A Birthday Gift

Rico was all mysterious about his gift for the past week but he would openly tell me that it’s coming.

He’d say stuff like, “You’ll like my gift” “Can it be my gift for your birthday and Christmas?” “I’m on my way to buy your gift now”. He certainly made sure I’d expect the gift. When he did arrive at my doorstep last night, he was holding it behind his back, which of course made me want to take a peek at what he’s hiding. Oh, the suspense.

Finally, he asked me to cover my eyes. Ta-da! A small box wrapped in red and green ribbons.


You’ve got to love the message on the card. Awww. Utterly sweet. Heehee.

But he told me to wait till 12mn to open it. Gah. I pestered him about it a bit, asking “so what’s in it?” to which of course he didn’t respond to and merely provided a clue — “I got it in your favourite colour.” And I exclaimed, “Green!” even when the first colour that came to mind was pink. Egad. Whatever can it be? So, I just finished getting ready cuz I was on my way to Alabang to hang out at a 24-hour Starbuck’s after having dinner with Rico.

In separate cars, we drove over to Mocha Blends BF to get something to eat and spend a bit of time together. When I arrived, he then said I can go ahead and open my gift! Weeee!


I had a guess at what was inside but was too afraid to think it cuz I might get disappointed if I find that it was something different. I wanted to enjoy whatever gift Rico gave me. Can you guys guess what he did give me?


Omigod! Omigod! Omigod!

It’s either the power of positive thinking or my blatant wishing but yea, I scored an 8GB iPod Nano for my birthday! Woot!

I’m deliriously happy! I’m so ecstatic! I’ve always wanted an iPod, preferred a handy one so it’ll be easy for me to carry around esp when I start jogging (wishful thinking? Well, I’ve always wanted to do it! Heh). Never thought that Rico (or anyone) would give it to me as a gift for my birthday!

Thank you, sweetie, for a very thoughtful gift! AND — I have to say this — I love the build up! I love surprises! You guys should have seen the grin on my face when I first saw what was inside. My face literally lit up, me thinks. LOL.

Happy birthday to me!! Woohoo! :mrgreen:

P.S. I reckon I’ll be in good mood for at least a month. Don’t push it, though. Heh. :lol:
