This past weekend was my boyfriend Brian’s birthday. I had big plans for it which I happened to be very pleased with myself for. Somehow I had managed to come up with a gift that I thought was just brilliant…skydiving. Because really nothing says I am so happy you were born more than throwing somebody out of a plane. I told him to take Friday off and dress comfortably. He seemed totally comfortable and excited by the idea of me planning a surprise which made me realize I may never be allowed to plan a surprise again.
Cut to Friday morning. I ran to the window and my worst fear was realized…it was pouring ran. Not really the best weather to hurl yourself out of a plane at 12,000 feet. The wind was officially taken out of my sails. Skydiving was cancelled. I had to come clean on my plans. I still can’t tell if he’s secretly relieved.
So we came up with plan B…we drove to Ojai to have lunch and go wine tasting at Old Creek Ranch. Such fun! 8 wines for $15.00…and you get to take your wine glass home! Best deal ever.
This will now be my favorite way to spend a rainy afternoon:)
