The pre-valentine effect

So Valentine’s Day is approaching and some people’s character has totally changed. Even your own brother or best friend won’t trust you as well as he did before. The eyes of boys on campus (well, at least the ones with girlfriends) are wide open; some even bought magnifying glasses for spectacles, just to be sure they don’t miss anything.

During this time, you don’t want to greet or hug anyone’s girlfriend or else you will find a gang of boys outside your place with a warning letter. Okay, the warning letter has more grammatical errors than actual content but when it comes to action, the punches won’t have any errors. Most guys have marked their territory for this period as they don’t want to be idle on that day because they got a breakup call the morning before.

In fact, some have even bought veils for their girlfriends for the next one week and only their eyes can be seen. Some phones have been confiscated for security purposes.The ones whose boyfriends try to be liberal still watch them closely - call her number at your own risk.

Then there are those who simply admire girls from a distance, not actually dating them, and expect you to understand that the girls are still off limits.If they see you even attempt to make your way to her, they will start a monthly gym programme just for you.

Any attempt to wear red and black around this time, you will be eyed for the better part of the day with everyone making sure you don’t take your valentine mood anywhere near their dates.

During this time, don’t even think about borrowing money from anyone. People fast the whole week just to save up for the long awaited day. It’s around this same time that you can buy gadgets and TVs from people at the best price. It’s another January of sorts just that this time, it doesn’t last long.

As the campus inspector also prepares for Valentine’s Day, stay tuned for what will happen on D-Day itself.
