A while back Eric told me that he really wanted a new guitar. He said I always ask him what he wants for his Birthday or Christmas and he could never think of anything...but this year he could, he would really like a new guitar. I of course jumped on it. I sent an e-mail out to my brother and my mom and we started talking about it. I asked Eric if there was a certain one he wanted, a style a color? He told me he didnt wan't anything that looked like it belonged in an 80's hair band. No crazy style. I asked if he would like it to be a certain color, he said he didnt care. So joking I said, "Sooo, Pink is cool?" He said..."Anything but Pink!" Well...that just wouldn't do! Who wouldnt love a pink guitar!! So, the weeks went by his Birthday got closer and since I never said anything more, he asumed that there was no new guitar in his future.
He was in OK for his birthday. He got home at about 10:30 that night. He was tired and had had a pretty crappy day. He had sit down at the computer to chat with our friend Paul (who knew what was going on) when I walked in the room with a guitar bag asking him "Hey Babe..Whats this?" He kinda looked at me and said "HOLY CRAP!" I handed it over and THIS IS WHAT HE OPENED....
The look on his face was priceless. He kinda looked at me like what the heck... and of course, I couldnt keep a smile off my face. I said.."What....Its Pink? Oh wait..." and ran out of the room to GET THIS....
When I walked in the room with a 2nd guitar bag I thought he was going to pass out. The look on his face was amazing! And when he saw his new guitar we was beaming. But then he looked at me and pointed at the Pink one and said..."But whats that?" LOL!! I explained that it was mine, and that I wanted my own guitar, but that it was a funny joke to play on him as well! He was even more excited that we now both have guitars to paly together.
It was a great night!
