Flowers arrived yesterday at my office. I thought they were another shipment of cookies from a vendor that's been stalking me for the last month.
The note read:
"Surprise lover! Bet you didn't expect this. Maybe we'll head up to Canada for the weekend. I heard you can see Russia from there."
Maybe I should back up and share my crazy antics so it makes sense to you. (Even though with a lot of explanation it still won't.)
While watching Rocky IV (my fav one) as Rocky gets to Russia and that house he stays in, I explain how much I love this part.
Me: "oooooohhh. This is my favorite part. Yes!! I love Russia."
BF: "You love Russia?"
Me: "Well, no, but I love when he gets here and he starts the hardcore training."
Me: In my best Tina Fey imitating Sarah Palin voice, "You can see Russia from Canada."
BF: "You can't see Russia from Canada."
Me: "Yes you can," still in that Tina Fey imitation voice.
A few minutes later...
Me: "Is Russia over Japan?" A moment of silence. Answer my own question, "Yep, I think it is."
BF: Clearly getting agitated because I've ruined Rocky IV now, "Allison, Russia is a huge country, it's not just over Japan, it's over MANY countries."
Me: "Yes, I understand that but I believe it's specifically over Japan as well."
Our conversation must've been bothering him because the next day he sent me a map of that general area to prove to me where Russia's exact location was.
Then he pointed out that you can't see it from Canada but probably Alaska.
HOLY crap! I was imitating Tina Fey imitating Sarah Palin but saying the wrong country!
So, after he points out to me where Russia is and the fact you can see it from Alaska versus Canada (I meant that way the whole time), he closed the conversation with this.
"For the love of GOD....you are a unique individual! I sometimes wonder if there’s another one of you walking this earth making some other poor schmuck bat-shit crazy from conversations like this!!"
Bringing me to the shipment of lillies on my desk.
