I went home yesterday for a little while and then realized there was nothing to eat, so I went to Chili's and got a Caribbean Pita. I was craving that and french fries all day. I've never been so excited to eat anything.

I tried to find a birthday present for Lisa, but I couldn't find anything that I thought she'd really like. So, as I was putting her clothes away that I borrowed I just kept cleaning until I took EVERYTHING off her floor, vacuumed, washed her sheets and pillowcases and even rearranged her (or some of her) pictures on the wall. She'll be happy. I hate coming home to a messy room after vacation. It wasn't until I was done that I noticed her computer's screensaver said, "Don't move anything."

So did she get mad?

Maria said...

Seriously? Rearranging photos on the wall? Wow.

SRA said...

:) How could she get mad when you did something so thoughtful for her?

Steph said...

That's hilarious! See you should never doing anything nice.....that's the lesson we can all learn from this story.

Hey Laura! I found your blog through Maria's. I love it!

Ilene: No, she was grateful. I don’t think that’s what she meant by her screen’s marquee message. But the irony was hilarious.

Maria: Oh I’m serious. I went all out, but I wouldn’t dare do that for anyone but Lisa. One must be discerning with their subjects; some people wouldn’t appreciate it, obviously.

i wasn't mad then, and I'm not mad now. Why would I leave a mean comment? I remember that and did appreciate. Retrospectively I have no idea why I'd set that as my screensaver.
