palm pixi

I have never been a gung-ho-lovey-dovey-give-me –flowers-and-teddy-bears Valentine’s Day fan. BUT for the first time in my life I have been counting down to Valentine’s Day since practically November. Every day for the past couple months I’ve opened my planner and flipped to see how many pages left until February 14th—10 pages…5….3…1…ah! Finally, February 14th came. I bet you are wondering why I have been anxiously awaiting the so-called holiday that I usually want nothing to do with, huh? Well, let me tell you: It’s because I had tickets to the Lady Antebellum concert. Not just tickets…AMAZING tickets! I was 10 feet from the stage. Ah!!!! It was the best. Night. Ever.

Let’s rewind a little bit to the beginning of the evening. When my date and I were walking in I handed over my purse to security for inspection. To my dismay, the security guard grumpily exclaimed that my camera was not allowed in the arena (gosh, I knew I should have headed to that nice grandpa looking security guard—he would have let me in for sure)…gasp! How dare they? It was very unfortunate. So my date took my camera back to the vehicle and I sadly went in to the arena empty handed. But wait! This story does not have a sad ending. Thank goodness for phones! My handy dandy little palm pixi of a cell phone in my front right pocket yet again pulled me out of a tight spot. Thanks to my trusty cell phone I was able to document a few moments from the evening.

What would we do without cell phones?

When walking to and from class I very often like to be one of those anti-social kids with headphones in and an Ipod turned up too loud to converse with anybody in passing. On other occasions, I choose to leave the headphones in my back pack and tune in to the conversations going on around me. And since its just in passing, I only hear snippets taken out of context that very often get me laughing out loud. Take this past week for example…I overheard a lot, but these were a few of my favorite lines:

“Alaska would be great because I’d be faaar away from her”

Roommate, professor? Guess I will never know!

“I was the best missionary EVER”

Hmmmm…this statement is a bit contradictory if you ask me

“St. Patrick’s day is on Saturday…that will be fun”

Why? Do people actually celebrate St. Patrick ’s Day?

“Cool Yo Yo skills, is that a Gengar?”

HA! If I’m not mistaken, a Gengar is a Pokemon.

“…So I heard Donald Trump is running for President!”

Clearly behind the times and not interested in politics.

Oh BYU, you are sooo entertaining. I wonder what bits and pieces of my conversations people are quoting...
