He being the UPS man. He's a really nice guy, our UPS man. A thoughtful guy. That's why this evening he knocked on my door. He had a delivery for my cousin, who lives right next door. A delivery he assumed was a Christmas gift. As you can see in the picture above, it's quite obvious what's in the box. My thoughtful UPS guy, thinking it was likely a gift for my cousin's wife asked if he could leave it with us, just in case it was meant to be a Christmas gift. He's been our UPS guy for years. He knew we would let Ronald know we had accepted his delivery and no surprises would be ruined. This time of year, the busiest time of year for deliveries, you'd have to be a thoughtful guy to do that, to take that extra time to protect a surprise. Such a nice guy.
On the subject of surprises, let me tell you about another nice guy. A really thoughtful guy who went out of his way to cover his tracks when ordering his wife's Christmas gift. You see last year, she got a confirmation email from the sender of her Christmas gift, letting her know the item had shipped. This year he wasn't letting that happen. He covered his tracks, right down to arranging for her gift to be delivered to the next door neighbor. Do you see where I'm going with this? Yep, the UPS guy went out of his way to protect a wife's surprise and my sweet husband went out of his way to surprise his wife. Too bad one nice guy's good deed canceled out the other's. I found a great deal more humor in this than did my sweet and thoughtful husband. He said next year, I'm giving you a gift card.
About what's in that box. A couple of weeks ago, while watching the food network, I noticed the most beautiful mixer, an aqua Kitchenaid Mixer. I dvr'd the show so I could show Mitch later. Not because I needed or wanted a new mixer. I have a Kitchenaid. It was my granny's and it used to be harvest gold.Used to be because Mitch painted it for me. Not something I'd recommend just anyone try, but he happens to have some decent painting skills. He also painted my refridgerator, but that's a different story for a different day. Anyway, back to the beautiful aqua mixer. I knew he'd recently painted a golf cart nearly the exact shade of aqua, so I told him for Christmas, if he had any paint left over, I would like my Kitchenaid painted that color.
He said he had even planned to take my old Kitchenaid out to his shop so I'd think he was painting it. He tried so hard to surprise me. Such a sweetie!
