It’s two weeks until King Russell’s birthday.
I bought his present – an expensive but brilliant Star Wars Storm Trooper cap – about two months ago. He loves Star Wars and has lots of clothing featuring characters from the films. A particular favourite of his is a Storm Trooper t-shirt that he wears regularly. Every time he’s worn it recently I’ve ticced, “I’ve bought you a…” Up until now I’ve been able to stop myself saying anything more. Today I completed the sentence with “…hat.”
I’m not sure how I’m going to maintain the surprise until his birthday. Fortunately I also ticced:
“I’ve bought you a helicopter.”
“I’ve got you a standing ovation for Christmas.”
“I’ve got you an ovarian cyst.”
Hopefully he’ll have no idea which is the real gift.
