Braggart

I'd like to take this moment to brag on Alex, the best boyfriend of all time. (I'm working on getting that trademarked, by the way. I could do something obnoxious like, every time I refer to him, I'll write, "Alex, tbboat tm. That won't make him want to poke his eyes out AT ALL.)

Friday, he showed up at work with flowers and lunch. Which is adorable, but I kinda already knew about it, what with the post-Valentine's, let's make up for no delivery during a snow day thing. So he showed up and everyone seemed to go into a tizzy in the front office, like they've never seen a handsome redhead before. I felt a little guilty parading him around like a hunk of meat and so I didn't introduce him to anyone. (Which was a bad idea because I was then barraged with questions after he left. So in order to make my life easer, I'm going to throw him to the wolves on his own next time. Love you baby!) So I basically ran him in and out of the office as quickly as possible, like we were avoiding paparazzi or something. I should have thrown a blanket over his head. Or maybe shaved his head. (Oh, BRITNEY.) But then he told me that he had left his credit card in my car from our previous night's jaunt to the best Italian restaurant ever. So, despite his many protests, I walked him out to my car, where he practically shoved me back towards the building and told me he'd lock the car after he was done hunting for his plastic money. I didn't think anything of this because Alex is one of those people who loses things often. He just has so many genuis thoughts running through his head that he doesn't have the time or energy to worry about things like his wallet or cell phone. Who cares if he left them under the ottoman in the basement? He'll find them eventually!

Fast forward to 4:30-ish when I got off of work. I walked out to my car wishing that I was on a tropical island that had never seen snow before and opened my car door to find a heart-shaped box of chocolates and a teddy bear in the front seat. Yes, he IS that adorable folks.

And yes, he does love Justin Timberlake more than me and is VERY excited about seeing him tomorrow night.

Awww, he sounds so sweet! And how was JT? I'm jealous. Although, I guess I have seen him twice, just not since he went solo. :)
