Okay I have never had anyone give me something like this before. And it's not even Christmas or close to my birthday! While at work we talk about a lot of different things. One day I was talking about how I was teaching a friend to play the piano & he in return was going to teach me how to play the guitar. I was so excited I've been wanting to learn for awhile now. A co-worker Nic, showed me a website I could look at to find cords for songs that I wanted to learn. I got even more excited. Then a couple days later when I got to work Nic told me he had something for me. I was like 'really that's cool' not thinking to much about it. As the day went on he said he brought his guitar in so others said he should bring it in during break & play something for us. At break I saw it... the guitar was gorgeous!! Nic played 'With Or Without' by U2, one of our favorite bands! Then he played a song that he had made up, which was good too. At the end of work I got an appointment for the next day. I'm notorious for getting appointments right before we go on break or leave for the day. Because it was for the next day I had to stay and fill out some paperwork first. Nic said he still had that thing to give me, I had completely forgot about it. He said he would wait for me to finish. As we were walking to our cars Nic had a lot of things in his hands so I asked to carry something, he gave me his guitar to hold. As he was putting the things in his car he was telling me about his guitar & how good it was, how he had broke it but fixed it. How he has had it for a long time but has another guitar and that the strings were new. The whole time Nic was telling me this I was holding it & amazed. Then Nic told me he was giving it to me... I was shocked!! I asked if he was serious... he smiled and said yes! I'm pretty sure my mouth was wide open. I didn't know what to say, I said thanks & couldn't stop smiling. I even asked if I could give him a hug & asked if it wouldn't be weird because he was married. He said it was okay, he said I could use this to learn on until I got something better. I'm still shocked that someone would think of me and give me a GUITAR! As we left I had to tell someone... so I called Nick Smith the guy that's supposed to teach me to play and I just couldn't stop smiling. He said he was excited for me & wanting to see a picture. As a thank you to Nic I made him a card that looked just like the guitar.
