The mystery of Mr W's gift will be revealed to you at last!
It can fit in my pocket or in my hand. It's metallic and white. It has nifty little touch sensitive controls. It's the perfect heft and gives me great pleasure to use. And it's all mine, mine, mine.
Mr W totally rocks. He got me an iPod. So impractical! So pricey! So fabulous! I'm a bit verklempt right now, I need a moment...
I don't know how he pulled it off without a human sacrifice to the budget gods, but he did. And I am so surprised, tickled, glad...WOW. I've never, ever owned anything this expensive (the family vehicles don't count) that is just mine and only mine. Something that isn't me putting everyone else first, or lecturing him on the extravagance/impracticality/oh, come on, I-really-don't-need-it --ness. I even remembered later that I'd mentioned I'd wanted one a few times, and the last time I said "I really want one of those things, but ..." I should have known that the gleam in his eye from then on out was for a reason.
The fly in the ointment is that I'll need to upgrade our computer to Windows 2000 or XP to use it, but for now, I squatted my sister-in-law's computer so I could at least touch the greatness...and it is great, let me tell you. Me likey! I loaded it with a bunch of songs and a couple of CD's worth of music. It was so easy to use, especially for me, the pseudo-techie girl.
He also, sweetie that he is, bought me my 'lippy'...he'd asked for a list of stocking stuffer kind of stuff, so I looked up some colors of lippy, wrote down about four (so he could have options in case they were out of stock at the makeup counter); wrote down some BBW stuff, etc. So he, this is adorable, takes the list to the makeup counter, and instead of picking like one or two colors, he bought all the ones I wrote down. I don't think a porn star could have gone through that much lippy in year...so I did return some of them. Besides, you know, you need to try these things out sometimes to realize that some colors are just not you (haha, raspberry jam, what was I thinking?) But he did well, just the same. I was feeling the love...and ahem, he felt the love too when I finally got to thank him properly. ;)
I, on the other hand, don't think I did so well by him. He is not dazzled by the greatness of my cologne purchase, but he hasn't smelled it yet either...so I'm hoping he sees the light soon because I have no idea where my receipt for that is!!! Oh well. Guess I'll be back to sniffing random strangers, stray Dads, and coworkers again, lol. He did like his movies though, I mean, who can not smile at the cinematic brilliance of 'Blazing Saddles'? The suaveness of the Duke and the beauty of the lovely Maureen O'Hara in 'The Quiet Man'? No, he liked that just fine.
Now, if he'd just quit complaining about how sticky this beautiful lip gloss is....and give us a kiss...
Did I already say WOW?
Of course, I think that this is a ploy on his part to have complete silence from me while we're on the road...but that's ok, I'm totally entertained!
