I remember the day when my boyfriend asked me what I wanted for my birthday. I told him I wanted a ‘toy’, something fun and add some spice to bedtime.
He didn’t ask any questions, just said he would get me one.
Little did I know that my boyfriend had something else in mind when he came home with a cactus. I had no idea what he was thinking and was a little taken aback. He had gone to the store and bought me a cactus, instead of the ‘toy’ I had asked for.
At first, I was a little angry and confused. I felt like he had not listened to me. I asked him why he had chosen a cactus instead of the toy I had asked for.
He told me that he had thought about it and decided that a cactus was a better fit for me since I was so itchy can ownself play and cure the itch
He said that he wanted to get me something that I could keep around and take care of, something that wasn’t just a ‘toy’ that I used at night.
I was touched by his thoughtfulness.
He had gone out of his way to get me something that he thought I would really appreciate. I was also surprised at how well he knew me, that he had picked something that I would actually like.
But at the same time, it is kind of a mean joe.
So I decided to keep the cactus. I named it “Cacti” and I take care of it every day. I water it, give it sunlight and trim it when it needs it. I love it, and it makes me smile every time I look at it.
So when ever we have our special time, my bf will say “Time for me to insert the cactus”.
