Campus Pizzas Rushing To Find Valentine’s Day Presents For Sophomore Girlfriends
CLEVELAND CIRCLE — Valentine’s Day has once again snuck up on Boston College boyfriends. The last-minute dash for the perfect gift has flooded the aisles of CVS and the Hillside bookstore with freshmen, seniors, and pizzas.
Alyssa Ashbury (LSEHD ’22) told the Classic she usually spends the holiday alone or with friends, but this year she’s found a special someone to spend it with.
“Pizza is literally, like, my boyfriend,” Ashbury said. “Oh my god, I’m gonna put that on my story.”
The story, a flash picture of a greasy personal pizza from Addie’s, came as a surprise to her supposed beau.
“I mean, Alyssa and I have been hanging out a lot, but mostly just in Lower or sometimes in her common room,” the frazzled cheese pizza said in the candy aisle of CVS. “Then all of a sudden, she starts talking about how pizza is her boyfriend and now I feel like I have to get her something, right?”
The pizza puzzled over a dizzying array of pink-and-red candies before selecting a box of Russell Stover chocolates.
“Should I get her a bear or something?” the pizza asked. “I’ve never had to do this before! I didn’t ask to be her boyfriend!”
At press time, a Screamin’ Eagle flatbread was seen venturing down to the McElroy bookstore from CoRo Cafe in search of an eleventh-hour present for a very special Roncalli resident.
