aqua stem surrounded by purple hearts drawn on it in crayon, with "I (Heart) You Mommy" written underneath.
