I finally told BLT about the surprise bachelor party I arranged for him. It's a month earlier than I anticipated telling him - but it was still a great surprise.
One evening last week I was obsessing about the friend in the previous post who isn't coming to my bridal shower because she can't rock the boat at home. BLT's take on it is that yes, it's upsetting, but in all honesty I should be really happy that I have friends willing to throw me a shower at all. He said, not unkindly or with spite, "Hey doll, I'm not even having a bachelor party. All my friends are two states away, and I'm not pissed about it." And I could tell he wasn't mad, but there was a little wistful quality of regret in his voice.
It was REALLY hard not to spill the beans right there and tell him. But I smiled sympathetically and nodded and we moved on with the conversation. I have been keeping this secret since December or January when I first decided I wanted to try and work out a surprise bachelor party for him. I purchased his plane tickets back in January, and I got the ball rolling by contacting friends and his dad and putting the party planning in their hands.
I talked to my mom later that week and she recommended I finally tell BLT about his party. She had several good points. 1. This way BLT can contact Fraggle's grandparents and arrange a visit while he's down there. 2. He can get his paycheck early and have spending money. 3. He can be a part of the planning to make sure that anyone I don't know, who is important to him, can attend. and last but not least, I don't take the chance of someone else spoiling the surprise before I can tell him.
So the other day at work I called him over and gave him the printed itinerary. I fessed up about all my scheming and the plans I know of that are in the works. He was very surprised. It was awesome if I do say so myself.
Whewww... I'm glad it's out in the open now! I know his buddies are going to take care of him! I told them all I don't want any details. It was my job to get him down there, and it's their job to make sure he comes home hung over! Heh... All I told BLT was that there was one rule; Don't bring home anything you plan on having for the rest of your life... he laughed at me, but he's knows exactly what I'm saying!
