So Confused

The Redhead says she loves surprises. So, yesterday, as we cuddled on the couch and were watching—somewhat confusedly—American Horror Story, I decided to give her a little surprise. I turned to her lovingly and yelled “Boo!” She was very surprised.

But I wouldn’t categorize her response as indicative of someone who ‘loves’ surprises. Relationships are so confusing sometimes. Moreover, this gives me pause to reconsider her birthday surprise. See, I gave my buddy an extra house key and told him to sneak in late at night dressed as a bloody killer clown, armed with a fake knife, and yell “You’re gonna die! So enjoy your 30th birthday!!!”
Perhaps this would not be the kind of surprise she is very fond of.

On running related news, I continue to run, but not fast.

Just make sure she shoots him with the fake gun.

Although your weird is now normal to me, I still think you are strange my dear. (And continue to love you, strangeness and all.)

P.S. Thank you for thinking better of this particular surprise. I might have broken up with you. Or at least made you sleep on the murder bed, not the couch cuz you'd like that too much.

As you reconsider, might I recommend this ( as a substitute?

BTW - It isn't relationships that are confusing. It is women.

You rock. I can't decide who is luckier, you or Red.
