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!!
