Reuel and I didn't really get to celebrate Valentines Day on Thursday, but it was cool with me, after he apologized for not purchasing so much as a card for me. Yep, you read that right ladies, my hubs didn't even purchase me so much as card ya'll. Basically his logical reasoning for this outlandish behavior was that I told him I didn't want anything and that I had suggested we celebrate on Saturday, Lol! I mean, when I said I didn't want anything, I didn't mean I didn't want the typical flowers and a card! What on earth was he smoking, I meant I didn't want a diamond ring or a Cartier Watch for crying out loud! Seriously, he should have known better, I've never been that much of a trooper. come on, dunn- deezy, this is me we're talking about. For those of you who know me, you know I was in total shock right?
I was like.... um, he's playing, I know I got some flowers up in hea somewhere. I bet they're exotic too. Lol, I looked around the house, and everything looked pretty freakin' normal. I tipped over to our bedroom, up, no flowers there.
Oh, he's really trying to be romantic, he probably decked the bathroom out with flowers, candles, and ran me a relaxing eucalyptus bath (which happens to be my fav). I open the door and what do I see, NOTHING! What in the world, NOTHING, only the dirty pJ's I took off that morning. I strutted in the kitchen and said- babe, you didn't get me anything? He was looking all puzzled in the face too. His immediate response was, Jamaya, you specifically said you didn't want anything. You even told me that you wanted to celebrate on Saturday because you had school tonight. Now you got me feeling terrible. I would've got you something if I would have known. I was like, really Reuel!
We joked about that all day Friday... he thought it was the funniest thing, I too found it to be quite amusing!
Wellz, when Saturday came around, we made up for the EPIC events that took place on Thursday-Lol
