A Surprise


I first saw it about two months ago. The Milly Emilie dress, known here as the Milly Beetle Dress. I longed for it, but alas, it was too pricey. I stalked Mint Julep (fortunately there is one in my neighborhood), always afraid that someone would purchase the dress. My dress. The Friday before the Fourth I popped into the shop again, noting that there was only one left in all the stores in my size. Gasp! I tried it on, and, of course, it fit perfectly and looked beautiful. I was texting with Mr. BF, and our conversation went something like this:

Mr. BF: What do you want to do for dinner tonight?
Me: I want to buy this dress even if it means I can't afford to eat for a week. It's so pretty! Argh, I have to take it off now - quickly! Before it latches on to my body!


I took the dress off, said my goodbyes, and walked out the door. I met Mr. BF around the corner, sighing at the loss of my dress. He told me he had some errands to run before dinner, so I decided to use the time to get a pedicure.

A few minutes later I was in the salon, feet in water, when - quite suddenly- some man looking suspiciously like Mr. BF entered and plopped a Mint Julep bag down next to me. He pivoted and strode right out, without saying a word. I picked up the bag, and, you won't believe it (well, you will, because you see me wearing it here) but the dress was inside! I couldn't run after him - a woman was scrubbing my feet! I frantically picked up the phone and called repeatedly. Finally I noticed he was standing outside the salon peeking in at me. "The look on your face right now is priceless", he said. "Totally worth it". 


So thank you, thank you, thank you, to my wonderful Mr. BF - you are the best husband a woman could have, and not just because you surprised me with a pretty dress (though that doesn't hurt). Meet you on the balcony tonight for mojitos?
