Did it hurt….? When You Were Shot with Cupid’s Arrow?


Kaylee Coquyt, Journalist

Happy Thursday! Unlike many of our previous Thursdays, the wind, snow, and below freezing temperatures aren’t the only threat. No no, this Thursday we face Cupid and his bow n’ arrow!


While Cupid runs about shooting arrows all willy nilly, and lovebugs bite unsuspecting bystanders, not everyone will experience the overwhelming stress and anxiety-inducing feeling of love.


For all our single ladies and gents looking to get bitten by the lovebug today, a few small things to remember:

  1. Conversation hearts aren’t happening this year. So, while this may be a hard concept to grasp, you might have to use real-life words to start a conversation! Crazy, I know.
  2. If it’s not love at first sight, walk by again. *wink* (don’t be creepy, please)
  3. If for some reason those real-life words don’t find their way to the ears of your one true love Snapchat will most definitely have a themed filter for you to send to that special someone. (example below)

This Valentine’s Day Cupid got me early. I can proudly say I am in a committed relationship with Ben and Jerry with Netflix on the side ;).


However, unlike me, some of you may be singles looking for some good entertainment tonight! Lucky for you, on this fateful valentines night, there is a prairie band concert @ 7 tonight in the concert hall!


When I was a fellow single lady, before Ben and Jerry, I discovered Valentine’s day to be dangerous.


Unless you are a normal human and have depth perception good enough to understand a situation, today might be your day to avoid the hallways. It happens to the best of us… when you step between that couple about to hug and get involved in a moment of PDA that you weren’t invited to. So please, use precaution as you walk through the halls.


Be safe out there kiddos.


Now, as this day came around I did some deep diving. And found, straight from the source of, you guessed it, my Instagram poll, the majority of people don’t really care for valentines day. Naturally, we can’t leave the haters to fend for themselves.


Here are a few quotes from my mom (she’s an icon):


“Steve Doser called this morning and canceled Valentine’s day!” Mrs. Coquyt proceeded to laugh hysterically.


“Flowers die!… Why don’t you waste your money on something else! They jack up those rose prices… ridiculous!”


As it is a day dedicated to romance and love I wish all you happy couples a day filled with PDA and smiles! To finish this off, below I have compiled a plethora of pick up lines that are 100% guaranteed to work! Happy Thursday! 😉


Pick up lines 100% guaranteed to let the love bug loose!


You’re my Big Time Crush!


Are you tired? Because you’ve been running through my mind all day.


Ouch! I scraped my knee falling for you.


If you were a chicken you’d be impeccable!


Feel this shirt, ya know what it’s made of? boy/girlfriend material.


Do you believe in love at first sight? Or should I walk by again?


Excuse me, you dropped this… my jaw!


Roses are red, my name is Dave, this poem makes no sense, Microwave. (This just made me giggle)


As it is late while I write this: roses are red, I’m going to bed.
