wishing you potatoes

February 14, 2010

"well, there's a lot of reasons. i mean, roses only last like a couple weeks and that's if you leave them in water, and they really only exist to be pretty. so that's like saying "my love for you is transitory and based solely on your appearance". but a potato! potatoes last forever. in fact, not only will they not rot, they actually grow stuff even if you just leave them in the sack! that part alone makes it a good symbol...but there's more! there are so many ways to enjoy a potato! you can even make a battery with it! and that's like saying "i have many ways in which I show my love for you" and potatos may be ugly, but they're still awesome so that's like saying "it doesn't matter at all what you look like, I'll still love you"

and so for the past 4 years i've given david potatoes for valentine's day.
this year's will just have to be postponed until we meet in paris.

happy valentine's day ♥

especially to you, dear boyfriend, 6142 miles away.
