When my friend Matt and his girlfriend Katie were visiting for Thanksgiving, Matt commented on our DVD collection. He had noticed that although I had Saw I, II, V and VI, I was missing III and IV.
See, back in 2006, I made Matt go see Saw III with me in the theater. He had no desire to see it but being a good friend and knowing I wouldn't go alone and couldn't talk anyone else into it, he sucked it up. Despite the fact he hadn't seen the first two, he liked it. And so he started back at the beginning by renting the movies and has followed the series ever since.
After a particularly emotional day (due to being overwhelmed about career making decisions that will affect the rest of my life...nothing big or anything), I arrived home from work and found a package from Matt. I wasn't expecting anything so it took me by surprise. Inside I found the following...
No idea why but I just lost it. I could barely see my phone as I tried to text him. The tears would not stop coming. He just made my day. He wanted to make sure I had all the movies for a Saw marathon. Guy best friends can be so awesome and thoughtful. I suggest you go out and get yourself one. But don't steal mine!
Thank you Matt. You are the bestest and I love you.
