We had this fun little chat about really, really wanting slap chips from our Cpt local fish 'n chips shop.
So, without me knowing that afternoon, he left work about 1/2 hour early with the intention of going to find some chips from somewhere, he knew they wouldn't be "our slapchips" - but he wanted to surprise me.
Of all the days, he leaves work early, in the pouring rain, without his umbrella, and no shelter, and the buses scheduled to arrive sooner, didn't come. In fact, the first bus to come was about 15 minutes AFTER his usual "leaving work" time.
About 4 stops after he got on, the bus-driver pulled over at one of the stops, saying he's late and has to start his route again, and so everyone must get off the bus and wait for another one.... in the rain!
Eventually, the next bus came, he hopped on and took the bus to the city where he had to connect to home. By this time, it was so late that he didn't have time to find chips. He arrived home well after 19h00, which is an hour later than usual - without the chips...
He only told me when he got home how he had planned to surprise me - what a guy.
I am so very thankful for him.
