This is the year, Mike will finally come through, I just know it. Every year he forgets not only my birthday but out anniversary, even though they are on the same day...but that doesn’t matter because this year is different. After he forgot last year, I decided to make little comments on how I’ve never had a surprise birthday and I’ve always wanted one. Since I was a little girl. I was so giddy as I straightened my hair. After some hard work I was finally able to dye it the right shade of purple, so it matched my lilac eyes perfectly. This was all in preperation for this wonderful day. Thinking about it now maybe I was overdoing it a bit when I periodically sent Mike those videos of people getting surprised on their birthdays. On second thought maybe I wasn’t, men need a little nudging sometimes. My man clearly needed it.
As I sat in front of my bathroom mirror, I grabbed my eyeshadow brush dabbed it on the pallet and started applying my eyeshadow. Oh my gosh, I can’t wait to see what kind of balloons will be there. Hopefully he remembered to get the giant 3 and 5 numbers so I can take some cute pictures with them. Finishing my eyeshadow moved on to making my eye wings I grabbed my angle brush and dipped it into my eyeliner pot. Lifting it to the outer edge of my eye I started to draw the wings. I wonder if he remembered to invite Tiff. That woman does not know how to keep things to herself, so I’m shocked she hasn’t slipped up yet. I’m glad she doesn’t want to do anything with a high clearance level in the government. That girl would single handedly start World War four simply because she couldn’t keep her mouth shut about the nuclear war heads access key at lunch. With both eye wings finished, I put the angle brush down and looked over at my waterproof mascara. I should probably prepare for tears. I am going to be taking so many pictures tonight.
I stood in front of my bedroom mirror deciding what I should wear. I held the red and black dress in front of me. I’m almost positive he decorated his apartment with my favorite colors. I picked up the second outfit and held it in front of me. Although I could wear my combat boats and leather jacket with this shirt and ripped jeans. With all this indecision I decide to go to my new feline roommate, Whiskerton. Leaving my room and I walked around my apartment to find him. However, he was nowhere in sight. My apartment wasn’t all that big so there weren’t many places for him to hide, so I called out to him. But I was only met with silence.
I started to feel a chill and that’s when I noticed the window was open. Oh, shoot he must have got out. This might be the best birthday ever! Tiff is going to be mad at me because she was so happy when she gave me that gift. I’ll break the news to her tomorrow when we meet up for coffee. Walking back to my room I got dressed in my t-shirt and ripped jeans. Walking to the door I put on my combat boots then was left my apartment. On the way to my car, I heard the chime from my phone. Mike sent me a text that read “Hey babe I’m home so you can come over whenever.” Look at him playing it cool like he didn’t plan the most amazing birthday surprise ever.
As I drove over to his apartment, I couldn’t help but tap the steering wheel as drove to his place. Mike must have had an amazingly coordinated plan. Everyone has been playing it so cool. Mom and Dad sent their usual happy birthday letter, Tiff was her normal self when we talked on the phone this morning, even Mike he didn’t slip up once. He usually forgets to say happy birthday sit makes sense he wouldn’t do anything out of the ordinary. That guy sure knows how to keep me on my toes. However, he slipped up when he told me he’ll be coming home early today I knew something was up, he never leaves work early. Which could only mean he was picking up what I was putting down all last year.
Pulling into Mike’s apartments parking lot, I got out of my car and took the elevator up to his apartment. I started to practice my surprise face in the elevator mirror. I had to at least pretend like I didn’t know anything. When the elevator doors opened, I couldn’t help myself but to run to his apartment door. Composing myself and checking if my makeup was still good, I took out my key for his place and opened the door.
