While Rosa and Ed somehow missed it, this week they catch up and say, “F*ck Valentine”! Not that they’re bitter or anything. Looks like there’s boy trouble in the ‘hood. Rosa shares a story of a good Valentine’s Day gone bad that recently happened to a close friend. This year, Ed decided to be the objective observer of V-Day rather than be a participant in the holiday. As such, he tells a couple of Valentine’s Day tales of two of his co-workers. What says I love you most? Apparently – according to one of Ed’s neighbors – it’s three foot tall Hello Kitty heart balloons.
