Hope and Love

I know, I know, I've been lackin' and slacken' on the blog. This is because my life is CRAAAAAZY right now. well....more crazy than usual. And I can never bring myself to sit down and tell you all of the Hope Haps. (happenings of Hope.)

But do I have a story for you!

This happened pre-Valentines' day. So let's all pretend that it's February 10th.

(cool time travel noises)

February 10th:

Pop Quiz: Hope was feeling

A. Sad
B. Discouraged
C. Forgotten
D. Rejected
E. Alone
F. All of the above

about valentine's day.

(the correct answer is F) because everyone and their dog has "that special someone."

 I know this because I watched 101 Dalmatians, where LITERALLY everyone and their DOG has a special someone....And my special someone was my meal card.

Anyways. I was meandering the Wilk with my special someone (meal card) and I decided to check out the downstairs, since I've never really Indiana-Jones-Level explored it.

Whilst walking around, something caught my eye mid-meander. It was a glorious, glorious bulletin board with subcategories such as BOYS, GIRLS, HOUSING, JOBS etc.  It's basically just a place for people to put 3X5 cards that read

"size 6 Wedding dress for sale! beaded bodice, temple appropriate, only worn once!" (duh) "please contact 555-968-2847"

Well. Being the me that I am, I thought that the single people of BYU would get a kick out of it if I........

advertised for a valentine.

I fished around in my backpack for a 3X5 card (which I miraculously found) and under the MEN category wrote:

Just in case you can't read it, it says:

"Looking for a Valentine! Please respond before February 14 2013 Looking for a fun, sweet, intelligent, funny male. Please call (my phone number)"

Oh yes.

Please note: that I did NOT include my name OR area code. In fact, I debated for a good 5 minutes whether or not I should put any number or all, but in the end, it seemed way funnier with the number.

Also note: I did not actually expect any responses. but later that night.....

ring ring.

ME: Hello?
MYSTERY PERSON: Hello, I found your card in the Wilk.
ME: Oh yeah?
MYSTERY PERSON: so have you found a Valentine yet?
ME:haha nope
MYSTERY PERSON: well would you like to go out on tuesday?

The rest is history, but here's a recap: He was super nice, and he gave me a box of chocolates since technically we were valentines. bwa ha ha ha ha ha!!!!!

So in sum: while it wasn't actually on valentine's day, he technically got a mail-order valentine.

my life is so fun! especially when it gets val-entwined with a good laugh.

(also, the offer still stands. Anyone? Anyone?)
