The Eagle Scout and the Beau Hunk: Christmas at Our House

Four months later and the Eagle Scout still flys high at our house... and so does the Beau Hunk.

In early December, I bought the Eagle Scout a Starbucks gift card as a little Christmas gift. As I was paying, I remembered the Beau Hunk would be home from his basecamp and would most likely be over the house at some point over the holidays. So, I bit down hard on my lower lip and purchased one for him, too, in the same exact denomination. God forbid, I be accused of playing favorites.

As I exited Starbucks, I could taste my own blood.

At Christmas, the Eagle Scout came over with his out-of-town grandparents who wanted to meet their grandson's "girl". They were very nice and we enjoyed getting to know them over a cup of tea. The Eagle Scout was very appreciative of the gift card and acknowledge the words of encouragement I had written in his card. He took his card home.

The Beau Hunk was able to come over only because D2 picked him up and brought him over. When I gave him his card, he looked at it like it was odd I was giving him a gift, opened it, said a quick thank you, and never said anything about the message I wrote inside wishing him well and telling him how much we admire his service to our country. After he left, I found his card all balled up and thrown in with a pile of crumpled up Christmas gift wrap.

I never mentioned it to Doc H. It would just be another Beau Hunk conversation between the two of us which ends in simultaneous sighs and eye rolls.

  1. Wow, who throws away the card AT the gift giver's house??? Beau Hunk strikes again!

  2. How disrespectful! I have one teen girl, I live her boyfriend, reminds me of MrFun way back when ;)

    1. I like Eagle Scout. He's still has some maturing to do, but you can tell he's the type that will grow up. I have my doubts about the Beau Hunk ever growing up.

  3. I revise my earlier comment about Beau Hunk on your most recent post. Beau Hunk get's an A+ for douchebaggery.
