Frankly speaking, I’m not very big on Valentine’s day. I feel that it’s become too.. forceful. I mean, sure, it’s a day to express your “lourve” and all; but why do you need to constrict it to just one day? Why only 14th of Feb to celebrate love? It has become more of a compulsion than a joy. Couples know that they must give each other red roses, and boxes of chocolates or mushy cards or jewellery to prove that they love each other. I was that girl once :\
But they have commercialized it so much and have overhyped it to the extent that it does not excite me anymore. It’s overrated. So this year, I just thought of it as just another day and did not give it much thought. I should have.
Yesterday I received one of the best surprises I’ve received in a lifetime. I was out when my bro texted me “You have a courier”. The whole time while coming back I was dying with excitement. I’d guessed who it was from. Yep, you guessed it too :) Cheeeeeeeeeee! There I saw it. A faded light blue envelope with my name and address neatly sprawled across it in block letters.
The contents rendered me speechless. One, I was not expecting him to make anything for me. Make as in, get paper, print pictures, cut them, stick them on the paper, and write messages with a blue sketch pen. Two, he made a scrapbook where he pasted a lot of his pictures and put it creatively into a story form and tied it all up with a red ribbon. It was amazing. I don’t remember anyone ever taking so much of trouble to make me anything. It blew my socks off.
Oh!! He also got me Spongebob squarepants erasers! I LOVE Spongebob! And he also wrote a little letter where he mentioned that a 6 year old could have done a better job. Awwww! I’ve been jumping around like a pony on crack all day!
I gave a kickass presentation today, I talked to one of my teachers openly and candidly about something which was eating me for days, and I didn’t even think much about a nightmare that I had last night. I feel awesome. My fingers feel so alive, clickity clacking away on this keyboard. I love the sound that it’s making. I love that I'm on a passionate banana-eating spree and at least assuming that I should have gained a couple of kilos. I love the way I tied my pony today. Hair back with two pins to hold them together. I think I’m looking very cute. And I went into sporadic, uncontainable paroxysms of laughter over a silly thing which now does not sound funny at all. Such are the ramifications of an awesome Valentine’s day unexpected surprise.
I’m so glad I’m a human being and I got to feel this emotion. It’s priceless!
Gotta love Valentine’s day now, eh?
Happy Valentine’s day people! Spread the louuuuuuurrve! :D
