With all the chaos going on in our lives, I just recently told you that I wouldn’t be able to get my designated “birthday present” for a little while.
J knows that I want the DSLR really badly. Even though it is a pretty expensive little toy, I know he would like to go out and buy it for me in a heartbeat.
Unfortunately, with no income of his own, he can’t do that right now.
We do have a little bit of savings and I could probably scrape money together to get it right away as I had planned after my birthday. But with all the crazy stuff going on in our lives, I decided to wait. We did have some unexpected expenses and I am too much of a “security freak” to spend most of our savings on something that I desperately want, but do not really need right now.
I have a nearly brandnew point-and-shoot-camera [which I picked up yesterday. Yay!] and a high-end video camera with photo mode. I really can’t complain, but J obviously thinks that I still deserve my wish to be granted.
So what does a desperate man do?
He offhandedly decides to sell one of his reverb amplifiers [of which he has three].
Now, that might not seem like a big deal to you, but let me assure you, that is a very big deal for J. Selling one of the amps means that he is finally letting go of “What Generation”.
Don’t get me wrong – he still wants to sing and find a band, but he finally realizes that it won’t happen with A and that there is no reason for him to keep three guitar amplifiers.
After he sold it, he put the money in an envelope, wrote “Banne’s camera” on it [that’s my nickname – don’t ask me where it came from :)] and handed it to me with a big smile of satisfaction on his face.
I was flabbergasted not having expected anything like this.
If this isn’t love, I don’t know what is…
