Pony or Popcorn?
“I have a surprise for you,” I told Jacob this afternoon.
“Really?! I love surprises. Is it a pony?”
Now where Jacob would put a pony is another story I believe.
“Is it a tank? If it is a tank I need to know so I can get a parking decal for it.” heh.
On our way to the surprise I asked him to promise me he was going to get in it.
“So it is a tank!?”
Nope, just a shipping box. A huge shipping box filled with peanuts!!!
He needed no coaxing, once he confirmed there weren’t any pointy/pokey things left in the box he hopped in the box faster than a kid waiting for the leaves to get scraped together.
This box was huge. It held my lab’s new fluorimeter and when I saw it this morning I knew I wanted to enjoy this with my man, so I made my prof save it for me to “use” later.
I think Jacob was pleasantly surprised by this and not toooo disappointed that it wasn’t a tank. However, he did guess it as we were walking into the ISC, meany. I think I won’t ever tell him I’m going to surprise him again, just do it. Or maybe I shouldn’t have talked about getting a new fluorimeter all day…whatever.
