Anatomical Hearts Versus Pop Culture Hearts

Friday, January 25, 2013

By Meghann Ackerman

It started shortly after Christmas—the pink and red boxes of chocolate popping up on store shelves, the emails for deals on romantic getaways, and the Groupons for couples massages. Yes, Valentine’s Day was less than two months away and it was time to buy hearts!

But I’m the type of girl who uses Halloween decorations for year-round decor, so long before I was hanging out in cardiology waiting rooms studying medical illustrations, I preferred the anatomical heart to the pop culture heart. It’s not all macabre, though. Giving your sweetie a card with an anatomical heart on it opens the possibility for cheesy cardiac lines, like...

“I’m pumped you’re my Valentine.”

“Would you be my Valventine?”

“You make my heart skip a beat—in the good way.”

I don’t want to have all the fun with this. What’s your best cardiac pick-up line?
