The day I didn't know it was

I was walking back from lunch today when a colleague said something about a sign being cute. I didn't see the sign until she pointed out the, 8 foot by 6 foot, happy Valentines chalk sign on the wall (apparently somebody hearts somebody else). I was like, "Oh yeah, isn't it Valentines tomorrow?"
"No, it's today", came the reply and the laughter.

Just a small reason why Ryan didn't get any cards this year. Just a small one, but one of many.

"I was like"? "I WAS LIKE"?

Have you gone native?

Distressingly so. I find that if you don't alter the way in which you talk to them, they don't undestand.

Either that or maybe it was subliminal ironic usage?

But probably I'm just getting stoopid.
