Today is my birthday, and I am being appropriately celebrated by the World’s Greatest Husband, who is making a concerted effort to take the sting out of the “Milestone” part of the birthday. So far, he’s plied me with fine wine, cupcakes, flowers, and jewelry, and tonight I hear there will be cake. Good job, Stephan!!
I am also enjoying the birthday greetings on Facebook, which (in my opinion) is one of the best benefits of being connected to so many people from so many different periods of your life. So, thank you for the birthday wishes, and for reading my blog, and for generally being a bro, all of you. Your comments mean a lot to me, I read all of them, and they are keeping me motivated as I write my way through this entire year.
Now I am off to get a manicure, which I only allow myself to do once or twice a year (for reals!) because usually I feel an odd sense of guilt for sitting still and not doing anything for that long. Maybe that’s something I will work on this year.
Finally, because I’m me, I will leave you with this amazing photo. I’m not sure what those things are in the bin (they could be plastic trumpets), but I’d like us to just pretend that the bin is full of things you wouldn’t ordinarily put your mouth on , and that people keep doing this anyway, so much that it necessitated the creation of a hand-written sign to stop the insanity. W....T....F?
