The Power To Express-o

, , , , | Romantic | March 7, 2012

(My boyfriend has just sent me a text message. I hate coffee, but my boyfriend adores it.)

Boyfriend: “I wrote you a poem! It’s about coffee!”

How I love my coffee,
How it fills me with life.
How it soothes my heart,
How it calms my soul.
How it awakens my senses,
And makes me feel warm.
Oh, [My Name],
My coffee is you.

Me: “Aww, thanks. But I am not coffee.”

Boyfriend: “But I made it sound so good!”

Teenage Girl: “No, no, no! Vampires drink ANIMAL blood! And why aren’t you sparkling?!”

Me: “Your neck… It’s so… inviting—”

Teenage Girl: “This is WRONG! You aren’t real vampires!” *stomps away*

Me: “Me and you both, buddy. But you’re in luck, as it just so happens our bags are tan and blue. Will that be okay?”
