i got a call yesterday from ryan. he was driving to ohio for a work appointment and i couldn't answer right when he called, so he left me a message. this caught me off guard because he never leaves messages for anyone. i was immediately concerned and listened to his message. thankfully, it just said that he saw something on his drive that made him think of me. he said to call him to find out what it was.
"oh how sweet!", i thought. in my mind, i was imagining that he probably saw something like a brightly colored patch of wildflowers or a pretty rainbow or something that reminded him so sweetly of me. *humble of me, huh?*
nope. it was none of those things!
i called him to find out what it was that made him think of me on a long morning drive to ohio. his response: a box van driving down the expressway with the back doors flung open. *hmmmm...ok, not really what i was expecting.*
he then went on to tell me that he tried to speed up to get a closer look because he was worried that the person didn't realize the doors were open or something. however, as he got closer, he realized that the open doors were very intentional. in fact, he could see a large group of men outfitted in all black, swat uniforms toting some pretty large guns. he quickly backed off his speeding and called me.
to some, this may seem strange but to me, it made me not only laugh but also reminded me how much my husband really does know me! i guess he's been paying attention to large number of real-life cop shows that i frequently watch or record to our dvr receiver: swat, cops, policewomen of broward county just to name a few. according to ryan, i must love these shows because i'm nosy or something!! either way, ryan's thoughtfulness made me smile and put me in a good mood for the rest of the morning.
after his full explanation, my only question was why he didn't follow them to the action :)
