how long is he going to make us wait to see the tree?
UPDATE: THE WAIT IS OVER.
For your advent treat today, we sort of have a Christmas tree.
It all started when Gerard Piqué tweeted that he was decorating his Christmas tree, saying that while it looked easy, it wasn’t, and that he thought the tree could fall out of the window shortly, making him verrrrrrry nervous!
This prompted Carles to ask how it was going, and offer his help. But Geri didn’t need it, saying that his tree was “great” and “spectacular!” By this point, like all of us, Carles wanted to see the tree (of course, he has the option of going over to see it in person, which we don’t), so he asked for a photo. They also sent a lot of kisses to each other.
In the meantime, Cesc and Puyol also showed everyone how their trees looked (por cierto, very nice, because both of them had the help of their girlfriends and in Cesc’ case, the dog as well. No word on if Queca helped Puyi).
In the above tweet, Puyi once again reiterated his desire to see Piqué’s tree, as did Cesc, who also offered his help and his company, although he didn’t get his wish fulfilled before bedtime.
And we finally got a response, if not a picture. Geri tweeted, “I see there is a lot of eagerness to see my tree… but I’m embarrassed! The balls are too heavy and the branches aren’t straight… they’re actually bent over!” Doesn’t this make us want to see this special, wonderful, so Piqué tree even more?
UPDATE I: I don’t think we’re going to get to see it. Here’s Piqué’s latest tweets, from today.
He says that after seeing their trees, he’s realized that his is not at the same level, perhaps because he didn’t have the help of a Malena or a Carla.
UPDATE II: Puyi has provided a picture of “the tree,” calling it sad. Both he and Geri promise to tweet more pictures tonight, but Piqué warned people not to expect too much.
UPDATE III: Geri decided to toy with us for a little more, before finally (!!!) posting a picture of the real tree.
First, he weighed the pros and cons of showing us all the photo, and asked what we would feel if he went back on his word. Puyol for one said he would love him just the same.
Then Geri decided to let anticipating build, before finally posting a photo of the tree, which he admitted “wasn’t bad” and also said he was proud of his work!
Here it is. It doesn’t look bad, it’s just a bit bare on top and the branches do look kind of flimsy. I like the star on top!
UPDATE IV: Puyol has cast doubt on the authenticity of the tree.
He asked Piqué, isn’t that the tree from your parents’ house? So Piqué said he’d invite clever Puyi to come see the proof, by inviting him for dinner, which will also serve as an opportunity for revenge for the super dinner at Puyol’s house. And Puyi tweets back, ok, we’ll have dinner at your house tomorrow and take a picture together.
So this story is NOT over yet, since we can expect one more photo!
UPDATE V: Puyol was unable to have dinner with Geri, and verified that the tree above in update IV is in fact the real one, and apologized for doubting its authenticity.
And Carles also hung out with his Crackòvia double (the extremely talented Jordi Rios) and that of Piqué yesterday!
