A week ago yesterday I told you all (via Facebook and Twitter) that I expected something from you. That I needed your help. Remember?
Yesterday The Lazy Dad calls me and says, "I picked up something for you today from Kroger."
In my head I'm thinking... chocolate? ... a candy bar made of chocolate? ... a cake made of chocolate? .... [pause] *crickets chirping* ... a piece of chocolate covered in chocolate?
Yes, that's what ran through my head alright.
Aside from the crickets chirping part. I'm not that empty headed. Usually.
"What did you get me?" I asked while I was thinking about chocolate.
"You know those soup bowls you liked so much while we were camping? I found those for $1.50 each. So I bought five of them."
I was excited! I did like those soup bowls our camping buddy let us eat out of that day and now I'd have some too. Nice!
So last night The Lazy Dad walks in the house with some Kroger bags and hands them to me. I get all excited to see my new cute soup bowls and take them into the kitchen. Where I see THIS sitting on the counter.
"WHAT DID YOU DO?!"
He laughs, all proud of himself like he had just pulled a fast one on me, and says, "It was such a good deal I couldn't pass it up!"
Knowing that I had recently told you all that I was going to personally hold you all accountable if I didn't get one of these bad boys for Christmas, I immediately took a picture of it and sent out this message.
Now, it's not a Tassimo per say but it IS just like one!
And all I can say is, YOU GIRLS ARE GOOD. Not only did you get him to buy it for me, but you got him to buy it for me in one week!
*tear* I'm proud to call you friends.
Because surely all of this happened because of you, right?!
So I say to The Lazy Dad, "Is this an early Christmas present?"
Then he says with a big grin, "Happy Pastor Appreciation month!"
Boy, I love my Pastor.
Funny side note...
Turns out the reason Kroger had "such a good deal" on this one was because it's like the original one Keurig made, and after playing around with it we figured out why Keurig stopped making it so we are actually taking it back.
Just kidding. The Lazy Dad's shopping around for a better one at a good price.
Now The End.
