Husband of the Year Award

J is definitely in the running. :) We use gchat during the day to chit chat. Sometimes (read most) I get irritated when he doesn't let me know he'll be offline for awhile. After his lunch break yesterday he was offline for an hour or so...when he did say hello I replied with "didn't realize you'd be busy after lunch"...he said I looked tired and did I want some iced coffee. I said "nope...still trying to keep the caffeine consumption down"...imagine my surprise when he said "Well, I have an iced coffee for you..drink half?" I asked where he was and he said watching me...I checked the windows, no one was at the front door of the office. He IM'd that I looked the wrong way...I finally got up to check the door and there he was standing there with a DUNKIN DONUT'S iced coffee. Why the caps?? There are only 2 Dunkins here in San Antonio...one on the wrong side of security at the airport and one on "the other side" of town. He went to the ghetto to get me coffee. :) J said he wanted to do something special for me that wasn't flowers. Iced coffee was more than special. OMG - was it amazing!! I was so hyper afterwards!! I talked to my mom on my ride home from work and she commented on how I sounded better. I said it was the caffeine talking. J noticed I was a bit hyper when I got home too and didn't mind at all. :)

    1. Definitely a keeper - not letting him go anywhere!

  2. Unless you've lived in New England (with a D&D on every corner and a D&D iced coffee everyday) you can't understand the magnitude of a D&D surprise. Your husband just got an A+++ in my book!

    I unfortunately don't even have the option of getting one of those where I live, HOWEVER T-minus 29 days 'til my flight back to Boston. Can you guess my first stop? :)

  3. That was very sweet indeed! I love iced coffee although I've never had it from Dunkin Donuts. I'm sure there is one here in Ottawa, I just don't know where. Can you get ketchup chips in Texas?

    1. Ooh, ketchup chips? I don't think we have them down here...

  4. That is a freaking AWESOME husband. I suspect this is going to cause many-a-woman to flick her husband in the face and say 'why can't you be more like that?'

  7. What a sweetheart! So heartwarming.

    And if DD iced coffee is so good, I'll have to add it to my list of things to try - there aren't many where I come from in the US, but I usually have a connection at DFW, and I know it's there!
