The cat's out of the bag.
May will be a good month, this year. Summer will be here. My husband will finally be graduating (RN). It is our 7-year anniversary. And since October of last year, I have been planning a surprise graduation/anniversary trip to Hawaii for Justin and myself during that month.
He had absolutely no clue. I was doing so well at keeping my little secret. And then... Flight of the Conchords had be all retarded and ruin my surprise. They're coming here 2 DAYS after we will be leaving for Hawaii. I found this out last week. I was hoping that my spousal unit wouldn't find out. However, he did. And here is the dreaded telephone conversation where the cat slowly creeped out of the bag:
J: I have some really good news...
A: Ok, shoot.
J: Well, it will cost some $$, but it can be our anniversary present.
J: FLIGHT OF THE CONCHORDS ARE COMING TO SALT LAKE!!!
A: .... ... ...
J: In May....
A: ... ... uh huh ...
J: ... and tickets go on sale this weekend.
A: ... ... ...
J: So... what do you think?
A: ... ... uh ... ...
J: Why aren't you more excited about this?
A: *sigh*... I didn't want you to find out this way.
And then I proceeded to tell him about the not-so-surprise-anymore-because-it-was-ruined vacation. Yes, I could have lied. I SHOULD have lied. But he caught me off guard and I'm no good at lying on the spot. And let's face it, I prefer to place all blame on outside parties. So I'm blaming FOTC. They are dead to me for 10 minutes. But not longer than that because they are flippin' hilarious.
P.S. I'm also going to Hawaii in 30 days with my beautiful mother, aunt and cousin for a girl's trip! Woo hoo!! (Notice the change in header above.) And I hate how time crawls when you're excited for something. Ya know?
