Secret Secret Finally the Surprise!

So, I mentioned awhile back that I had a surprise for Tom that I couldn't mention. I couldn't even bring myself to write much because it was all I could think about and couldn't say a thing. So here's what happened:

More than a year ago, Tom's very best friend in the whole world who is practically family had moved away. It wasn't looking like it could be years before either of them would be able to make the trip happen to visit the other. So for Tom's birthday, I flew his friend out completely as a surprise. His friend arrived on Wednesday, and when Tom walked in the door from work, there he was just hanging out in our living room. Tom about fell over. His face just showed shock and the slow recognition and processing of what was going on. For the rest of the night, we all kind of chuckled at how weird (in a happy way) it all was. He'll be here for a couple of weeks, and I'll get some girl time for a change :)

I can't begin to express the agony that it was not to be able to say one word. You know when you find the perfect present for someone and you just can't wait for them to open it? It was like that but a huge-best-ever kind of present, and I had to wait over a month. Meanwhile, Tom would talk to his friend who also had to play it cool, and he'd mention sometimes how he wished they could hang out. All I could say is "maybe someday" as I counted the days and was bursting out of my skin. Whew! Glad all that's over...
