After the Honeymoon




Romance is long dead in my house. In fact, my partner has never been one for romantic gestures. Admittedly, I sort of shot that in the foot when we first met and I lamented about my former lover. That one delightfully displayed romance in spades but couldn’t hold a steady job (back then I wanted nothing more for us than to move out of our childhood homes and into a place together).

So let’s revisit my birthday from last week. I walked out of the bathroom to find not one but two envelopes on the bed. Here are the contents:


So My Advice for Your Birthday? Eat, Drink, and Be Murray

There Are Worse Things Than Getting Older. Happy Birthday!
My response? First, laughter. Secondly, “Hey, we could have spent all this card money on booze.”

At least we still laugh together after all these years. That is better than flowers and candy any day.

  3. If you can laugh through things, good and bad, you have a very good thing. Laughter is so much better than tears and gestures. We have 36 years going (June 6th). Happy day and year to you. Hugs.

  5. Laughter is the best...chocolate! As long as it's lubricated with a bottle of plonk!
