OOOOOH!! You gon get in troubllllllle!!!

That's what I was thinking as I heard the mailman lay a package against my door. I tiptoed to the window and peeked out the blinds. I see the mailman walking away from my door back to his truck. I giggle and wonder if its okay to immediately open the door and snatch up my package. I decide, no.... you don't want to seem too pressed. Then I say "Oh what the hell?? The mailman doesn't care and it is snowing. You know you don't want whatever it is to get wet. That would be bad."

So I knew this package was coming because I was on the phone with the b.f. when he mailed it on Friday. I just wasn't sure if it would get here today or tomorrow. Now, whenever he or anyone else sends me anything, he's very adamant about opening it on the intended day. My birthday package in August arrived at least 3 days early. Now I knew I would be alone on my birthday because I had only been in Pittsburgh for a month, and my dad was out of town for two weeks. So he was like, why wouldn't you wait? ...I couldn't! And it even had wait until your birthday in huge letters all over the outside of the package.

I was one of those kids who doesn't wait for Christmas either b/c what's the point? I mean, really. My mom used to let me open mine whenever I wanted once I got to a certain age. I would usually only make it to Christmas Eve. When my godmother used to send gifts, especially in the last couple of years, I would open the package as soon as it got to the house. Lolol. Mainly because she sent the BEST gifts.

This year, when all my friends sent me Christmas cards, I was on the phone with the b.f. when I saw them sitting on the table. I was so excited!! Like awww!! We're so grown! Sendin Christmas cards and such! Do you know what he said? "You have to wait til Christmas!" For a card??? Uh uh. You takin it too far now. I'm not waiting til Christmas for a card. Do you know what he said? Can I tell you what he said?? "If you open it, then I'm going to tell you what I got you for Christmas." I said, "UHHHH!! That's not fair! We always open our Christmas cards as soon as we get them! You can't make me have your Christmas traditions! And are you threatening me??" But... like a good little girlfriend, I put the cards down and went back upstairs. NOT! I know y'all didn't believe that b.s. That's right I opened my damn cards! Lolol.

So anyway, back to today. I said to myself, "You gon get in trouble if you open that package. You know he has these things about days and blah blah blah." I'm saying this as I'm looking at it, right? Yeah. So then I'm like, but there are two holes that are leaking everywhere. Now that part was just an added bonus from the big G (God). Thanks G! I really appreciate that. You know those padded envelopes? It was in one of those and the insides were actually spilling on my floor. For real! I promise. If it didn't take a minor miracle for me to post pics, I would take a picture of it. I was like well, I have to open it. So... needless to say, less than 5 minutes after it was taken from the truck, I was opening it.

Do you know why you should ABSOLUTELY have the double b.f. (best friend turned boyfriend)? Because they know you!! Now... I will say I just went ahead and told him what to get me... AND I LOVE IT!!! I got the Rachael Ray package! Whoo!! Her book, 365: No Repeats (365 days of different recipes, and every single one can be made in 30 minutes or less); and a 3-disc dvd set of 30 Minute Meals called "Warm and Wonderful"..... Yayayayayayayay! Doesn't that sound like a bad porn title, though? And the sweetest card in America. Anyway, I'll be in more trouble later today when he finds out I opened it a day early. Good thing he doesn't feel it necessary to read my blog when he talks to me!! I can postpone the noise. Whoo hoo!!

Ladynay said...

X Factor said...

Yeah, 365: No Repeats is FANTABULOUS! I broke down and bought it for myself, and I love every yummy page!

Peabo DeBarge said...

just like everybody else, i was thinking "why the hell is it leaking ?", i'm glad to hear that you got what you wanted. that NEVER happens to me, i always end up with stuff i have to pretend to like. :-)

CNEL said...

LoL I so knew that you were going to open the package, I could sense it LoL. I on the other hand hate getting stuff early, because I want to avoid the temptation. I generally still wait to the day of to open it, there probably are exceptions, but not really. But then again there's the argument if it's yours open it whenever the heck you please.

So...Wise...Sista said...

But like...wait for what reason??
Don't be sending me no conditional gifts!

Unless it's a ticking time bomb, why it matter when I open it? lol
If you had waited to open it wouldn't you be behind a day with Rachael Ray? :)

Ya BF is the shit!

jameil1922 said...

it was the padding stuff that was leaking!! isn't that appalling??? perhaps shedding would be more appropriate. it was gray and powdery. like tainted anthrax... or bad coke.

heart/espanol (aka miguel).... bad gifts make it verrrrrrrry easy to wait. i won't list the people whose gifts i can ALWAYS wait to open. and by wait i mean even after the event.

epsi... you know what i'm gonna say right??? turn on rachael ray! :) love her!!

simmer lady. lolol

xfactor... i read myself to sleep w/a cookbook for the first time in my life!! yay!! lolol. faaaaabulous.

cnel i just couldn't wait. so i stopped trying.

wise one... isn't he? awww. he left me the cutest message today, too.

CNEL said...

LoL thanks for the insights as always Happy Valentine's Day.

Chris said...

oh yeah, today was Valentine's Day. whatever. Hope you had a good one though.

spchrist said...

If i had a g/f...i would open the package early and act surprised if she asked.

Don't mind Chris...he is BEYOND bitter about V-day...I'm ready for love and I have a poem on my page to prove it.

Accomplice said...

bad porn title-hehe

that is a very sweet present.

Guide_to_life said...

yeah that's what I'm trying to find out what inside the pkg. was leaking?
Well at least you can cook him a meal if he is upset you opened it early

jameil1922 said...

guide... and of course you know now he's challenging my cooking gangsta. i am sooo not scared of him. esp since he considers pb&j/cereal and pizza worthy of being called dinner!

sp... you cracketh me up! lol don't mind chris. lololol

Mrs A. said...

dang, i must be late on the rachel ray tip...i needs that...i's be running out of things to cook. does it have a good number of vegan/vegetarian dishes?

jameil1922 said...

hmmm interesting question. let me go check. i think she prides herself on most of her recipes being good w/or w/o meat. i LOVE meat, but i could see some of these being good w/o meat. ok i'll go look now.....

ok i'm back! girl! i never would've noticed this w/o that question! yeah! she has a lot of them! i'm so excited! (can you tell?) sometimes i go back and read my stuff and think damn why am i using so many exclamation marks?? and double question marks. ugh. not cute. sometimes. lol but that's me! lolol. anyway. yes, lots of veggie recipes, vegan might be a stretch for some of them. good choice, though.

jameil1922 said...

oh and guide i would cook for him if he wasn't 500 miles away. he's tryin to punk me into said meal. I WILL NOT BE PUNKED!! (lying) i would love to cook for my baby.
