A Cat's Tale

I have hesitated to write until now……why you ask?
Well it's like this, I have been spoilt rotten in the last few years with quite a few noteworthy gifts, one being my new Mac Book Pro Retina Laptop I got for my birthday a month earlier in February : )

I had mentioned on a earlier post how every time I come across a penny on my travels that I never miss the opportunity to pick up the lucky penny and put it in my pocket. Well , last month my son wanted to go to the Mac store at the Rideau Centre in Ottawa to purchase a MacBook Pro Retina for himself and so we all went and accompanied him on his excursion, me oblivious to the fact that I would be coming home with one as well. 
On our way there I came upon not one but two pennies and I as usual stooped down to pick them up and placed them in my pocket.
After spending a considerable time in the store, the parking ticket my son had been gifted from a young girl when we had arrived was almost expiring and so I said I would go back to the car and wait for them. It didn't even dawn on me why they were okay with me going back to the car when it's always the kids that do the trek…...that should have given me a clue to their off the cuff secretive plan.
Upon their return back to the car I spotted my son holding onto a box inside his coat, I was surprised he  had bought it. Thinking back, it should have registered to me how the box had looked way too big for just one thin laptop …..he was really holding two : ) 

When he sat in the front seat he turned around and stretched out his arm with the box and said "Happy Birthday ", never letting go of the box and then quickly took it back and said…. "just kidding".
Then once again, for the second time he turned around and handed it back to me and said
" I'm serious, Happy Birthday!" He might of played the trickery more than two times but I can't really remember, I was so over whelmed with surprise, after all they said it was never planned and they had just decided in the store since I had mentioned to my husband numerous times that he could buy me one for my birthday next month, being half serious and half joking…..he took it seriously : )

Well, I was floored, never in a million years would I have guessed it!

So with this little tale being said, and actually it really is my tale , not the cat's, picking up the little pennies from heaven did bring me luck.

As you can see even the cat has been transfixed to it ~^..^~

p.s. Will soon be posting a new painting that I am presently working on.
