Dear Mr. and Miss Pricklyhearts
Love is in the air, and what better way to celebrate Valentine’s Day than to receive romantic advice from our favorite prickly pals? Resident platonic porcupines Mr. Prickles and Miss Pointypants are ready to answer your questions!
Do you have any relationship advice for a badger (night animal) and squirrel (morning animal)? Our timing is always off and we never see each other.
Relationships are all about compromise. Perhaps split the difference in your schedules, and meet for a noontime woodland stroll or a midnight swim in the lake?
What’s your idea of a perfect date? How will you two be celebrating Valentine’s Day this year?
Any time we can spend together is perfect, as far as we’re concerned — whether we’re sticking around at home or out watching the moon rise. This Valentine’s Day, we’ll snuggle up together (carefully) and enjoy our favorite meal: twigs, bark, clover, and cabbage.
I don’t have a special someone. What do I do on Valentine’s Day?
Whatever you do, don’t spend the day pointedly glaring at the world; trust us, it gets boring fast. Get out there and frolic with your friends! As we always say, it’s much nicer being alone with someone else.
How do porcupines show their love to one another?
We show our love by doing whatever we can to make each other feel less lonely. This usually involves lots of hugging, one of our favorite pastimes. Also, we like to send each other Prickly Love Notes. Feel free to download our favorites and email or snail mail them to your loved ones.
What do I get for Valentine’s Day for someone who has everything?
That’s easy. Nothing points the way to romance like a book, especially our own quill-fated love story!
Happy Valentine’s Day, everyone! Let’s get out there and spread some LOVE!
