She pulled through with the 700 but because I knew I was getting it she tricked me!

She had all the presents wrapped and had them stored in her craft room. I was in there the other day and saw the wrapped presents and what looked to be a 700 sized box. Christmas morning I open the present to find she wrapped my 600 box that was in the basement! At this point I am thinking WTF! I already have one of these! I flip the box over to find a note attached with a picture of a 700. My next initial thought for about a second was, "what happened, Align run out of 700 boxes"?
I read the note and it says, "sorry honey the heli didn't come in time for Christmas, I hope it's not ruined". I tell her, of course it's not, but I am thinking, WTF!, I have next week off to build this thing, this sucks!
Now I am bummed but trying not to show it. She gives me my stocking and at the bottom is a card that reads "open last". I open it to find a riddle that says "bright, shiney, and new, your heli is located where we put our shoes"! Now I am thinking ok cool, it's actually here in the house. Problem is our shoes are EVERYWHERE in the house. So I start looking through all our closets to finally find it in the laundary room closet. Mean while she is following me around and taking pictures of me looking around like a retard. All in all it was fun, and put a good twist on a gift I knew I was getting.

LOL that's funny. Thanks for all the kind replys. I let her read your comments and it made her feel good that everyone said it was cool.
The relatives were in for the holiday and with a 4yr old nephew and a 2 yr old high strung dog visiting it has been a bit hard to work on the build. My wife has been encouraging me to build it so I did start it yesterday on the kitchen table. I have it to the point where the main frame is done with electronics. Next is the tail.
