I'm getting a package!

Well, my Dad has gone and done it again! He is always sending me something in the mail and then hinting about it on accident "So honey, did you get any mail today" "No Dad - why - should I be??" "Oops...oh crap, No. You're not...don't tell your mom I mentioned anything"

Well, with my birthday coming up, it appears that they mailed a little something to me a week+ ago to my work here. I should have gotten it yesterday, but with it being a holiday and all, I did not go into work! Not a problem - they were good about not saying anything! I get home from some errands today to find a nice little card in my mailbox at my apartment that was mailed out 4 days ago (wow - that was quick) and this time my Dad slipped in the card! He never expected that I would receive the card first, so he had written "Hope you received your care package and enjoyed it! We just thought it would be something different" I gave a little chuckle of glee and phoned him, waking him up in the process here is our conversation...

"Hhheello" Dad in a raspy 'I'm still sleeping' voice
"Morning Dad - thanks for the card" Me in a 'I'm gonna get you good' voice
"Huh....you got a card" Dad in a confused 'What is she talking about' voice
"Uh huh. I got my birthday card in the mail. I guess I'm getting a package to eh?"
. . . . . "Shit. Its your daughter" Long pause as he thinks about what he wrote...A short exclamation, and then the sound of him handing the phone to my mom.
"Morning honey...whats wrong?" Mom in a 'worried tone'
"Nothings wrong mom. I'm just calling to say thanks for the birthday card and to let Dad know that I've not received the package yet that he mentioned in the card" Me in a gleeful 'he is sooooo busted' voice
"Bernie!!!!!! Sorry honey it was supposed to be a surprise!" Mom scolding my Dad and apologizing

What a great start to my birthday weekend....I know that I have a package waiting at work for me on Monday which is my actual birthday!!! I'm going to be an old 27....I always thought that I would be married with 2.2 kids by now!

Thanks Mom and Dad - love ya both!! *hugs*

Hi Princess
Well thats right I'm taking your Mom out for your Birthday. Since it is for your Birthday shouldn't cost me too much, I mean how much can Burger King cost?? Being a finance major, I'm sure you would agree with my choice. The more I have to spend on my Daughter when she gets home. I'm very proud to have you for my Daughter and cherish each and every one of your birthdays.
Love Always
DAD
