I received candy conversation hearts from my mom for Valentine’s Day. I haven’t had these things in a couple years, so I was excited. I decided to share them with my coworkers. As I poured some into my little container, I noticed a few bizarre things.
1. They now use text lingo. I remember this starting to happen last time I had them. For example: “only 4 u” and “c u 2nite.”
2. Some of them are negative. Since when was “Nice Try” romantic?
3. About 3/4 of them say “What Next.” You tell me what next! The end of romantic candy, that’s what!
4. They really don’t taste as good as I thought they did.
As you can tell, I was a little disappointed. On the bright side, they gave me something to blog about! Also, as I was writing this, I reached over for one and it said “cup cake.” Well! Conversation hearts, you have won your way back into my life again with that one little candy. You got lucky this time, but in the future, please be more clever with your little candy conversations.
Writer’s Update: I just found one that says U+ME BABE.
