So he sings a February song

Just one week until Valentine's Day. I send cards to people I love, and Josh definitely counts in that category. One year ago today, he was doing the Today show not far from my office. It made me wonder: Could I actually deliver his in person this year? I would have to be at work during the show...but what if there was still a way?
So I got the card ready. I put on my lucky shirt (dark green Kenneth Cole blouse with a long narrow V-neck) and a nice pair of jeans, slipped a twenty in my glove in case I had to bribe someone into helping me, and took the subway to Rockefeller Center.
As I got off and walked towards the studio, I heard something. "Is that...!" It was! I couldn't see him, but I could hear him singing "February Song." I ran toward it and parked myself right outside the studio to listen to the end of it.
After it was over, I approached one of the security guards at the door and asked if he could help me by delivering the card. I opened it and shook it out to prove there were no harmful substances in there (as if there would be!), and he found someone who worked for NBC to deliver the card. I'll never know what came of that, but I still can't believe I pulled that off. I was so surprised at what happened and so happy to have heard him that I wanted to dance around the office.

I'm not having as happy a day today. I feel like I screwed up something at work, and I lost my dinner reservation for Valentine's Day. I was really looking forward to taking my fiance there (they serve this beer he loves and huge portions of delicious food), and we lost it to a private party. I'm trying to think that this happened for a reason - maybe the restaurant is going to burn down that night (heaven forbid!), maybe we'll get a different reservation at a better place - but it's not easy.
