Keep The Receipts!

“Make sure you keep the receipts!”

Those were the last words I heard from my wife as I left the house on Saturday to go shopping for her birthday. Now isn’t that just a vote of confidence!

Still, I think I did quite well. She refuses to open her gifts until this evening, so I will know more then…

Anyways, have a happy birthday, Aileen. You are a year older than I am now, but I will catch up again in just a few months! In the meantime, I’ll enjoy rubbing it in. Of course it used to be the other way around - you would laugh at me that you were 21 and I was only 20, but my how the tables have turned. I now look forward to paying back your laughter every year for the rest of my life! :)
