As you may or may not know, I turned 55 last Friday. I wasn’t into having a big celebration or anything so I simply went down to Duke to have lunch with Andie. Kevin and I aren’t really into a big production but to my surprise he did get me a gift.
He got me a week at a spa and set it up for the week after Labor Day. I was pretty excited about that and a bit surprised. Meanwhile, my sister-in-law Tessa picked up a pretty floral arrangement and dropped it off at my house. It was quite nice.
Imagine my surprise when, on Saturday, the doorbell rang and there was a delivery guy at my door. I opened the door and he handed me a “strange” arrangement. I say strange because there was a teddy bear made out of carnations and some other paraphernalia on it. This isn’t the type of arrangement I ever get and trust me, I get very few flower arrangements.
Here’s what it looked like:
Now Kevin was working out but I opened the card and it said the following:
I read it and though “what the fuck” because Kevin and I don’t really speak to each other like that. I mean, we’re not really that sappy and that isn’t really the type of arrangement I like so I was a bit flummoxed.
I forgot about it and later Kevin and I were floating in the pool and I said:
Me: so I was surprised about the flower arrangement you sent
Kevin: what flower arrangement?
Me: the teddy bear/carnation one that I just got
Kevin: I didn’t send you flowers
And then he burst out laughing and says one word: WALT!
Kevin: OMG… Walt loves to do that to you
And it’s true. Walt is Kevin’s second-in-command and he’s done it once before. He once sent me roses on Valentine’s Day “FROM KEVIN” of course, and wrote a sappy note that time too.
He loves to make fun of Kevin and this time he decided to send flowers and a sappy note “FROM KEVIN” and of course, it was terribly funny.
Do you guys have a Walt in your life?
You need to. Also, now I’m definitely going to play this game too. Game on Walt!! Can’t wait for your wife to start hearing from me!!!
