A Spoiled Surprise?
You know those times when you accidentally come across a present meant for you and you feel bad because you really weren't looking around for presents and you feel like you spoiled the surprise?
On St. Patrick's Day, I went out for a drive with Lucky. I brought Jeremy's cell phone with me and I heard it ding. I stopped somewhere to look at the phone in case someone had something work-related they needed to talk to Jeremy about. I noticed there was a text and read that it said Jeremy's package had been delivered. The text said what was in the package- the dvd for Pirates of Penzance.
Oh, no. I wanted that movie. Jeremy must have ordered it as a present for me, maybe for Mother's Day or our anniversary or my birthday. Oh, no. I like surprises and Jeremy likes surprising me, but I felt so bad for ruining this one.
What was I going to do? Should I not even mention the text? Should I tell him about everything? I felt so bad.
When I got home, still feeling bad I went into my room to put things away and saw this bag sitting on the bed.
Yay! I hadn't ruined the surprise.
I handed Jeremy his phone and told him he had a message. When he looked at his phone, he asked if I had read the text. Yes, but I was so relieved I could tell him the whole story of being worried I had ruined the surprise but it turned out I hadn't after all. He was glad that he had been excited enough that he couldn't wait to give the movie to me so he made it a St. Patrick's Day present.
So... Phew. It turned out great and we were both happy with how it turned out.
