WHEEEE!!! It’s official…. Valentines Day is now my favorite Holiday…. ever!!
My sweetheart Carolyn lived up to her promise and surprised yours truly with the sneakiest bit of “ninja girlfriend” action I’ve ever experienced in my whole life. After the last couple of days, Your Favorite Catgirl let her guard down…. expecting that maybe I’d get a nice “night out” some evening as my sweetie’s way of trying to reward me for my Valentines Day gift to her…. but it was then that she decided to strike… when I was least expecting it. The cunning sneak!! 😉
Wanna here what super romantic way she decided to reward lil’ ol’ me? Then you have to hurry up and “Read On”…. silly!!
Now… it was a given that Carolyn would have to wrack her brain for some way to try and even the score… romance wise… after my big Valentines Day display of gratuitous love and affection. The only question was…. exactly what was she going to get up to…. and when?
After 3 days, I was beginning to think she’d decided to put it off till she could do something big and extravagant… and nobody likes “big and extravagant” like she does…. So I let my guard down figuring she’d get around to something nice…. eventually. That is, until I woke my groggy lil’ butt up this morning, that is….
On Saturday, yours truly usually gets to sleep in before having to work later in the afternoon…. luxuriating in the simple joy of gently waking up in a warm cozy bed all snuggled in close with Carolyn who doesn’t have to work Saturdays at all. But not today.
Instead I was roused from slumber by the smell of cocoa and bacon and the scent of toast wafting into the bedroom from our lil’ kitchen. As I woke… I instinctively swept my arm under the covers to find Carolyn missing and it took sleepy lil’ me a minute or so to figure the obvious connection between the wonderful smells of breakfast and her absence. As I sat up, trying hard to shake off the last dreamy vestiges of sleep, I suddenly became aware of a funny sensation on my left hand. Raising it up before my bleary eyes, what greeted me but the sudden unexpected appearance of a ring on my finger!!
Not just any ring mind you…. but the most delightful little sliver band in the form of a cat with chips of green tourmaline for eyes! Soooo… darn… cute!! And somehow…. in the middle of the night…. my sneaky lil’ sweetie had managed to ever so carefully slip it on my finger…. all without waking me. She must have worked at it forever… cuddled in close in the dark… just to surprise me with it this morning!!
“Finally up, eh?” she said from the doorway… a tray of breakfast goodies arranged with cups of steaming cocoa… “I guess I can turn the fan off then! I never thought you were going to wake up…. I was so close to just tossing Ting-ting in on the bed to get you moving, you lazy butt.”
She sat down on the bed with a sly smile and slid the tray to one side while slipping her hand into mine to run her fingers along the ring and asked ” You like it?”, before slipping in for a lingering kiss, “Happy anniversary, Miyu… I just want you to know how much I hope you’ll always want to be my special “kitten”, now and forever.”
What could I say? All I could do was give her the most incredible hug and nearly knocked our breakfast all over the bed with the exuberance of my happiness making my heart pound with the intensity of my feelings for her. She’s my precious angel… and always will be.
We spent the morning eating her breakfast surprise (which was actually pretty good too mind you…) while she gloated over the details of her late night “belling of the cat”. Seems it did indeed take quite a while for her to pull off, as she carefully removed the ring from it’s hiding place beneath her pillow… spent an agonizing hour gently slipping it into place on my finger… coaxing me back to sleep every time she nearly woke me up with soft back rubs and little snuggles and kisses. Apparently at one point I even woke up and started mumbling something to her, but I don’t really remember it… Oh yes indeed, “ninja girlfriend’s” kung-fu is strong, o’ grasshopper… 😉
Well…. I know it’s a bit early for another “Diary” entry here at the ol’ Litterbox, but I just had to share this one with you, Gentle Visitors…. I hope you don’t mind the extra silly gushing on my part this week, but I just couldn’t keep it all inside. (I’m pretty sure I’d have exploded into a big cloud of confetti if I’d nave tried….. 😉
Not to worry, this goofy Catgirl is going to get back soon with another review especially given that Malaysia has dropped another big package in my mailbox today too. So…. until my next day off on Monday, I leave you with another heart felt “Meow, meow, for now!!”
