Today is Your Birthday

It is my husband's birthday today and I am looking forward to our day. First, we will go out to breakfast per his request and then off to the DMV for his registration. I don't mind going there as there is a fun store next door to snoop around in while he takes care of business. Then we will be off to shop for a new flat screen tv.
Flat screen TV's are all the rage now, I know but I just don't get it. TV is TV to me. As long as there is a picture and decent sound, I don't care about anything else. I sure don't care how big the picture is. 52" is not an upgrade to me, it is just silly. But that's the difference between men and women I guess.
As husbands go, mine is pretty good. I love him and he loves me, even after all this time. I met him about 30 years ago--right after his birthday. He sure was a looker and I was hooked from the get go. He agreed with everything I said so we had lots in common--until I found out that under the circumstances( a very loud bar) he couldn't hear a word I said so just agreed to be agreeable. Silly me-- I even thought he liked Barbra Streisand!!
Anyway, we have survived our ups and downs through the years and raised our kids to be two healthy, fine adults. I get really annoyed with him and once in a while, he really hurts my feelings but most of the time we get along just fine. Even though we don't have that much in common--he likes scifi, I like classic movies--we each try to at least tolerate the other's wishes. I watch scifi and he watches old movies with me! He even likes some of them...and I dread to admit it in print, I love some of the scifi!!
Husbands can be really irritating sometimes. Every woman I know has complained about her husband's bad little habits at least once. I bet no husband ever says, "Oh, my wife she's so irritating..she always puts the toilet seat down!" But just ask a woman who has lost her husband and I bet she wouldn't mind the toilet seat being up just to have that old annoyer around again!
Anyway, this is my birthday wish for you, husband. Live long and prosper!!
