Date Night: The Gift of the Magi

On Friday morning, I began thinking about what Devon and I should do for Date Night.  I knew I wasn’t going to see him until 6:00 because he had a lot of studying to do and then he was going to take a test from 3:00 to 6:00pm.  So. . . I had a lot of time to think.

I was having a rough day, but I tried to think of what Devon would most enjoy after finishing his test.  I concluded with a brilliant idea.  I decided to rent the Lion King, Devon’s favorite movie, from the library and surprise him.

And so I went to the library after my class, feeling rather pleased, rented the movie and waited for Devon to finish.  At 6:17pm, he called.  I asked him how the test went and he was rather upset about it.  He said it was awful and wasn’t feeling so great.  I eagerly responded,

P: “Would you like to watch Lion King?”

D: “What about Singin’ in the Rain?” [my favorite movie]

P: “Well. . . I already borrowed Lion King from the library.”

D: “Guess where I am right now?”

Independently, Devon had decided that it would be great to borrow my favorite movie from the library for date night.  It was hilarious.  I giggled about it for the rest of the night.

It reminded me of that Christmas short story, “The Gift of the Magi” by O. Henry.   (What do you think?)
