My boyfriend’s birthday was coming up, and I wanted to do something really special. I remembered he had told me that he wanted his own private island, complete with personal chef and masseuse so I though about cool date idea.
Well, I looked all over Missouri for an island that was owned by the state, and finally found the perfect one.
I woke up early the morning of his birthday, and his brother and I went to prepare the island. We set up a pair of tents, and I cooked his favorite chicken dish. I made up a menu and put really gross stuff on it along with the chicken to make sure that’s what he would pick.
I went to pick him up, and since he knew he was getting a surprise (but had no idea what it was) I blindfolded him and drove him about 30 minutes to where his „island for a day” awaited.
I borrowed a canoe from a friend, and when I had him safely in the canoe, I removed the blindfold. He was so shocked to be in a canoe on the water that it made the whole trip worth it. As the canoe approached the island, he could see a sign that said “Private Island!”
His brother met us on the beach, escorted us into the tent with the table, and gave out the menus. My boyfriend picked chicken (of course), which I had kept warm. After dinner, I gave him a massage. He complained the whole time about being cold, but now we laugh about it.
He says it was the sweetest thing anyone has ever done for him.
