Today, Monica turns 30 for the second time. When I put the banner up for September, she looked at me and said “That looks like way more than 31 candles.”
You see, that’s what happens when you get old. Your eyes start to go, and you think you’re seeing things. There are, in fact, exactly 31 candles on the banner.
It’s been a heck of a year. Here’s to decades more birthdays together. Happy Birthday, Moni.
EDIT: Fine, fine…I’ll admit, there were actually 33 candles in the banner, but that’s hardly “way more” than 31. It has been appropriately photoshopped so there are now EXACTLY 31 candles. You didn’t even notice the difference, did you? But at least my wife can now get on with her life knowing that, once again, she was right. Are you happy now?
