So yesterday was the 30th birthday. I realize that although I'm not the youngest member here, I'm far from the oldest...so I don't expect a lot of pity when I say that it wasn't exactly a birthday I was looking forward to (putting it lightly).

My wife seemed to take kindly to my request to not celebrate, avoid gifts, cakes, etc. I just wanted to get through the day like any other Thursday. She did very well, but she did manage to sneak in one little surprise that was better than any gift I could have asked for.


I get to smoke in the house, but am relegated to my little "man corner" in the basement (which isn't so bad -it carpeted, TV/DVD hook up, nice table, curio cabinet...maybe I have it pretty good, I guess), and often complain that it'd be nice to smoke "in the real house" once in a while. She doesn't like smoke and barely tolerates it when I'm downstairs.

Imagine my surprise when I came home from work to find:
--My favorite movie all queued up in the DVD player ready to go
--My drink of choice poured and sitting next my recliner in the living room
--My Peterson Emerald, already packed with a healthy bowl of Fillmore*, matches, cleaners, and ashtrays all on the table next to that drink (IN THE LIVING ROOM)
--A note next to the ashtray that said "This is a one time deal...but enjoy it. Happy Thursday!"


*She's never smoked anything in her life...not even a puff of a cig. I asked her this morning how in the heck she packed the bowl pretty much perfectly. Apparently, she put enough thought into to have her dad stop over (a former pipe smoker) and load it up.

I dunno, sounds like to me you're "King for a Day." Cool What a swell birthday setup.

Enjoy your 30s, so far I've been diggin' it, but I've always been an old man, and will revel in my grouchiness, blunt opining, yelling at kids and talking about how awesome everything used to be (because I know how awesome I am now). Laughing

Happy birthday!
