why i feel like the kid from a christmas story

remember how he wanted the red rider bb gun thing and he would say it really fast and his parents would be like... "but ralphie, you'll shoot your eye out!!!!"

well i feel like him cause for once in my freaking life, i actually know what i want for my birthday!!!!! i'm the worst. boyfriend always asks what i want for my birthday and for christmas and i always reply with "i don't know.." cause i really don't. i mean, when i want something, i don't normally wait for a fucking holiday to get it. i buy it myself. cause i have no patience and well, when i want something- i want it. (we can all thank my father for that trait) so when it comes down to a gift giving time, i never know what i want. i have everything. or if there is something i want, hell if i can remember what it is. this is why boyfriend should take notes. like when we walk somewhere and i go "oooh, i like that! i want it!!!" he can buy it... and i'll be excited! not only cause he got me that, but because i'll also have forgotten that i liked it and wanted it in the first place, so it will be like a double treat! i mean, that's what girls do. guys casually mention wanting something or liking it- next thing you know, they have it. why? cause we're awesome.

so this year. i know what i want. i finally give boyfriend a detailed description of the perfect gift.. i want a 7-speed raleigh beach cruiser with white wall tires (i really wanted the mint green, but it comes with a brown seat and brown on part of it and i don't like the way it looks.. so then i really wanted the yellow, but i'm not sure they even make yellow. my sister said they did, but i can't find a picture of a yellow one anywhere, so i think she may have been lying to make me cry. you know how big sisters are. so i'm going to have to copy my neice and get the blue and white one which goes against everything i am because i hate copying anyone with anything and i loathe being copied.... *sighs*)!! so i tell him what i want. down to the color. and he questions me on it! "are you sure?" "my sister said that we can get you one that you can trick out and detail just the way you want for the same price." and i'm like dude- i don't want to "trick out" my bike. i just told you what i wanted. you complain all these years that i never know what i want, and now that i know exactly what i want, you try to talk me out of it?! i can't win here!!




ps- i know boyfriend is just trying to be super sweet and helpful and give me lots of options. but this post is far more fun if i pretend to not acknowledge that part of things and just bitch.

I'm rooting for you. There's a 2009 gold with cream on their site by the way.

This bike isn't the Pee-Wee Herman bike, right? Either way, I liked his and the one from the link.

Ooooh, how about pink?? :) I had a beach cruiser once upon a time. They're fun!

Chris said...

I say you go for the gold one with cream! Or the yellow. Don't forget to get a matching helmet. OK, just kidding about the matching part, but not the helmet. ;)

Oh, and I have a little something for you . . .

Am I doing okay? said...

I want one too! What's w/ the pricing? $$? I hope that means it is 2 dollars. But I think no. I'm curious where the old town/old school was.
