Extremely Happy Valentine's Day to You!

Happy (very late) Valentine's Day. Even though it was two days ago, I have a rather funny story to tell.
There is a girls' club and a boys' club at Hickman Charter School. I find it hard to imagine that there could ever be anything romantic between the girls and the boys, partly for the reason that all the boys are really gross and annoying. (Okay, we're probably just as annoying, but you get my point.) So my friend Ursula made a Valentine and showed it to all the rest of us girls. It said "We don't hate you" on the outside (with a teddy bear holding a heart) and "...much" on the inside. After making sure none of us minded-- nobody did; we all found it hilarious-- we presented it to the Boys' Club from the Girls' Club.
With all the girls walking behind her, Ursula approached the boys at lunch and handed the card to Bryce.
He read aloud, "'We don't hate you.'"
This set all the boys laughing, for several seconds without cease.
"'We don't hate you'? Ah ha ha!" Rowan said, in a fit of laughter. "Yeah, thanks! We're so complimented."
"Open it up," Ursula said.
"'...Much'," Bryce read. "Much! Much? 'We don't hate you much'."
Everyone-- boys and girls-- laughed even harder this time, and the girls went back to our lunch spot. A few minutes later the boys returned the Valentine to Ursula.
"They crossed out 'don't'," she said. "So now it says, 'We hate you much.' Geez, they can't even make their own card, they just modified ours."
"It's not even grammatical," I said.
We laughed about the not-very-romantic Valentines.

I can read your mind

There's rosemary, that's for remembrance: pray, love, remember; and there is pansies, that's for thoughts.
Now let me predict your response!
1. If you don't know me, and know Hamlet REALLY well, you are thinking, Hey, I recognize that!
2. If you are named Evelyn Polonius, you are thinking, A document in madness!
3. If you are someone else in Homeschool Co-op, you are thinking, Why is Sasha still obsessed with that play?
4. If you are in Hickman, you are thinking, Oh. haha.
5. Otherwise you're thinking, What is she talking about??

Was I correct? please comment and tell me.

I took a small walk in Tilden Park and got a few photographs I'd like to share.
