At the store this evening, I learned something new:
I totally don’t get all these new super-specific greeting card themes.
They all seem like such rare circumstances to me.
Friendship Romantic Cheer Get Well cards:
For when you’ve got a sick friend you kinda want to ask out, but think they’ll need further cheering up if you try.
Milestone Sweetheart Teen cards:
For when your teenager just took up distance running with their boyfriend/girlfriend, which obviously warrants a greeting card.
Cheer Get Well Miss You Romantic cards:
For when things didn’t go so well in the relationship, and you need to imply you miss them while under the pretense of just cheering them up.
Wife Grandmother Niece Cousin Aunt and Wife/Husband Grandparents Niece/Nephew Aunt/Uncle Cousin cards:
For when you have an event and need to send cards to every single family member possible, and want to ensure no one feels left out.
Wedding Baby Anniversary Thank You Sympathy cards:
For when someone is celebrating the anniversary of them marrying a hyperintelligent baby, and you need to appreciatively congratulate them while simultaneously expressing your condolences that said marriage happened in the first place.
I mean, I’m all for being specific, but it feels like that situation wouldn’t come up that often.
