My boyfriend’s birthday is coming up pretty soon and I was hoping to surprise him with something I don’t normally would think of. Something that marks our 2 year relationship would be really nice.
For his other birthdays, I would always go to what he likes, his hobbies, all the stuff he is into. It’s very reliable. I mean, it’s boys we’re talking about. It’s just usually about food, exotic ones he hasn’t tried yet. He’s a bit of a glutton actually. He collects shot glasses, too, which I find really boring. But most of all, he is so into star wars. It’s crazy. He used to own this really old star wars blanket that he kept on refusing to throw out. Yuck.
But anyway, I already have a dinner planned at this nice place downtown with him. It’s an Asian fusion restaurant, and I don’t think he has tried that cuisine yet. And I keep on thinking that I already gave him loads of star wars stuff as a present. But I didn’t quite touch on his obsession with shot glasses yet.
What’s it with those shot glasses, anyway? They’re for drinking tequila shots, not for display, I’d always think when I see them. I searched online, looking for a good designed one to buy. But then I realized that there’s also an interesting side to this collecting thing. There’s a lot of people out there who drool over display cases just as much as the contents of these cases. I came across this great site (http://www.shotglassdc.com) that had a lot of shot glass cases to choose from. I saw one I really liked, which had lighting fixed inside the back panel and when turned on creates this pretty glowing effect, like that room in Tron.
I got excited and thought this would be perfect for his collection of shot glasses. As far as I know, they’re just sitting in the kitchen of his house. But this display case is small enough to fit inside his room. It really looks cool, sleek and modern.
I bought it yesterday and it’s now sitting in my room all wrapped up. I hope he likes it. I’m planning to send it to his house early in his birthday so he can see it first thing in the morning. That would make his day, I bet. He really loves those shot glasses. And then at night we will go to dinner and it will be such a perfect birthday.
