The doorbell rang at around 12.30 today. I hurriedly changed from shorts to pyjamas, put on a sweater over my sleeveless blouse and opened the door... surprise! He (or she) was no longer there. I was wondering who it was when the phone rang. It was Janne (my boyfriend) informing me that I need to go out because Mr. Postman was waiting for me outside holding a surprise box for me. Oh wow! I ran outside and said, "Hello" with a huge grin on my giggling face (brain was asking, "What's the surprise? What's the surprise? What's the surprise?").
Mr. Postman handed me two packages. One was my boyfriend's gift for him for Christmas, a hooded StarWars Sweatshirt by Marc Ecko (super late but at least it arrived) and the other was my new laptop, a Sony VAIO!
I hadn't have any clue whatsoever that my boyfriend ordered online a Sony VAIO for me a week ago. We went to his mom's place last Saturday and I overheard Janne telling Mamma Lena about his Sony VAIO purchase for me. "Aha!", I told him with a happy face which was followed by, "Thank you, Bebe."
Although the whole Sony VAIO surprise was no longer a surprise, I wasn't expecting the new laptop to be delivered today (which was the surprise). I was glad that I stayed home today otherwise we would have to pay extra to have it (and my boyfriend's sweatshirt) delivered another day.
Well of course --- I was so excited to see and feel the laptop. I called my boyfriend first to thank him. He knew that I was so eager to open the box which was why he told me to go on with it and start using the VAIO. It took me minutes to finally gather the courage to push the start button (I was so scared to do something wrong and destroy the laptop with my carelessness) and when I could already feel the force of "just do it!", I had the laptop going and everything went smoothly. Woo Hoo!!!
... And yes. I am tapping my Sony VAIO's keyboard right now! I love this one! So cool!
