    My Birthday Gift

    So MB snuck into my office this morning and left me a bday present. He gave me a card, made me a music cd and gave me a $30 gift cert for a music store. I called him and asked why he didn't let me know he was there. Said he wanted to surprise me and for me to keep it "on the down low". That really has me annoyed.

    First of all it's kind of always been an unspoken thing and we don't go blabbing about the gifts we get each other. But isn't it normal to talk about the gifts you get from family & friends? They all talk about us at work anyway and think we are going out secretly so what's the big deal? Hell, all last summer he would come into my vehicle and we would have lunch together and everyone knew. Since they all think we are at the least friends it wouldn't really be out of line for him to give me a gift. Got me wondering if he's all of a sudden embarrassed or even ashamed about me. Or maybe he feels guilty for leading me on all these months. I'm considering giving him the certificate back. He really shouldn't be buying me gifts like that anyway.

    Am I just taking the comment too personally/over reading it and just accept the gift or should I give it back?

    Gift Accepted

    Yes, after thinking about it I decided to just accept the gift for what it is....a gift.

    Happy Birthday and yes, accept the gift.
    That was thoughtful.
    You know it's love when the pain of being apart is greater than the pain of being together.
