April 5th, 2009
"Hey.  Are you online?" he asks all excited when I answer the phone.
"Get online.  I emailed you something I really want you to see."
I mosey to the laptop and get into my GMail.  (sorry Melissa, I had to pimp it for I love it so!)  The subject of the email is 'house'.  Nothing is written but there is an attachment.  The attachment is called 'Mr Big Man house'.  really it's his real name and not the nickname, he does not refer to himself as Mr Big Man.
Hmmm.  What could this be???
"What is this?"  I ask him softly for I am starting to get excited too.  
"My future house.  It's something I have been working on for sometime.  Can you see it?  I am going to build this.  What do you think?"
"Wow!"  I open it up and there is the drawing of the house.  I can see the outside of the house and where all the rooms are.  I really like what he did ... except something is funky with the front door.  But, and this is a big one, he has a wrap around porch.  My heart pitter patters.  I LOVE wrap around porches.
I tell him I really like it and we talk about what rooms are on which floors and the layout in general.
"Ah, Mr Big Man, what is up with the front door?  How come it is so far back?"
"I don't know.  I have been working on this for some time and I am still moving things around.  Why, do you not like it?"
I don't like it.  I think it should be moved up.  AND I have other ideas of where the bedrooms should be.  ALSO I think the upstairs layout needs to be adjusted.  AND the basement ... what is going on there?
I throw all my input at him.  I figure if that psychic was right, we were going to build this house.  I needed to be sure I was upfront with him from the get go.  Also if he was open enough to share this with me and ask what I thought, he really wants to know!  
The next day he sends me another email with an attachment.  Same attachment name.  I open it, my changes where there.  Not all, but a lot of them.
I tell him later that he needs to save two copies of the house plans. One called Mr Big Man & Nikki and one called Mr Big Man only. That way if we build this house together, all will be good.  However if we break up he might want to go back to the drawing board and revert back to the original plan.
"But I don't think you will" I say. 
"Because our plans will kick ass and your plans will ... well ... suck!"
He laughs.

    Okay, sounds amazing. That's great that he wanted to share the plans with you AND took your suggestions!
