It’s time for another Aloha Friday, the day that you take it easy and look forward to the weekend, in Hawaii and blog land anyway. As you should know by now, over at An Island Life, Kailani decided that on Fridays she would take it easy on posting and ask a simple question for you to answer. Nothing that requires a lengthy response.
If you’d like to participate, just post your own question on your blog and leave your link at An Island Life’s blog. Don’t forget to visit the other participants! It’s a great way to make new bloggy friends!
Last night I was doing my WiiFit fitness test and it was all, “You have a WiiFit age of 28, that’s just 2 years older than your actual age! Blah blah blah…” and I was like, “Huh, I must have entered my birthday into this wrong, because it should be 3 years…” Except I was wrong. Because I’m 26, not 25. Now, to be fair, I just turned 26 in December, so it hasn’t been that long, but I don’t mean, “I forgot I just had a birthday,” I mean that I felt with conviction that I was 25 and turning 26 THIS December. I was sure of it. I had to do the math to convince myself.
So like any smart momma, I called my husband and regaled him with this story, ending it with, “So you should pick up a birthday cake on your way home, because we clearly need to celebrate.” And then he came home without the cake and I was all, “Where’s my birthday cake?” and he was like, “I thought you were kidding.” And I was like, “You clearly don’t know me very well.” Then after dinner he ran out to the car to get his gloves from the car and I’m thinking, “Seriously? Your gloves? Can’t they stay in the car? I want to open up Wii Rockband now…” But then he came back WITH the birthday cake which he clearly had bought but then either forgot somehow or very cleverly left outside just so he could surprise me even though it had been my idea and the cake was really good, like way nicer than I was thinking when I asked him to buy me a cake at the last minute. So he clearly knows me VERY well and is the most awesome husband in the universe and that’s the end of my story.
- Have you ever forgotten how old you were? For like more than 5 minutes? (Because I’ve been carrying this fantasy of being a year younger since at least my birthday and it’s possible I thought I was 24 before that… how long has this been going on?)
- Do you think this can be blamed on my pregnant brain OR is it a sign I’m getting olllllld OR [insert your own excuse for my forgetfulness here].
- What is the sweetest thing your husband (or boyfriend – or previous boyfriend or husband if you are currently single) has done for you?
- Do you like surprises? Do you like planning them? What’s the best surprise you’ve given or gotten?
