Or my totally awesome Valentine's gift from another woman.
Sometimes it takes a woman to know what another woman really needs. I recently mentioned in passing to my oldest friend, Mistress Violet, that I wish I was dating someone that would send me flowers on Valentine's Day. It was a fleeting thought voiced in an IM and once expressed I didn't think about it again. MV did. Thought about it and ran with it.
Today at work I received a dozen red & white tulips from MV and her boyfriend. Not only did MV remember my fav flower but she also included a card that made a sweet, loving gesture turn into an awesome gift. The idea behind the card was that I didn't have to tell anyone at work the flower's were from a female friend if I didn't want to. Of course if the card made me blush while I laughed until I cried then MV would consider that a bonus. She got her wish.
Not only did she make me laugh but she made every single co-worker who read the card laugh. What did that card say? Read on.
"From the band, thank you for the most enjoyable night of our lives, we can't wait to see you when we're back in town! (That thing with your tongue... WOW!)"
Yeah, she rocks. We've been friends since we were 14. That's almost 24 years for those of you struggling to do the math. We've been friends for over half our lives. That's pretty good for a friendship that started when she walked up to me on my first day at marching band practice and said, "Hi. Wanna be my friend?" What do you say to that?! You say, "Yes" and you never look back.
So please join me in giving this amazing woman a round of applause.
Now if you'll excuse me, I'll be backstage with the band. Rock on!
