Ash turned 30 this year, and for his super grown-up birthday, I bought him the best present in the entire world. I got him the Ghostbusters toy firehouse! I had been looking for one that I could afford for a few years, but I was highly motivated to find one for his birthday. I managed to snag one in an online auction during the summer, but I had to hide it for about two months so I wouldn’t ruin the surprise. I also bought Ash several Ghostbusters action figures.
|Yes, this pole still works.|
On his birthday, I wrapped up each of the Ghostbusters dolls individually, but only gave those to him. After he opened all of his little boxes, I did the “Oh no, I forgot to give you one of your presents” shtick. As soon as I left the room to retrieve his big gift, he knew what I got him. So, all my careful crafting and conniving was for nothing, but at least he appreciated the gift! The only problem is that I’ll never be able to get him a better present. Let’s hope he doesn’t get too disappointed next year!
