My Man: So, what do you think I got you for your birthday?
Me: Honey, I have no clue. The last thing I really wanted and desired was a book case, and you got me that a few years ago. Now it's all gravy.
Some time later......
Text Message From My Man: What's behind Door #1?
Yes, he put wrapping paper (Christmas wrapping paper, but hey - it's what we had in the Bat Cave....) over my book case. With my birthday gifts, naturally - behind the paper.
I was all set to wait until today. Really, I was. I'm really good about (nice) surprises. I can wait. I won't peak. I wasn't one of those kids who went snooping around the house looking for where "Santa" hid our Christmas gifts.
I'm an honest soul by nature.
But My Man? Was practically bouncing up and down. So I made the supreme sacrifice (ahem) and pulled back the paper behind Door #1 on Saturday.
OMG a Kindle Paperwhite! And a new cell phone! I loved my ancient Sony PRS-505 like crazy-cakes (a Christmas gift from My Man way back in 2007.....) and old (and my first) smartphone - but I feel like I've entered the 21st century in screen quality. It's breathtaking! It's wonderful! Hell, I played with my toys all weekend long. And I've got them just in time to take them on my upcoming road trip to RWA.
