izzy and i will have been together for one year in a couple days
we decided to exchange gifts on the date to celebrate
but izzy gets so excited about giving gifts to people that she’s been bugging me everyday trying to get me to exchange gifts with her early
i buckled last night in the car
she ran in the house to grab her gift as soon as i agreed to an early swap
as soon as i noticed her coming back i pulled my hat over my eyes
she got in the car and looked at me and laughed. what are you doing?
i said before i see your gift, i want to tell you what i got you. ok?
ok, i got us a hotel room in new york for tomorrow night. i figure we can drive there tomorrow night and have dinner and relax and go to the MoMa the next day…
she didn’t respond
she sat her gift in my lap
it felt like a small stack of papers
i pulled my hat from over my eyes and looked at her
she looked back at me with a blank stare
i looked down at the papers
two bus tickets
a week before last night, she asked me if i thought that there was a chance that we got each other the same gift
i told her that i was 200% sure that there was no chance
two hundred. percent.
