This post illustrates just one of many, many reasons that I love my roommates. :)
So today I got home from campus and was in the middle of making lunch for myself when my roommate Jill came into the kitchen and said, "I have something for you." I couldn't imagine what it would be. If there had been some occasion close at hand (birthday, Christmas, etc.), I might have suspected more what was coming. As it was, I wondered if it was just a piece of mail or something more mundane. Then Jill put her hand in her coat pocket...and pulled out the "How to Train Your Dragon" soundtrack!!!!!
AHHHHHHH!!!! That basically describes my reaction. :) I was so excited I think I hugged Jill a total of five different times. I'm pretty sure she wasn't expecting that much. :) It was pretty similar to the reaction I gave my former roommate Allie when she gave me the Steven Sharp Nelson Christmas CD. I really like my music, okay? :)
But I'd been wanting the "How to Train Your Dragon" soundtrack for a long time, so I was super excited about it. Apparently Jill had been thinking for a couple of weeks that she wanted to get it for me, and then when she finally did get it, she didn't want to wait until Christmas to give it to me, so she gave it to me as a late birthday/early Christmas present. I'll go for that. :) Basically, I have awesome roommates, both past and present, and I love it! Love you, Jill and Allie!
