there’s a moment in life of every spinster…
So Sad but prob true… I live with 2 cats already
The world’s first Valentine’s Day-themed film, George Albert Smith’s "The Old Maid’s Valentine" (1900), demonstrates that the gut-wrenching sadness and loneliness of the holiday are nothing new. In the one-minute film, Miss Pimple, what was once quaintly called a spinster, who lives alone with her cat, receives a letter on February 14th. She braces herself for romance, only to find that the valentine is a mocking card, bearing the greeting, “Just like mama!” Needless to say, her feelings are hurt.
But wait! Before you get really depressed, you should know that Laura Bayley, the gifted comic actress who plays Miss Pimple, was, in fact, the director’s wife. So, the moral of the story is twofold. First, don’t send mean fake valentines, because that’s just cruel. And more important, everybody loves somebody sometime.
