Men pain complete the welcome card racks, hoping that they can settle on a card that is not too funny, not too mushy. And the gift: how will she read it? If I buy her chocolates will she weighing I poverty her to get fat? If I don't buy her chocolates will she reckon I believe she is fat? Is the endowment too extravagant? Is it too impersonal? Are roses too predictable?
