V-Day 2009

>> Saturday, February 14, 2009

Valentines Day is a complicated day for many. Whether it’s the reality of being single or the frustrations of looking for that perfect present, it’s not easy. But that’s beside the point right now. Half of this writing team is spending valentines with a significant other for the very first time. The other half thought he would tell the tale of his friend’s epic journey. In the interest of keeping their identities anonymous we’ll name the guy Joe and the girl Mary.

I’ve know both Joe and Mary for many years now even before they were dating. Joe is a standup guy and has been a loyal wingman. Mary is a smart and witty girl that’s just right for Joe. The three of us all went to high school together and share many memories.

Fast forward to the present, Joe and I go to the same college and are still good friends to this day. Mary goes to school in a far off land up in the wilderness of California. Every so often brave Joe travels up to see his beloved Mary. This is how our conversations usually go:

Joe: I hate bus stations
Me: Did you make it up there yet?
Joe: Dude I am not rolling in until 11 (pm). SAVE ME!
Me: Say you have a bomb
Joe: How will that get me there any faster?!?
Me: Never know until you try
Joe: Guess what? When we take a trip together I’ll let you do that and we’ll see what happens
Me: Sissy
Joe: Idiot

Yep, my good friend travels long and hard for his girl. If you two are reading this, Happy Valentine’s Day, almost a full year now huh? Mary- I hope you know how lucky you are to have that boy. Joe- Enjoy the ride back down sucker! Nevertheless, Valentine’s Day isn’t just for couples so if you’re single enjoy it with friends or family. But if you’ve got a special girl or guy in your life, let them know you care EVERYDAY and not just today. Cheers.
