|Paying homage to one of my fave movies of all time, Cry-Baby|
So we get home and the UPS guy has a delivery for us. I was expecting one of the gifts that I ordered for Mikey, but this big box was addressed to him, and he figured it was something he ordered for me. He goes to his office and opens it up to find it was the baseball display case that I bought for his vintage signed baseballs he's been collecting since he was a kid. He's had them stored away in a backpack as long as I've known him, and I know he wants nothing more than to display them proudly, so I thought it'd be a great gift. He felt really bad when he saw it and I just started crying because this is the third of his Christmas gifts that won't be a surprise at all. I know this seems really petty to cry over, but it was just my breaking point. I love the surprise of the gift giving at Christmas time, and unfortunately he didn't give me much to work with as far as his wishlist this year. I got him exactly what he wanted and so he likes to jokingly tease me that he already knows - that pisses me off! I did get him other things that he has no clue about, but this baseball wall mount was a big one that I was eager to see his face light up with next week...I just felt like Christmas would suck for him and it made me feel crappy, but he doesn't think like that. He felt horrible and begged me to let him give me one of my Christmas gifts tonight. I didn't want to. In my family we got to open one gift at grandpa's on Christmas eve and the rest with our family on Christmas day. That's it. So I like doing it like that, but Mikey has always been one to start begging for us to open them like weeks before! Wtf is up with that? Lol After him pleading for me to open a gift that way he could see me smile, I finally agreed with a sigh...his idea worked. I smiled and wiped those tears away. Breakdown be gone!
It's so funny the littlest things that can send me into tears after I've been going a mile a minute for weeks or months. I really needed that cry; I feel so much better. But that might just be the Chanel talking... :)
