- my fiancé is such a RAT!!
It seems he wanted to teach me a lesson about my enthusiastic, gleeful presumption regarding a certain perfume I've been wanting for a while, Une Rose
. We both love it and he's even asked about it lately; didn't I still like it and was I going to be getting it soon, and why am I messing with all these other rose perfumes when I've found the best one, etc, etc. So you see my side, right? Naturally
, I figured I'd be getting it for my birthday, which was Tuesday.
Well, I should have kept my yap shut but I couldn't help myself. I kept talking and talking about it and even reading 30 Roses'
posts about it to him "Oh, she's wearing it again today! Lucky girl - I bet she smells divine! I can't wait to wear mine...we'll be scent-twins, tee hee hee!" I'm such a child when it comes to birthdays and presents. Anyway, I certainly would have reported to you that I was wearing Une Rose yesterday morning had I actually received it for my birthday, but clearly I did not! Pooh!
It took extraordinary effort to refrain from asking where the rest of my present was when given beautiful flowers and chocolates, but I managed. As far as he could see I was thrilled and not disappointed in the least...but I was
disappointed, and also a bit confused. Had he forgotten? Am I actually not
getting Une Rose for my birthday?? How can this be???
Cut to a couple of hours ago - he called from work and asked me if I would take a couple of shirts to the cleaners (which was an odd request since I go once a week and he never pays any attention to this stuff, anyway...) and what do you think I found underneath these shirts but a beautifully wrapped present with my name on it, and my very own bottle of Une Rose
inside - Yaaahoooooo!!!
He was going to give it to me last night figuring that one day late was lesson enough, but he forgot! So rather than make me wait until tonight, he let me off the hook and lead me right to it! He's still a rat to be sure, but he's just such a cute, sweet and generous rat! ♥
My scent of the afternoon is Frederic Malle's dazzling, intoxicating Une Rose
