“I need to take the Cruiser to work tomorrow. I’m driving a bunch of people to the UAW and it would look bad to show up in an Audi.”
“Ok, no problem.”
I think nothing of it and enjoy getting to take the Audi, even though I have to park out in the hinterlands at work because it’s not a Chrysler vehicle. Later he tells me he has to take the car in for two new tires, because the tread looks worn and one has a bulge in the side.
I get home, park, and walk toward the condo when a car suddenly starts up near me. I look around and don’t see anyone in the surrounding cars. “Is that MY car?” I don’t see any exhaust plume, but finally notice that the parking lights are on. Holy shit. He got me a remote starter for my car, something I’ve been wanting for years.
I walked in the house. “New tires huh? Bullshit!”
“Merry Christmas! But I really did get new tires too.”
I love my man. 😀
