This is so not the post that i planned to do for Valentine’s Day. In fact, i actually had this cutesy cake in mind which i wanted to attempt but alas, the naughty bacteria persisted and won the battle. I’ve been unwell for more than a week now. Most of the days, i feel lethargic and all i wanna do is sleep.
Anyway, yesterday was the girlfriend’s birthday. Though unwell, i couldn’t not go. I’ve not seen them for 2 months already and i miss the girls. Unlike the rest of them who would meet up on weekly basis, i see them only 8 times or less a year! (my current position is to be blamed) Moreover, it’d be just dinner, a 2 + hour dinner.
So off i went for my hot date with the girls on Valentine’s Day and ditched poor Darcy (not that we would ever do anything like that) at home. On the way home in the car, the radio was on and of course, the topic was about surprises and marriages and more surprises for our other halves. I sighed out loud, knowing extremely well that even at gun point, Darcy will never do anything romantic for me!
By the time i reached home, Darcy was already asleep. As i entered the bathroom, i let out a LOUD gasp and mumbled excitedly, Oh wow, he (Darcy) actually bought something for me!!!!
What a lovely SURPRISE!!
Like seriously! I mean, we have never celebrated V-Day, except this one time back in 2001 when we actually did a double date with his parents. Hahaha! Yes i know.. with HIS PARENTS!!! 0_O
Then i stared at the bag for a while… Hmmm.. didn’t i see this bag in the kitchen just this morning?
Then i brushed the silly thought aside.
Then i peeked. I almost couldn’t believe my eyes!
Then i grabbed and pulled the present out.
Then i widened my eyes. As big as the ping pong ball i’d say.
Because this was what i saw.
Trust me. It was truly WTF moment. HAhahaa!
This book has been sitting in the bathroom for the longest time ever! Surely Darcy won’t pull this kinda joke on me, will he? :(
Then i peeked again. Oooh! There was something else (!!) but sure it sure looked familiar though.
Then i grabbed and pulled another present out.
WAH LAO EH!!
Boy1′s Pokemon book?!?!?!
Then i found a note ..
It says, “Gotcha! It’s actually in my car!”
But somehow, i thought it wrote, “Gotcha! It’s actually FROM my car!”
I blame the flu, and the cough. I’ve no idea why i was so blur.. but i really thought what Darcy meant was these books were found in his car, so he brought them up and pretended they were my V-Day pressie! (of course, it didn’t make sense at all because i knew these stuff cannot be from Darcy’s car because they have been in the loo the whole time!)
The truth is, i wasn’t sad or anything like that at all. Given how much the husband likes to fool around with me, i’m not surprise that he would actually do such thing. In the end, i just smiled and thought, hey.. that guy actually made an effort to do all these. So not him! So yup, it was quite pleasant surprise after all :)
I even kept the ‘toilet paper love notes‘ in my precious-everything box ok! Don’t pray pray!
As i scrambled to the bed that night, i told the sleepy husband that i’d bite him in the ass (which i did. ok ok, TMI TMI! Haha!) for the prank which he pulled and he was like, huh??? But why?!?! Did you go to my car?!?!
I was like, HUH?!?! Your car? Why would i go to your car?!?!
Darcy : because i wrote that the present was in my car?!?
Me : huh? your car or my car?!?!
Darcy : my car!
Me : ermm.. but that was not what you wrote!
(and just right after i said that, the image of the second note came on and i was like OMG! so that was what the note was about! telling me that the present is actually in the car and not whatever #%$&* that i thought it was! LOL!! )
Me : OMG!
Darcy : *sigh* this is what happens when you try to give creative surprises to stooopiiiig pig.
To be continued. :)
