So, from the truck, we unloaded the laundry, a full duffel bag, my laptop and the fifteen coconuts we've been toting around for two weeks. I hopped in the car and we pulled out into traffic, just ahead of Ed. We eventually met up at the first traffic light.
I looked over and saw Ed with a huge smile on his face, looking over at me. I thought, how sweet. Then, he rolled down his window. I did the same. I figured he was going to shout over at me a goodbye and an "I love you!" before heading off to Phoenix, but then I saw him pumping his fists in the air, as if he was cheering. And he was yelling. What the hell?? Then I heard him.
He was yelling, "I'm free!! I'm free!!"
Later in the evening, after I was full from a delicious meal my mother made and lounging in front of the TV, I got a text from him.
"FREE!! FREE AT LAST! PRAISE THE LORD I'M FREE AT LAST!"
And yes, it was all in caps. A minute later, another text. "Yumm Yumm Yumm. Sausage and peppers!" (the ones I made for lunch!) and then, "OK, I am tired of being free already."
I texted back, "You are too cute!" And then a thought hit me and I sent another text, "Wait...do you mean cause I'm not there to serve you dinner???"
He replied with a very cute text, basically saying "Ha Ha! No silly! You Silly Willy Nilly Dilly You!"
OK, not basically. That's what he actually said. So it wasn't just the amazing sausage and peppers on the crusty French bread...he missed me!
