Sorry, I know I said I'd do this post yesterday, but I had an aggravating day, and made it home hours later than I expected. But anyways.. On to Valentine's!
I had decided a couple days before February 14th, that I should probably get Apple Guy something. Just a little something and a non-mushy card. He was taking me to dinner after all. Well, I procrastinated and there I was Tuesday morning, trying to figure out what to buy him. I brainstormed with my best friend, Kelly, who had met him the weekend before. He had told us a funny story about throwing a fit in Kmart when he was 5 because he wanted another He-Man action figure. (I linked that because I had no idea what it was when he was telling me about it). So we decided it would be cute if I could find a He-Man toy somewhere to give to him as a funny, thoughtful gift. I start researching online and they don't have them anywhere. Well except Amazon, and I didn't have time for that lol.
In the meantime, AG texted me asking what time I'd make it to his apartment. I told him that I had an errand to run after work and then I'd be there. He responds with, "Errand? You're not getting me a gift, right?" I waited a little bit to answer and said, "Yes, but just a little something :)". His response to this is, "Ughh well my gift to you is dinner, hun". I told him that was fine. I didn't expect him to get me anything. I mean, of course a girl can hope that she gets flowers. Even if they're cheap grocery store ones. But I wasn't upset or anything. After calling 6 different Targets to find a He-Man dvd, I finally found one.
I get off work and start heading into Houston. I get to Target and they actually have two dvds, volume 1 & 2. They're literally $5, so I contemplate buying both. But then I think, I don't want to seem like I'm putting too much emphasis on this holiday when we're not even together. Thinking back now I'm like, Really, Brittany? Like one more $5 dvd would have made any difference? Whatever, I think way too much into things. Aaaanyways, I grab the dvd and a really funny card with a guy's buttcrack on the front. Ok, maybe I overcompensated the fact that I didn't want a mushy card but oh well.
I head to his apartment and when I get there, I put his gift in my purse so he can't see it. He meets me at the door and says he needs to take a shower and do some laundry and that I was welcome to chill on the couch and watch tv. I got there about 4:30 and our dinner reservations weren't till 8:15 so it was no big deal. I settle on the couch to watch The Dog Whisperer while he showers. He comes in the living room when he's done and watches tv with me for a little bit and then starts getting his laundry together. I'm sure you're all wondering why the details of this is relevant, but you'll see. He's about to load the washing machine and I hear him say, "Shit, [my roommate] used the last of the detergent last night!". And I'm like, "Well, just wait and do laundry later." He says that he has way too much laundry to wait (which there was a lot).
So he asks if I mind if he runs to the store to get detergent real quick, which I don't. I was wearing heels and really didn't feel like doing unnecessary walking, so he told me just to stay and relax and watch tv. He leaves and I continue watching tv. Some time goes by and I'm like, Geez it's been like 40 minutes since he left. A few minutes later, I hear his key in the door. He opens the door and walks in carrying laundry detergent and these beauties.......................
And you can even still push them to the side like this...
