Vals Day Rain Check? Really?

15 Feb

We just celebrated  another commercialized quasi-holiday where florists and candy makers are able to make enough money to buy a second home.

Turtle took me out for dinner on Sunday.  We went to a restaurant we had always wanted to check out and order baby back ribs.

“Let’s get dessert too,” he said.

“I don’t eat dessert, you know that.  Too many calories.”

“Let’s just get dessert.  We never get dessert.  Let’s make an exception,” he insisted.

We ordered dinner and then he said he forgot his wallet in the car.  My eyes followed him as he made a wrong turn to another side of the restaurant that was obviously not the main entrance.

I began to wonder if he was planning to put anything in the coconutter he wanted to order.  My mind suddenly went a little crazy.  My goodness, I thought…will he propose officially??????

He came back and sat down.  We ordered a pitcher of Yeungling. Soon dinner arrived.

Now- when it comes to ribs, I don’t play.  I eat with my hands and make sure there are no meat left on the bones.  In fact, I am so sloppy when it comes to ribs.  After he insisted on ordering dessert, I decided not to take chances.  If he was gonna propose, I did not want him to slip the ring on a finger slathered with bbq sauce.  So I used SILVERWARE to eat my baby backs.

“Why are you using silverware?” he asked.

“Oh nothing…just wanted to keep it clean today.”

We finished dinner.  Nothing.  Then he ordered dessert.  To go.

I won’t lie. I was a tad disappointed.  I never knew I would be one of those women who wanted to be surprised in the middle of dinner, screaming – and crying and then having everyone applaud when she says yes.  I shrugged it off….after all, he had shelled out almost 70 bucks for dinner – and I had a pretty good buzz from the yingi.

When we got home, I decided to give him a little Vals day treat and paraded around in a sexy little oufit.  And by outfit, I mean nothing but my underoo.

“Oooh,” he said, momentarily taking his eyes of the Assassin’s Creed Brotherhood video game he was playing.  “Can I take a rain check?  Say like in three hours?”

Are you kidding me?  I thought to myself.  I put on my PJs and went to bed.  If he woke me up, he was going to get kneed in the groin.

The next day – on Vals day – he sent me these:

And these:

Annoying one day, sweet as can be the next.

    Don’t worry, he will propose. It can’t be far off now.

      I am not that worried…I just hate surprises. He is the type to make one big embarrassing gesture … I would hate that.
