Normally, Mondays and me do not agree.
Luckily, I am on holidays from school for a week, and that sort of makes everything better.
In this case, I’m almost glad to see a Monday, because it means that last week is over. Last week was stressful for me, to say the least; I had two papers to finish, a midterm grade to dispute, and limited sleep to do it on. As a crowning point of the less-than-lovely week, Valentine’s Day was on Friday. Poor Kyle was really sweet. He got me this:
Poor Kyle! A white neon sign that reads “nothing?” Awww…you shouldn’t have. Image from here.
The sad thing is, my “nothing” didn’t even come with a white neon sign. It really was just nothing.
Anyway, it doesn’t really matter. Whenever Poor Kyle drops the ball on days that he really should hang on to it, he always makes up for it later, with something. Something to replace the nothing. Today, for example, I get sushi. I like sushi. PK, not so much. The sushi is going to be part of my new “something.” Another bit of my Valentine’s-Day-Making-Up-For-The-Nothing is a trip to Oregon this week, in which PK has actually agreed to taking a few extra days for sightseeing. In the 12 months we’ve been making trips to Oregon, he has never once agreed to take a few extra days for sightseeing. This is a really big “something.”
Since I haven’t gone on one of these Oregon road trips with PK in quite a while, I’m really looking forward to it.
I always find a way to make something out of nothing. Poor, poor Poor Kyle.
What did you get for V-day? Or are you like me, and still weaseling something out of nothing? It’s a sad plight, truly, but someone’s gotta do it…
