The following recollection was inspired by real events that took place about 4.5 years ago. Only the names have been changed to protect the innocent.
Hubby: I can’t wait for you to come home; I have a surprise for you. (Background: I had been working in another state for about 3 months…so he really missed me)
Me: OOO OOO did you get me my Harry Potter Golden Snitch Lamp?!!!! I need it!
Hubby: No, not exactly, but I think you will like this….
Upon arriving home a few days later…
Hubby: Come upstairs and look at your surprise.
Here is a picture of my “surprise” (It was a Hope chest that he made me, by hand–yea he is pretty crafty)
Me: Oh wow, that is cool. Is my HP lamp inside?
Hubby: Open it up.
There was a ring with flower petals strewn about.
Hubby: Will you marry me?
Me: Yes, but can I still have my Harry Potter lamp?
Moral of Story: We got married; and I got my HP lamp! See what a good Hubby I have?! See, I CAN be romantic! 🙂
