I like surprises, but if I found out ahead of time that I have a surprise coming, I can't stand it. I always have to try to find out what the surprise is. I end up ruining my surprise because I won't let it rest until I know what the surprise is. Last week my husband told me he was planning something for Valentine's day, but wouldn't tell me what it was. I eventually forced him to tell me that he was planning a romantic dinner at home, so I told him not to do that. So then he started coming up with other ideas. He called me on Saturday and told me not to look at our online bank account for a few days or else I might ruin another surprise. So of course I couldn't let it be. I kept telling him to tell me what it was, and told him I'd get mad if he didn't. Eventually he broke down and told me that he arranged to have flowers delivered to me at work. When the flowers arrived at work I wished he hadn't told me. They were very nice.. a dozen red roses in a red vase. But of course I'd been expecting them and waiting for them. It would have been so much nicer if I hadn't known, and I told him that. But I can't help myself. I don't like waiting to find out what my surprises are. If I know about it, I want to know what it is. I told him it's partly his fault too. He should have found another way to pay for them so he wouldn't have to tell me not to look at our bank account. Then I never would have known he was planning something and it would have been a surprise. Do you like surprises. If someone tells you they're going to surprise you, do you want to know right away what the surprise is or can you wait?
