be safe

back in december,
i came home from work
to tell flake that i had gotten him a present

now to be honest, i'm not good at being hush hush about
good surprises.
most people that know me IRL
(in real life....for those people like my mama who don't know bloggy shorthand)
can vouch for the fact that if i have a good surprise, like a gift, or exciting news,
i can't hold it in.
i just HAVE to tell (or give, show, etc)!!!
i hate waiting until christmas, birthdays, whatever days.....
i just can't stand it....

so ...... when i came home from work
and told flake i had gotten him a present,
he knew better than to ask me to keep it quiet until christmas
however.....he tried.
i told him, i wouldn't tell him what it was....
but i had to give him a hint.
(aka in l.o.v. language....i'm getting ready to cave!!)

so our conversation went something like this
but do remember....this took place 8 plus months ago....
l.o.v.: i got you something today
flake: a present?
l.o.v.: yeah, well, kind of
flake: kind of? well, don't tell me
l.o.v.: but
flake: please, i'd like to have at least one surprise
l.o.v.: fine, i won't tell you, about a hint?
flake: fine
l.o.v.: i got you something, but i don't want you to ever use it
flake: what?
l.o.v.: i got you something, but i don't want you to ever use it
flake: i heard you, but i didn't understand you
l.o.v.: really isn't a christmas present
flake: what? .... fine, just tell me
l.o.v.: yay! i got you accident insurance, but please don't ever use it!

yep.....that's right....i got the boy accident insurance!
to those of you who know flake IRL....
you know that accident insurance is probably one of the best gifts the boy could ever get!
(both of us actually!)
neither of us were given much grace,
and both of us find ways to get hurt,
but always have good stories to tell in the end!
so, as you can imagine, i was quite excited with my purchase!

fast forward to present day....
flake is making good safe choices....
(well at least he says he is....down in texas)
while LF, has put himself in some compromising situations....

so i wonder, do you think that the accident insurance will cover him if he gets hurt??

Oh my, I think you might need a separate policy for LF! He seems to live life on the edge.

Too cute!
I'm also terrible about keeping gift secrets.

On a different note I tagged you in a meme over at my place!

I didn't even know accident insurance existed!

Anonymous said...

Lol! I am the same way. I can't hold in a surprise!

Mrs. Goodneedle said...

Uh-oh... that LF is reckless, don't know if there's a policy out there that will cover this type of wild and crazy behavior.

In its own awkward way, that is the cutest thing ever. :-)

Oh, and I can't keep presents a secret AT ALL. Twinsies!
