Valentines Day: The Things We Do

My dear readers,
Unlike everyone else, today I would like to present to you the most celebrated day in an entirely different context.
Love, when sprinkled with some humor is the best treat.
Tell you what… these quotes are real life incidents… a life that I am a part of, that is. Some of these incidents are the you-have-to-be-there moments, nevertheless, they are bound to bring a smile on your face.

“I don't understand why Cupid was chosen to represent Valentine's Day. When I think about romance, the last thing on my mind is a short, chubby toddler coming at me with a weapon.”
-Chris, on analyzing Valentine’s Day

Alyson: What are you guys doing for your residents at Valentines?
Rob: I suppose I am going to give them some candy with heart-shaped cards
Adhira: and condoms!
They will need it more than they'd need the candy... :-)
-Worries of a resident assistant

Raaji: Honey, I know you love my sweet, sweet voice but you would have to be satisfied with my fingers now
-Hanging up the phone and getting back to chatting.

Brian M.: You're gay.
Chris: Make me!
Joe: What do you say to that?! It's flawless!
-Normal conversations

Raaji: I have a big news for you!
Nishan:(very excited) You broke up? YES!
Raaji: No (serious face)
Nishan: Oh! (sad face)
-abrupt changes

Raaji: Megs, can I kick your boyfriend?
Megs: oh, please go for it.
Raaji: thanks.
-Normal conversations in all seriousness :-)

“Hey I have standards too when it comes to dating girls. I would like girls from tan to brown”
-Nishan, on dating standards

"Imagine all the worst parts of the Bible that you have ever heard, multiply these by ten, and then pretend it's real."
-Justin, on the wrath of his girlfriend

Raajii: So, how is your lady?
Nishan: I don’t know, she likes me but we are still just friends.
Raajii (seriously): Don’t worry, its just a matter of time.
(I don’t know why he just cracked up and after laughing for a good 5 min...)
Nishan: I love your confidence. Bless you!

Sarah: Starlight, star bright, first star I see tonight...
Jess: You can stop right there. It's not going to happen.
Sarah: Why not?
Jess: Because that's Saturn.
Sarah: DAMNIT!
-During a walk, a night before Valentines

Raajii (While eating ice-cream at 2am and rambling): I am not going to call. I am sure he can make a lousy phone call on one lousy day. Like come on now, how hard is it to remember that!
(making a face) Hey, there is no other flavor of ice-cream in this thing. He said there would be more flavors!
Faz (listening patiently): Ahh... the things that bother Raajii....

"Come for the coffee.... stay for the ladies...."
-on the board in our 7th street Cafe :-)
