He Loves Me …. He loves me not
When I arrived to town I was told about this magic jacket that every time he looks inside of it there is $20.00, and that it has happened over and over again before I had arrived. Well, I just figured this is what happens when you are absent minded, you find 20.00, get excited, put it back in your pocket, forget to spend it … and find it again!
So every week I started putting $20.00 in the jacket right before a cool time to do that, when least expected. I actually even captured him on camera one day reaching in and laughing so hard….so I was sure he knew it was me.
Well, I had just put in another $20.00 – but I didn’t expect him to put on the jacket! Oh no – we were going out to play poker and this wasn’t what it was for – it was for a time when you are driving down a country road and decide to go shopping but didn’t bring your wallet – kind of time.
I walk over and say, “Hold on a minute…” grabbing the money but concealing it in my hand and taking it to the dresser where I hid it under my stuff. He says, “Baby, what is that?” In which I replied, “Nothing.” He said, “I want to see it.” In which I protested, “No….please I don’t want you to, do you really have to see it?” By then I could see he was getting upset and it was important that he know what it is and I said, “Here, it was for your money jacket.” He said, “What! It’s been you putting the money in this whole time! But it happened 3 times before you got here. ” I said, “Yeah, but it was such a cute story I wanted to keep in going, and I thought you knew it was me because every time you found the $20 you would look at me and laugh.” He said, “Wow, you got me on that one.” I told him that to play a joke on him was not my intention, but the coolest thing about it was I saw how much he cared that there were no secrets between us and he found out I always believe in magic jackets and that wishes come true….but most important that my ulterior motive is always to do something good…….
