My phone rings. Oh! It's "Nick"!
"Hey! What's up?"
Nick: "I'm in your house."
Me: "Um ok. I know you have a key. What are you doing?"
Nick: "I'm dropping off some stuff. Do I need to reset the alarm?"
Me: "No, it's fine. Don't worry about the alarm."
Nick: "So...(in a sultry voice)...do you want me to leave you a present while I'm here?"
Me: "Yes, yes I do."
Nick: "Oh. I guess I kinda backed myself into a corner on that one."
Me: "You suuure did. I'm looking forward to whatever you come up with."
Nick: "Well ok, I'm about to get creative. Talk to you later."
Twenty minutes later...phone rings again.
Me: "Hey there"
Nick: "Ok, I left you a surprise. But you're gonna have to go looking for it."
Me: "Um ok, will it be easy to identify?"
Nick: "Yes, you'll know it's from me. Oh and I should tell you, it's not exactly Baptist-approved."
Me: "I'm nervous."
Nick: "You'll like it. See you soon."
