So you know how some people like the element of surprise and some people actually like surprises? Surprises have always made me a very nervous birdie especially if I know folks are planning something but they won’t tell me. I don’t like crowds so surprises can also go very wrong real quick with me if i feel embarrassed or on on display so to speak.
Somehow I have found out about every major surprise before it happens. My wedding proposal was not a surprise, neither of my bridal showers were surprises. The NY one I had to act surprised though because my 5 year old awesome nephew knew about it and even helped decorate and his yelling suprise made me remember to act surprised…and he was impressed that i was surprised. Ok my traditional wedding decor was a surprise. ..but not the event itself…the Lago shower they had to tell me because you can’t trust me to show up on time or even at all for an event – i could have easily been sitting at my Chinese spot on saka tinubu eating chinese hotpot…all alone…
My husband has only managed to surprise me once i think in the 2 years total we have been together. He gave me a ticket from Lagos to NY but it was for April 1st so you know me amd my crazy self i went online to make sure the reference number was valid as per april fool happenings. I was so sick after the surprise because I couldn’t hide my excitement. …I always get very happy going to America – even if you buy me a ticket for cargo space I will bounce off the walls like a child drugged up on sugar and its far from my first time. I think NY just feels very homish – neutral.
So I have managed to act through many “suhpra-eyez” events in the last few years and I am wondering if it makes me a fraud? I know my husband was offended the day he proposed because I asked him why he wore shiny shoes and a silk shirt to dinner – if he was going to propose? He told me to wear heels…if you know me- i am the kind of person that can wear an evening gown and put fancy flat slippers on..why i don’t know. I refuse to wear heels unless to weddings or for work. He says I killed the surprise. …i also guessed how much the ring cost him and all my Cs for my diamonds. I had also sent a vey good friend of mine a message about 30 minutes before dinner that he was going to propose.
I am starting to wonder if this acting makes me a fraud…my husband is currently planning a surprise – so it seems – he has not told me, but I feel it based on him asking about my workload….i sense a vacation is in the works and I know his preferred destinations – so when he does give me the suprise – i have to be like “OMIGOSH ….you are totally awesome babe”. Because if I say thank you and move on there will be no surprises in the future. Kai but the things we do in situation-ships to make everyone feel good.
I know my nephew was so stoked about being able to surprise me. Mr. Pynk complains about me being hard to surprise! Please I need honest opinions- does acting surprised make me a fraud? I mean its a win win right? Do you have such conflicts emotionally?
