So Valentine’s Day is upon us, but I already did a “love” theme back in October for my sister in law and brother in law’s wedding.  And not because I support this purely commercial holiday  but because February 14 will mark nine years since Mr. Glib and I laid eyes upon each other in the basement of a St. Louis karaoke bar, this quiz is devoted to matters of the “heart.”

Whether they be broken, full of joy, or beating furiously, hearts metaphorically drive our sense of love for one another.  So whether that’s a spouse, a best friend, or a family member, spend some time with a loved one this weekend.

Side note: Happy Lincoln’s birthday, tomorrow (what can I say, I went to elementary school in Illinois).
