Like many other lovers
across the globe, first-year
Woody Meyer desperately
needed a Valentine's Day
gift for his girlfriend. This
young lad decided to
devote an entire day to
., ,roaming the streets of Ann
Arbor in search of the
9 perfect gift.
-' Since every present
starts with a card, Meyer's
day began with a trip to
the card store (left). His
final choice was lovingly
sentimental, but still
retained a comical edge.
4 yInside the shop, Meyer
eyed a pile of chocolate
t - filled hearts and tested one
out (right). Finding the
cardboard too salty for his
tastes, he left with a card, but still no gift.
Meyer suddenly had a flashback from a past English class, and
remembered that women are supposed to dig poetry, so off he went
to the bookstore. After wasting a lot of time in the science fiction
section, the loverboy indulged himself with some Shakespeare (lower
right). But when he realized that his mate failed introductory
composition, the book lost its appeal. By now, Meyer was quite
annoyed, and seriously considered employing the overused flower
option (bottom). Although his time was running out, he caught his
second wind and drudged onward.
Just when things were looking bad and it seemed like he was out of
luck, a light went on in his head. Meyer hustled down to the local
lingerie shop with something red and frilly in mind, and he hit the
jackpot. Before him was the most beautiful piece of clothing he had
ever seen. He grabbed it and held it up while yelling, "Wow, even if
she doesn't like it I'll take it!"
