Double Date!

21 Dec

Last night He and I went over to His brother’s house for a gift exchange. His Bro and Bro’s GF had made us a sweet dinner of pasta, chicken and ham. Ham in anything makes it more delicious! I am all for more ham, all of the time. We had a huge jug of wine, and against my better judgment, we opened our gifts.

They had got me Dante’s Inferno from this book collection. I was thrilled! I own about 10 of these books now, and I’ve only read one of them, but man, they look just beautiful all lined up, don’t they?

Note - these aren't my actual books. But after Christmas, I'ma blow this measly collection out of the water

He received Super Mario Galaxy 2, which I’m also thrilled about. It’s a gift for both of us! Except that He says I’m not allowed to play until I complete Super Mario Galaxy 1… but it’s just too damn hard!

We got them the GF a few art supplies and the Bro some books, plus a few gifts once they get home. Then we all settled down to play some Gamecube Mario Kart.

I always prided myself on being an excellent racer in Mario Kart, but unfortunately, things have got too advanced for me now from my Super Nintendo days when I reigned king. The races were always close, but I definitely took home the loser prize that evening. I do not like to lose.

Home we went, and all was well until this morning, when He went looking for His phone. I had been using it last night to text for him on the car ride home (yes, that’s right, we have a car for the week! Bitchin’!) and I couldn’t remember where I put it. We tried calling it in the house, but to no avail. So, thinking I had left it in the car, which sucks in itself, we went to check.

But it wasn’t in the car.

It was outside of the car.

In the snow.

On the ground.

Great.

Covered in snow and dirt and ice, I had let it drop and forgotten about it. He was not pleased, and I felt like ass. All is right in the world now, but it was definitely a lesson for me in treating other people’s property the same/better than I treat my own.
