What Have You Done for Me Lately?!

       I'm not the most romantic person in the world. If you woo me with chocolates and flowers, it won't get you far.  My boyfriend, luckily, knows that.

      He's also well aware that I have a thing for cars so the other night he picked me up in a brand new Volkswagen Golf series 7 - a beautifully lowered 150 horse powers sitting on 17 inch rims. AND it was white. He arranged that it was ours for the night so we took it for a test drive and went to the movies. I opened the car door, sat on the suede seat and said: "I didn't know you were on Pimp My Ride!"
      I looked around and I saw a present sitting all innocently in the back seat. There's more to this surprise? Apparently so. It was my Christmas gift - three books of Jim Morrison's poetry. I used to worship Morrison. I made the bead necklace he wore for one of his shoots and worn it constantly. He died on the same date I was born on and for years I was convinced that I was his reincarnation. I know, I sound really messed up but the gift was simply perfect for a messed up human being like me. But that too wasn't all...
      He had another gift for me hidden behind the car seat. When we parked the car, I opened the box and inside was a bottle of home brewed herb liquor. I'm an aficionado for all things alcoholic so I was smiling ear to ear. Besides, nothing complements Morrison's poetry better than a bottle of booze. I put the box away and he said: "Are you sure that's empty?" I was sure, but I was wrong. He made a false bottom, a hidden compartment, in which he hid another present. I know what you're thinking, the same thing I was thinking - are you kidding me?? I opened the false bottom and saw Astrid Lindgren's book in original Swedish, which I've been trying to get for months but couldn't because nobody would send it to our country. To say that I was happy would be a lie, because I was frigging excited. I exploded like a bottle of Coca-Cola when you throw a Mentos in it.
      On top of that, he also made a mixtape. A mixtape cd with some really great classics: Desert Rose by Sting, Love Lockdown by Kanye, Another Chance by Sanchez, Still Dre by Dr. Dre - something eclectic for an eclectic. It was great. But my favorite track was Love Will Set You by Starchaser because we used to listen to that when we first started. Maybe I'm not much of a romantic but I'm a sap for nostalgia. 
      I don't know if it was the smell of a new car, the surprise itself or sheer excitement, but I literally couldn't stop smiling. To feel that giddy on a date after almost 7 years it's pretty incredible. Shocking even. He really knocked this one out of the park and now I'm screwed. Why? The question is not why but how the fuck am I going to top that. For Christmas I bought him a new pillow for Pete's sake and I know no pillow is that comfy! But worry not, I too have a few tricks up my sleeve...
