Friends, have I got news for you. A “girl’s shopping day” turned out in my favor, due to the efforts a friend of Cheryl’s. After a fair bit of arm twisting, Cheryl was convinced to surprise me with a new 20 inch iMac and iPod Nano yesterday evening. (My birthday is right around the corner.) It was quite a surprise… when I received the email from the Apple Store containing the receipt… three hours before they got home.
I thought I might feign surprise when Cheryl got home, but I’m a terrible actor. Then she asked me straight up: “are you surprised?” The correct answer would have been an enthusiastic “yes,” but I couldn’t bring myself to lie under direct examination. Now I feel like a heel… albeit one with a great new computer.
Love is in the air.
