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)
Pop Quiz: Hope was feeling
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)"
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.....
MYSTERY PERSON: Hello, I found your card in the Wilk.
ME: Oh yeah?
MYSTERY PERSON: so have you found a Valentine yet?
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?)
