Finally! Someone Who Thinks I'm God's Gift To Man

A few days ago, on his birthday, Eddie and I were talking about gifts when he said to me, "Well, you're my gift. I even told that to your Mom."

"Told my Mom what?"

"That you're my gift from God." he said.

"You told my mother I was your gift from God???"

"Yeah. I told her that since I had been through a lot in my life and worked really hard to get where I am, I feel like God brought you to me."

Just as I started to cry, he said "I'd say you were just a gift, but you're also a pain in the ass. That's how I know you're from God."

"Why would God give you a gift that's a pain in the ass?" I asked.

"That's how God works," he said, "He just doesn't say 'here's a gift and it's perfect', he says 'here's a rose, but it has thorns' and 'here's a really cute animal, but he might bite you' or even, 'here's a cure for your disease, but you're going to die in three years anyway.'"

"That's how God works, huh?"

"Yeah. You didn't know that?"

Uh, I guess not. But what do I care? I have a man who thinks I'm God's Gift.
