I totally got Joe today. I have never "gotten" Joe. Ever.
I planned earlier this week to surprise him by taking today off. I didn't tell a soul in my house. I arranged to have Nana pick up the girls so we would not have to rush home. I had several ideas to choose from and I told my co-workers to tell him I ran an errand if he called me at the office before 9am, the appointed surpise hour.
I got up, showered and left as usual so I wouldn't give any secrets away. It was a long hour before I could come home and surprise him. I got a cup of coffee, read the paper and went to the Dollar Store to pick up some stuff and waited.
I was in the house when he walked in from taking CassiJo to school. He had a sick look on his face. He HAD called and was told I had "stepped away from her desk". When he saw my car at home he panicked and thought something was wrong.
"SURPRISE!!" I squealed. "I took the day off!!"
He was totally speechless.
It took him about 20 minutes to calm down.
He doesn't do surprises well. (Next time I think I'll give him a heads up.)
I totally caught him off guard and surprised him.........now we are off for a surpise day trip. :0) Who knows where we will end up!
Aunt Jo, The Surpriser
Over and outta heeeeeere!!
