Valentine’s Day; I remember back in GIS you could pay a certain amount, and they’d send chocolates and/or flowers to whoever you wanted in school. I think this was one chump activity I never partook in.
George had this crush on the new girl in school and he had sent her chocolates, hoping to score some brownie points with her. His kind and generous gesture wasn’t appreciated as the chocolates were sent back. Ouch. He ended up eating them himself, eating his misery as he put it.
He also tried calling her, to which she answered, yelled at him along the lines of “I’m not interested in you!” before proceeding to hang up. Double ouch.
A couple of years later after high school we actually bumped into her at the food court, George and her chatted amicably, I’d like to think that she probably thought that it wasn’t one of her proudest moments either, but hey we were all young once.
I realize this would have made more sense to post on Valentine’s Day but I forgot I had this little gem saved, now’s a good time as any I suppose.
