Each year I take it I vow that I will study extremely hard for it the next year. I usually walk out of the test saying "wow, that wasn't so bad. If had studied I would have done great." Let me just say that this is not a test that you just study the night before for. It would take months of preparation. Needless to say, being the procrastinator that I am I don't prepare in advance. It's difficult for me to prepare for something that seems soooo far away!
Anyway, I woke up early the morning of the test and tried to cram some facts in my brain. I "overstudied" (meaning I wasn't paying attention to the time and was almost late for the test). That would not have been good. I took the first part, had a break, then took the second part. Wait, I failed to mention is that I got a visit from mother nature during the first part of the test (which really sucked) and I was cramping so much during the second part.
When the test was over I could hardly wait to get home to see my honey. All I could think about was getting home and giving him a big hug. It's so good to have a way to de-stress after a challenging day. On my way home by husband text me to not stop to look around the house when I got home. He told me to go straight upstairs. I figure he had something up his sleeve but I didn't know what it was.
He arrived home and I was so happy to see him. When I got downstairs he showed me a huge can of popcorn. I got even happier. This was not just any popcorn. This was gourmet popcorn from Garrett's in Chicago. It is so good. We visited Chicago for the first time for a friend's wedding this past May and we overindulged in the popcorn. I don't even like popcorn that much but this is not your regular popcorn. We loved it so much we even brought some back (2 large bags) on the airplane with us.
I have been meaning to have my friend send us some and I drool every time I visit Garrett's website. I never got around to asking her (of course not, I'm a procrastinator and I'm forgetful). And I never ordered from their website because it's expensive including shipping. I remember my honey asking me a few weeks ago what I thought about him wasting $61 on something. I told him that it was fine especially since both of us work our butt's off. At the time I didn't know what he was buying.
I am so glad he got that popcorn. After a challenging day I had my favorite man and my favorite popcorn. What a great ending!
