Do you feel that, baby? Spring is in the air.
What does that mean? Love, baby, love.
What Is Love?
There are as many different flavors of love as there are flowers in the fields.
How Do You Know When You’ve Been Struck by Love?
Join us at a flower field tea party with four lovers of all things love: Food Truck Guy; Hank the Hedgehog; A. A. Milne (via Winnie the Pooh); and, Sid Vicious. Over crumpets with cream and honey we discover that love blooms in similar fashions across this rich and varied tapestry. How so, you ask?
You Think of Them
Food Truck Guy: They’re where my mind wanders.
Hank the Hedgehog: I try not to urinate on their blanket. Or, at least, their corner of the blanket.
Winnie the Pooh: Even if we’re apart, I’ll always be with them.
Sid Vicious: Yeah. What the hedgehog said.
You Prioritize Their Well-Being
Food Truck Guy: I learn recipes for their food allergies/preferences/ethics.
Hank the Hedgehog: I show them where the fire extinguisher is.
Winnie the Pooh: I bring them tea and honey until they feel like themselves again.
Sid Vicious: I try to find their pulse.
Their Happiness Is Your Happiness
Food Truck Guy: When I’m out and see something they mentioned, or that I think they’d like, I pick it up.
Hank the Hedgehog: When they hiss or raise their quills I hit the bricks. Or say ‘sorry babe’. Whatever works, man.
Winnie the Pooh: A little consideration, a little thought for them, makes all the difference.
Sid Vicious: I don’t mind when they punch me in the face. The blood makes me feel better too.
You Want the Best for Them
Food Truck Guy: If they’re working toward a dream, I do what I can to help.
Hank the Hedgehog: If they want to leave, I help them get their stuff.
Winnie the Pooh: I remind them to pay attention to where they’re going because without meaning they might get nowhere.
Sid Vicious: I remember their safeword. Almost. That one time.
When Is the Moment You Know It’s Love?
Food Truck Guy: There’s nowhere I’d rather be.
Hank the Hedgehog: I feel something, man. I don’t know what it is but I feel something. It’s like indigestion.
Winnie the Pooh: If they live to be 100, I hope I live to be 100 minus 1 day, so I never have to live without them.
Sid Vicious: If I need cash, I try not to hawk their jewellery.
I no doubt deserved my enemies, but I don’t believe I deserved my friends.
