Yesterday, I thought it would be funny to give my girlfriend a potato for Valentine's Day.
Yes, a potato.
Let me explain.
What does a rose signify? Well, let's take a look at roses. They're very pretty, yes... but besides looking nice, do they have any purpose? Can they be eaten? Yes, but not for nourishment. Can they be used as a power source? Anything at all? No. They're useless. Secondly, they live no more than a couple of days, and that's if you put them in water.
So what does a rose say about a relationship? "Our relationship is based entirely upon looks, and won't last very long."
But a potato.
Potatoes may be ugly, but they're useful. You can cook and eat them. They can be cooked in hundreds of ways. You can even eat them raw! And they last forever! Even when they have little green things growing from them, you can just cut those off, and you're still okay to eat it! They can even be used as a makeshift battery! Potatoes are very useful, and last forever. Quite the opposite of roses, yes?
So shouldn't a potato be the greatest symbol of love?
I thought so.
(Don't worry, we're still together, she's not that shallow, but she was kind of unhappy. :p)
Worst love failure?
Yelling "But I love you!" to a girl while she runs away from your room with you naked in company of another naked girl.
And ending up getting slapped by girl #2 once she was done getting dressed in the bathroom.
And from this we can all learn a lesson: When you're cheating on your girl, tell your brother to NOT let the cheated upon girlfriend inside the house. My excuse, I was 17.
