A Bikini and Guitar Hero

A while ago I blogged about my strong fondness for the video game "Guitar Hero". We just had an XBOX not an XBOX 360 so we did not have the game. We just shamelessly borrowed it from time to time from youth so I could play. Paul has been looking into purchasing a 360 but we just couldn't bring ourselves to spend the money on a "game"...until the other day...

Paul was out with the kids on a daddy day and he texted me and asked if he could get a 360. He gave me all the details and Game Stop was running a sale (he knows I can't resist a sale!) so I said sure why not...we have the money...and then I asked..."What do I get?" He texted back that he had bought me something and not to worry.

When we all arrived back home we started to look at what all the daddy day had involved...including the 360. So like a child I ask, "What did you bring me?" He leads me on a scavenger hunt to find my treasure. I follow the clues and I was getting kind of excited because He had gone to all this trouble...my present must be awesome!

I finally arrive at my last clue and there was a small bag...(that usually means the gift is for "him" and not me!) It was a....bikini! What! Now those of you who know me well need to pick yourself up off of the floor at the visual of me in a bikini and finish reading! Seriously...stop laughing...stop...seriously...ok keep going because it is hilarious. I just held up this teeny tiny swimsuit...in my size, mind you...and I died laughing! I could not help myself. To even think of wearing a bikini...it's bringing me to laughing tears as we speak/type. So anyway, I told Paul that I truly appreciated his thought, but this "swimsuit" was not appropriate. He wasn't going to let me wear it in front of anyone...if I even put it on.

So then I went into the living room and there it was...GUITAR HERO! He bought me Guitar Hero...I know what you are thinking, the bikini was a joke and Guitar Hero was my real present...nope. The bikini was real too. I really didn't care though...I now own Guitar Hero. So yes, I have been playing...and having a great time.

Thanks to Paul for making me so happy, and laugh so hard!

So, needless to say, I will be returning

That is so funny. I'm with you, I'd much rather have Guitar Hero than a bikini any day!

I love the Paul Brand sense of humor! I wish I could have been there to see you on the scavenger hunt, and to see Paul's face through it all. Too funny!
