I Lopovopoe Yopo
by Aasheeta P.
http://theromantic.com/

My fiance and I were in a long-distance relationship for five years,
and spent lots of money on phone bills and for trips.  So, we often
tried to be creative with presents, making them instead of getting
expensive things which we didn’t have money for anyway.

One year I made him an “I Love You” box.  I went online and found
translations for those words in hundreds of languages (
http://theromantic.com/trivia/iloveyou.htm ).  I saved these
onto a word processor file, and picked out the ones I liked best.

Some of these had special meaning: some Indian languages because I
am Indian.  Spanish and Italian because we met on a trip to those
countries, and some silly ones like pig latin and other made-up
languages.

I picked a special, beautiful font for each one, and printed them
out on fancy paper.  Then I bought some supplies at crafts store: a
box, tissue paper, and velvet fabric.  His favorite color is forest
green, so I bought the velvet and paper in these colors.  I lined
the box with the velvet and decorated the outside with the
translations and tissue paper, making it sort of a decoupage box.

I tried not to make it too “girly” since I wanted him to be able to
display it!  I filled the inside with slips of paper saying things I
loved about him.  I don’t know if I could call the box great art–it
is quite simple–but I loved working on it, and he still uses it.  I
just wanted him to have a fun reminder of my feelings for him, yet
something that was practical enough for him to use as well so he
could look at it everyday!

One of our favorite translations was “Op.”  I love you = I lopovopoe
yopo.  We still tell each other that when we’re in a silly mood!

~~~     Relationship Humor      ~~~

Men Are Like…

…  Blenders.  You need one, but you’re not quite
sure why.

… Chocolate Bars.  Sweet, smooth, and they usually
head right for your hips.

…  Coffee.  The best ones are rich, warm, and can keep you up all
night long.

…  Commercials.  You can’t believe a word they say.

…  Computers.  Hard to figure out and never have enough memory.

…  Coolers.  Load them with beer and you can take them anywhere.

…  Copiers.  You need them for reproduction, but that’s about it.

…  Curling Irons.  They’re always hot, and they’re always in your
hair.

…  Government Bonds. They take way too long to mature.

…  Horoscopes.  They always tell you what to do and are usually
wrong.

…  Lava Lamps.  Fun to look at, but not all that bright.

…  Mascara.  They usually run at the first sign of emotion.

…  Parking Spots.  The good ones are already taken and the ones
that are left are either handicapped or extremely small.

…  Popcorn.  They satisfy you, but only for a little while.

…  Weather.  Nothing can be done to change either one of them.
