World Of Lovecraft

| Romantic | November 2, 2012

(It’s been a very stressful week, with me working over 40 hours on top of the 20 hours I spend at school. To make things worse, my 3-year-old laptop is showing signs of dying, and I’ve lost a fair bit of homework to its random crashing. My boyfriend and I are at our local tech store on a rare afternoon off.)

Me: “Oh, man, look! They have that gaming mouse I’ve been looking at buying!”

Boyfriend: “Wow, that’s a nice one.”

Me: “It’s too bad it’s really expensive, and that we don’t play online games anymore.”

Boyfriend: *weird, mischievous tone* “Yeah…”

Me: “You’re plotting something, aren’t you?”

Boyfriend: *still in that same tone* “What would make you think that?”

Me: “Hmm.”

Boyfriend: “You’ll just have to wait and see!”

(A few days later, I’m at home, very stressed out. My boyfriend comes prancing into the room.)

Boyfriend: “I have a surprise for you!”

Me: “What is it?”

Boyfriend: “It’s a three-parter, okay? So you’ve got to be patient.”

Me: “Okay?”

(He goes into the closet and starts pulling things out of a plastic bag.)

Boyfriend: “Firstly, I know you’ve wanted this, so I got it for you!”

(He gives me the exact gaming mouse that I had seen earlier that week.)

Boyfriend: “Secondly, it would be pretty useless for you to have that mouse if we didn’t play our MMO together. So I bought us each the new expansion pack! You can finally roll your silly panda character!”

(He piles it on top of the mouse. My mouth is hanging open at this point, wondering what the ‘third part’ was.)

Boyfriend: “Finally, I know your computer has been dying, and I really want to run dungeons and raid with you, so I just went and bought you a new computer!”

(He holds out a brand new all-in-one desktop computer, and grins. I’m completely speechless as I stare at him.)

Boyfriend: “If you don’t like it, I have the receipt. We can always return it.”

Me: “To h*** with that, let’s plug this baby in and see what she can do!”
