So K and I were having some wonderful cuddle time when she asked me if I wanted my anniversary present a week early. She had been asking a few times this week if I wanted it so I figured sure. It had to be pretty special for her to want me to have it sooner. So I said yes. So she told me to get the card in the pink envelope on her desk. I brought it back and opened up to a letter rather than a traditional card. A beautiful love letter. I was nearly in tears. Never has anyone shown me so much love as she has. When I finished reading it, she giggled in the background.
“Ok. Close your eyes.”
I closed my eyes and could hear her dig out the present from under the bed. She put a large box into my hands.
“Ok. Open it!”
I could see a twinkle in her eyes. I flipped open a lid and saw another box inside..
Along the edges was a single word I had been longing to get at some point. A word that would satisify the geek in me while still keeping me active: Wii.
The woman got me a Wii console with sports game and simple Wii Fitness in it. It was great! We each did a fitness test. She also played a few games of tennis while I did a few rounds of boxing. I did well on the boxing but not so well on the fit test. I apparently scored at a level of a 77 year old (!!!!). I will be looking into getting an actual Wii Fit boogie board and other stuff. But I have to say, this is a fun console! 🙂
And even more special, the letter made my heart sing even more.
Note: my arms, on the other hand, are rather sore. :/
