Girl meets Boy. They fall into that tempestuous storm called lust.
They get all ooey gooey chocolate chip cookie about one another.
The calendar flips a couple months.
The feelings gain the freshman 15.
And lust metamorphosizes into that dread four letter word. L.O.V.E.
It has long plagued humans how to express this sentiment. For one, when does a person utter these words of biblical proportion? Does the other person feel the same way? Will this scare his or her better half off? Oh the torture!
And then Ray J and Bobby Brackins released the song “143” to remind us of the days of yore, when pagers were the best expressed amore. 143 refers to the numbers of letters in each word it abbreviates.
So this brings me to an idea. If you are unsure of how “I wuv you” will be received, go ahead and substitute 143. Then it is kind of jokey. And laughter is the cure all for awk situations.
So try the 143, before you end up this little monkey.
