After some impromptu running around this afternoon with my youngest niece, we were on the way home when I mentioned that she likely wouldn't see Mel since he was going to be practicing with Ritchie. Both of us were surprised to see his truck in the driveway. Both of us literally walked into the front door after we found it locked. Weird. Get it unlocked and there's Mo. He kept following me around & I couldn't figure out why. Walk into my office, drop my purse on it's hook, sit in my chair. Mel's still looking weird. I saw something on my desk and asked him "What's this?". "I don't know." he says. I hold it out to him so he can see it better and still the blank look. Then I face forward. And literally jumped.
Sitting right on top of my filing cabinet was a new HUGE 32" flat screen tv. "Happy Birthday!" he said. And explained how Tonya & I nearly caught him running down the hallway with the old tv to hide it. Surprised hardly describes what I felt. We'd talked about getting a different tv for in here but I never really thought much about it. Apparently Mel had been.
He even said maybe he'd see about getting the HD cable and a DVR in here for me. And then he said "You're spoiled." With a smile.
Is that such a bad thing??
