at last

I wanted to post this last week
but as you all know - I've been a bit under the weather

June 27th, 2008
at approximately 5:45 eastern standard time
my husband presented me with a package
wrapped in red and gold metallic paper

A gift?
For ME?
but.. I didn't get you anything...

He responds: "Just open it"

But what is it?
Why did you get me something?
We don't do the anniversary gift thing..

He responds: "Just open it"

- I proceeded to unwrap -

and then I see it

It was the gift I have been waiting for
for over 25 years

The gift I wanted as a kid
but never got

you know the gift In which I speak of

yeah, that's right...

It's a snoopy fan-fucking-tastic
snocone machine!

I felt like running up the mountain side
and holding it above my head to show the village below
like that scene in the lion king

it's just as beautiful as I had envisioned it
in all it's plastic glory

I'm buying a shelf for it..
and maybe one of those spot light things...

on a side note
the following day I went to see my mom
she presented me with a package..
yeah.. she bought me a snoopy sno-cone machine too
What are the odds? I wait 25 years - then get two in the same god damn week

So, some of you are probably thinking - if you wanted one so bad
why didn't you just buy one yourself?
Answer: It's not the point..

the end

I was gonna buy you one of these for Christmas, seriously! I figured it would make your day.

Yeah, what are the odds of two in one year. Weird! It's probably from all the bitchin.....I mean mentioning of the fact.

When do I get a sno cone?

Sincerely Iowa said...

One to use and one to display. You'll need the back up, they don't hold together all that well.

Micgar said...

It's not really a Snoopy Fan Fucking Tastic Snocone Machine if you purchase it yourself!
