Why I'm in love

Sunday, October 12, 2008

The other day I was reading xkcd and came across this fabulous comic.

It really spoke to me, since I think one of the greatest parts of a relationship happens when one partner recognizes and indulges a socially unpopular part of the other. It might be embracing something geeky like in this comic, or providing a hidden pleasure like Peeps, but it’s touching when it happens. Me – I like graphs.

For my anniversary with Sarah, one thing I got her was a pack of “fruit”-flavored Mentos, which we always have enjoyed on our vacations (consumption-based enjoyment, not science experiment enjoyment). The next day she sent me this graph of the contents of the Mentos pack.

I'm in love.

i feel sorry for orange.

Yeah, orange got pretty seriously under-represented. I was actually more distressed at the percentage of yellow, which neither of us like at all.
