I got an email on Saturday from Amazon.com and I thought it might be a mistake. “Bradi has sent you a $25 gift certificate,” it happily proclaimed!
Now, it’s not that I don’t think Bradi is great. I do! It’s just — what did I do to deserve a gift certificate? It’s not my birthday. It isn’t Christmas or Valentine’s Day or even Walpurgisnacht. It was the Ides of March, but that is traditionally not a gift-giving occasion, unless it happens to also be your birthday.
So I sent her a note that said, “What’s the occasion?” and she wrote back explaining that she is just SO AWESOME that she sent it for NO REASON AT ALL.
So now I have a problem.
It turns out that this is bargain week at Amazon for totally awesome action movies. If you looked at my shopping cart you’d be sure I was buying presents for Will. But, uh, these are totally for me. The fact that he will love them too? Just icing. But as I said, it’s bargain week. I am having trouble getting my total to add up to $25. Plus, I still have $3.73 leftover from a Christmas gift.
Here’s my cart so far:
- The Terminator
- Terminator 2: Judgment Day
What would be a good fourth?
