Well friends, it’s time for another edition of Limited Too Tuesdays, a post in which I look back through my old diaries to see what middle school me was up to.
Appropriately enough, today’s selected entries are all about Valentines Day. I, like most bitter young girls who were never lucky enough to have a boyfriend, had a roller coaster relationship with this holiday. I loved it in elementary school school, hated it in middle school, ignored it in high school, and drank too much on it in college.

I almost stumped you with those mysterious “cookie grams” didn’t I? Glad I could clear that up for you. I forgot extra money on all of the important days in elementary i.e. bake sales, book fairs, penny wars, and cookie gram days. Those were the critical four and like clockwork I forgot my quarters every damn year and it killed me.

I should just feel lucky my parents were kind enough to give me something on Valentines Day. Enough with the “boo whos,” loser. And I’m still confused by the frilly hearts doodled on top of the page, I was never a heart doodling kind of girl. I just wasn’t ready to see that is all (mentally ready.)
And many of you have noted my continual use of the word “pry.” It’s true, that was my favorite word back in the day. It’s
short white trash for “probably.” I actually used it up until college but then one of my professors circled it on a paper and wrote “I have no idea what this means” beside it. I knew it was pry time to retire pry at that moment, at least pry for a few years or so.
Happy Valentines Day week, Bon and I are going to keep spreading the love and on Thursday we’re hosting a link-up called “Why We Work.” Join the fun and tell us why you and your significant other work. Or you and your bestfriend, or you and your mom, really about whomever or whatever is special to you! Because I’ve already written about Chris, this time around I’m probably writing about either Harlow or Cool Ranch Doritos. It’s still up in the air.
