This Easter Bunny Was Almost Naughty

Dear Allie,

Happy Easter!

Late to bed, early to rise on Easter makes a vamp extra effervescent!

I was up early after a wild night (more on that later) and I headed over to my brother’s house to help hide Easter eggs before my niece and nephew woke up. We even got their dog Bailey all dressed up for Easter. Cute, huh?

My brother's dog Bailey got into the Easter spirit!
But oh, let me tell you about last night! I was feeling a little blue because even with all the world-traveling I’ve been doing, I still missed going to Jamaica where my lifeguard buddy Jamal has been begging me to come visit. I just couldn’t squeeze in a visit to Jamaica between my trip to the Maldives and of course seeing you in NYC!

Rough and ready Viktor is becoming the expert at what he calls “fantasy-reality” where you take a fantasy and make it as real as possible. After first telling me to turn up the heat in my half of the duplex, he came over for dinner last night -- wearing his bathing suit! He then told me to “suit up" for an evening in Jamaica!

So there we were, cooking dinner in our bathing suits, dancing to Bob Marley:

"I wanna love you and treat you right;
I wanna love you every day and every night:
We'll be together with a roof right over our heads;
We'll share the shelter of my single bed;
We'll share the same room, yeah! - for Jah provide the bread."

And the meal he made – my Jah! Jamaican curry garlic crab legs with toasted, spiced basmati rice and beans and frosted cardamom cookies for dessert. As reggae music thumped in the background and I savored the special blend of spices, I found myself thinking, “I’m willing and able… so I throw my cards on your table!”

Fortunately, I knew I had to get up early the next morning to play the Easter bunny. . .

Happy Easter to my bestest friend ever!

Luv and hugs,
