Last week wasn't the best. Any week that involves you discovering you have the stomach flu in a public place just doesn't bode well. And then, last night it got really windy, which we all know I hate because I am terrified that the trees will fall on us. Paranoia, my friends, it runs in the family. Luckily there are two shining spots in my week. My getting-cuter with every day dog (chasing Arnold's slipper as we speak) and Arnold, easily the best husband ever. Not only did my husband remember Valentine's Day but he got me not flowers, not chocolate.... but a New kids on the Block T-Shirt!
I really couldn't believe it. I looked at him in disbelief and said "Where did you get this?" And he said " I went to a store called Hot Topic, found the person in the store closest to your age and asked her if they had New Kids on the Block T-Shirts".
Wow. And wow.
There is so much to love about a husband devoted enough and secure enough to
A) Indulge his wife's childhood obsessions
B) Go to Hot Topic and ask a saleslady if they had New Kids on the Block.
I was like "Wow, wasn't that embarrassing?" And he just shrugged and said "Well, whatever, at least I didn't have to figure out how to buy it on the internet. "
Happy Valentine's Day!
