So my roommate is my best friend of damn near 20 years, I have known him since I was about 5 years old and generally he's the only person I can tolerate for more than a few minutes.
This motherfucker woke me up today and said
"You're getting a package in the mail soon from the St. Louis Zoo, congrats I bought you a tiger."
At first I was confused until he explained that he donated money to the St. Louis Zoo (in my name) towards the Tiger exhibit where they have a big ass Amur Tiger which I am now the adopted parent of. His girlfriend did the same thing for him last year for the Prairie Dogs.
I can't...words can't express how perfect a gift that is to me, I don't like getting gifts because material things mean nothing to me. I was raised by a parent who valued her possessions over her child so physical stuff is just extra baggage in my eyes.
But money to feed, care for, and help keep my favorite animal alive and from going extinct makes me happier than I have ever felt and love LOVE LOVE LOVE my best friend for that, he knows exactly who I am.
Today is a good day <3
