Valentine's day


"Hey Snakehead."

"Hey Laura what's up?"



"Oh I thought you said 'one second'."

"Oh no I didn't. So what's up, Laura?"

"Nothing. I was just returning your call. Do you need help with homework?"

"I did, but I don't anymore. I gave up."

"Oh you did?" laughs.

"Yeah. It's completely retarded. It's all fucking messy algebra anyway."

"Yeah you're right. I spent hours and hours working on that problem and I didn't get anywhere."

"Yeah, oh well. Forget about it."

"So what are you doing tomorrow?"

"Umm.... tomorrow? I'll be doing a lap report."

"What?! You're not serious."

"Yes I am. Why?"

"You gotta do something tomorrow."

"Yeah, I'm doing my lab report."

"But you gotta go out, it's Valentine's day. You have to go on a date."

"I don't have any plans for tomorrow. And where am I gonna find a date all of a sudden?"

"Well you have to go out. Promise me you'll think about it."

"All right. I promise."

"Ok Snakehead, I'll see you tomorrow."

"See you. Bye."


Well, if cupid is out there and pointing arrow in my general direction, please tell him that I live in Berkeley, right next to Telegraph Road. If he doesn't know where that is, ask him to give me a call at G1J-HAK-D0M0.

If he's not, then to all the happy couples out there: treasure your partner. Put him or her on a pedestal for just one day, and cherish the moment.

Also, to all the unhappy couples out there: dump him/her. You're stronger than you think. You're more beautiful than you think. You're thinner than you think. And most importantly, your life is more complete than you think.
