The other night Tyler told me to come into the kitchen because he had a present for me that he brought home from work.
He was so excited.
Before you learn what it is, you must know what Tyler does for a living.
Tyler is a National Account Executive for an Atlas Vanlines Agent in Minnesota. This means that he works with companies when their employees need to relocate.
To put it simply… he moves people. He doesn’t actually “move” them, he is the behind the scenes person who makes sure everything goes off without a hitch.
For his more VIP clients, he is with them throughout the entire move and because of this; he really gets to know them well.
A lot of times, these clients come to him with things they are planning to donate or throw away and they ask him if he wants it first.
We have received a brand new child’s rocking horse, a play house, a huge stuffed polar bear, a never used Coach handbag, etc…
It can be really fun!
So… the other night, I went into the kitchen to see what he had brought home for me.
It was a mirror.
Specifically it was a Magnified Mirror with Lights from the Sharper Image.
The only way to see yourself is to put your face up close and then you will see lines and grooves and freckles that you did not know even existed.
I know this because I did it.
And then I screamed in horror and stepped back in shock.
But then I returned to take one more look just to make sure of what I saw.
And then I was sad. And mad.
Meanwhile Tyler was just laughing and laughing.
You see, I thought I looked like this:
But really, I look like this:
Tyler said that he brought it home just because he knew I would be horrified and that it was funny.
Somehow, “funny” is not the word I would use.
Since I am too “old” to injure him extensively, I guess I will settle for him bringing the garbage cans in every freakin’ week for the rest of my life.
And that must not be too far away according to the lines on my face.
Now I am off to Google Major Reconstructive Surgery Botox.
