Surface 3, that is.
Well, I turned 28 on Sunday, and basically, it blew hard.
Saturday afternoon Evan threw out his back. We have no idea at all what he did to it. He said that while he traveled between stores, he got out of his car and something felt wrong. During the rest of the day it got worse. The plan was that we were going to go out to dinner Saturday night rather than Sunday since Sunday was Mother’s Day (did I forget to mention that every single time my birthday falls on Sunday it falls on Mother’s Day?); except when he came home Sunday evening, and he was crooked. He, being the stubborn man that he is, tried damn hard to get back out of bed: somehow he even got his clothes on – I actually had to convince him that he couldn’t make it!
Sunday morning, I had planned on going to church with my mother. Needless to say, that did not happen. Instead, I had to spend the morning driving Evan to Urgent Care. He had to hobble his way to and from the car, leaning on his walking stick from Mount Fuji. The doctor told him that his spine was s-shaped, prescribed him the fun drugs, and got him a doctor’s note to stay home from work for 3 days.
Until he went back to work Thursday, I almost killed him. I don’t mind taking care of him, and I know he’s (still today) in pain, but I didn’t realize how wearing it would be to have him home every minute of every day and in our bed basically for every minute of every day. Man, I almost killed him.
And then yesterday, when he came home, I was trying to take a short nap that was just not happening. When he came home, he crawled into bed with me and told me that we could go pick up my birthday gift. He bought me a Surface! When we were at Best Buy, he gave me an option: he’d buy me the Surface 3, or he’d put $500 towards a Surface Pro 3. After some hemming and hawing I decided on the Surface. I have a desktop – this will be more supplemental.
Anyway, I have a Surface. I named it Tension because I’m a clever sonnofabitch. So this is me, coming to you from my Surface, for the very first time, but it definitely won’t be the last.
