Sometimes J is a really thoughtful and considerate guy. You know, when he wants to be.
When we first started dating we took a trip to Disney. I mentioned, while we were walking around, that I thought this Minnie Mouse statue was really cute. Later that night he pretended to go to the bathroom, ran back to the store, bought the statue, took it to the car to hide it, packed it in his suitcase and gave it to me for my birthday when we got home. Very sweet.
A few weeks ago, he drove half an hour out of his way, past 10 different restaurants, to take me to Friendly’s because he knew I really wanted an ice cream sundae.
He does little things like that all the time because he is a nice guy and he loves me. However, sometimes he can be a total pain in the ass!
Earlier tonight, J had to go out. On his way out I asked him to do two things: drop the Netflix movies in the mail and pick up Hostess cupcakes on his way home, as I was having a craving and he was going to be passing a Hostess store. He agreed to both, kissed me and left.
As I walked into the kitchen to get a drink, I noticed the movies still laying on the table. Then he came home…no cupcakes. His excuse for the cupcakes…”I didn’t know what kind you liked.” Seriously??? We’ve been together for 9 years and you don’t know that I like plain old Hostess cupcakes? Bull. He just didn’t want to get out of the car.
To top the night off perfectly, J took a shower and jumped into bed while I was cleaning up his dinner and taking the dogs out. By the time I got upstairs he was sprawled across the bed and the dogs were laying on my side. Now all three of them are sound asleep with the tv blaring and he is snoring so loud that the headboard is vibrating. I am squished onto a tiny sliver of matress with two 60 pound dogs laying across my legs!
I swear, I love him, but at times like this I want to smother him with a pillow. I mean, is it so hard to just bring home the damn cupcakes? Because, cupcakes make a lot of things easier to take. If I was laying here, enjoying the fudgy goodness, I might be able to tune out the snoring. Instead, I’m going to have to poke him in the shoulder every few minutes!
Wow – I guess I’m a little cranky tonight! I hope everyone else is having a good night.
