Hammock time

Really had to pat myself on the back for this one - someone I had been seeing had his birthday shortly after we went out on our 3rd or 4th date. Though I hadn’t yet gotten to know him well, I still wanted to make a small gesture to acknowledge his birthday. But, what to give?

Embarrassing back story. On our second date we accidentally broke his hammock while trying to make out. Oops. Though we were laughing as we both went down, I felt really bad when it happened because he seemed a little sad about his loss. He had apparently had the hammock for a really long time. I went online with hammocks on my mind, and found a T-shirt by this really cool company called Trek Light Gear based out of Colorado that makes all sorts of hammocks and hammock accessories. As soon as I saw their t-shirt that said, “Stop. Hammock time,” I was sold! 

I really loved watching his reaction as he was opening his present. We both got a good laugh out of the gift, especially since no one one else will get the inside joke about why the shirt’s funny beyond the MC Hammer reference. #noregrets
