I had bathed my feet.

I went shopping yesterday. Usually I shop for other people, but yesterday I shopped for me. Well, me and the hubby. First I went to Berean, I got Cam a brand-spankin' new ESV Study Bible. A really major BIBLE. It's huge. It weighs about 30 pounds. Not that much, but close. It is a serious Bible that he could throw at people when they aren't understanding that whole Jesus thing. I know that he likes the translation and needed a Bible so HAPPY EASTER TO CAMERON. (I got it 50% off which made it a very HOLY DEAL.)

I had a couple of Victoria's Secret gift cards. I got a couple of lotion/body wash sets. Then I found a nighty at Target that I loved. I bought it. I did pay full price for it. That hurt a little, but I figured it was for a good cause.

Cam has been working late all week and last night he came home at a decent hour and the kids were asleep. I slipped into the shower to "freshen up" and shave my hairy legs. I locked the door with all my goodies inside the bathroom. I figured Cameron was distracted and watching TV. I don't often lock the door to the bathroom. I really wanted to be a surprise.

I'm halfway done shaving my leg when I hear something. I turn around and Cameron is in the bathroom. CREEPER. I tell him he's ruining my surprise. He tells me "It's not Biblical for you to lock me out." I raise my eyebrow. Of course he would have committed the Song of Solomon to heart. I tell him what I'm doing is different. I'm not rejecting him. I'm getting ready for him. He slips back out of the bathroom and says "NOT BIBLICAL."

Here's the verse Cameron has decided to bring up:

The Bride Searches for Her Beloved

She2I slept, but my heart was awake.A sound! My beloved is(G) knocking."Open to me, my(H) sister, my(I) love,
my(J) dove, my(K) perfect one,
for my head is wet with dew,
my(L) locks with the drops of the night."
3(M) I had put off my garment;
how could I put it on?
I had(N) bathed my feet;
how could I soil them?
4My beloved put his hand to the latch,
and my heart was thrilled within me.
5I arose to open to my beloved,
and my hands dripped with myrrh,
my fingers with(O) liquid myrrh,
on the handles of the bolt.
6I opened to my beloved,
but my beloved had turned and gone.
My soul failed me when he(P) spoke.(Q) I sought him, but found him not;
(R) I called him, but he gave no answer.

Here's the basic idea: She's being a turd and won't let her husband in after a long day of work. It's an ancient equivalent of "I have a headache." Well, I wasn't doing that, but Cameron decided to use the verse.

My husband is a very clever guy. He loves him some Bible verses. Here's the best part- you know the Bible I got him? On the page where you write who it's from and the occasion for giving a Bible, etc,  I wrote the verse 2 Timothy 3:16-17:
16(A) All Scripture is breathed out by God and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, and for training in righteousness, 17that(AG) the man of God[b]may be competent,(AH) equipped(AI) for every good work.

Cameron knows that includes verses in the Song of Solomon about locking your husband out. Wise man. ;)
