joey and jessica made a tiramisu cake, and while it was a slight surprise, i don’t think it’s a secret how much i like tiramisu. but then it was time to open my present… lots of orange tissue, followed by a very cool custom card with what would be the first clue on the front, and then a square flat box—surprise, a practice drum pad!
i’m sure it was the constant banging of pens, sticks, rulers, tubes, etc. against every possible surface throughout the studio that gave them this cool gift idea. i started to beat the drum with my hand like a bongo and they said, “reach in, there’s more”—and there they were, custom painted drum sticks to complete the set. i was NOT expecting this but i must say that it’s one of the most memorable gifts to date. i put it on a stand and took it home for the weekend, the boys loved it too. the house rocked every time one of us walked by the mini makeshift drum set. don’t expect me to join a band, but i do feel pretty cool having my own custom pair of drum sticks!
