I was trying to finish up Mr. D’s Christmas shopping yesterday. What do you get the man who doesn’t need anything? Frustrated, wracking my brain I turned to The Twitter.
Then I saw a tweet – Colts Tickets from Scott Wise. I remember Mr. D saying he would like to go to a game this year (even though the Colts suck.) Then the planning began….
I DM’ed Scott about the tickets, told him I wanted them and made arrangements to pick them up today. Yesterday while all of this was going on I told Mr. D that Kameron’s school had a Washington D.C. meeting tomorrow night (just to make sure he didn’t have anything else going on – Mr. D is in charge of the Washington D.C. meetings.) He put the meeting on the calendar, no questions asked, and my plan was in motion. Surprise him with tickets, pre-game reservations made at Iaria’s – then him and Kameron are off to the game. PERFECT!
Kameron and I went up to Scotty’s headquarters to pick up the tickets. Mr. D mentioned that he was having lunch at Palomino this afternoon, so I knew exactly where he would be to surprise him with the tickets. My intention was to pack his Colt’s shirt, jeans, a hat, and his comfy shoes and deliver those items and the tickets when he was finishing up lunch. Sucker already wore his Colts shirt to work – one less thing to pack.
Kameron and I scoped out Palomino, found where he was sitting, and the sneak attack was on.
Slightly surprised to see us, Mr. D was very happy to see the tickets and hear of our reservation at Iaria’s.
Boom – I just got that – Wife Of The Year….
