  1. Happy Valentine’s Day to you!

    Thank you for the Valentine’s present. It’s excellent all through. The punchline is very satisfactory: how we bring 1960’s expectations to this future society – and, even more than the job, Danielle being tall and clumsy is automatically considered male.

    The station background, with the socks smell and the work talk, looks solid. Gripping picture and opening.
