a conversation i had on valentine's day
chosha: Doing anything special for Valentine's Day?
cute IT guy: [not answering the question but instead stepping onto his soapbox] Ugh, I'm not spending $50 on flowers just because it's Valentine's Day.
chosha: [shrug] Oo-kay.
cITg: I bought my girlfriend strawberry milk for Valentine's Day.
chosha: Strawberry milk? [Thinking: what, first thing you happened to spot at the gas station?]
cITg: She really likes strawberry milk, so I got her a 3 litre container of milk and a tin of Strawberry Quik.
chosha: [who appreciates creativity over cost] Actually, that's really sweet...
