Happy birthday to my companion, business partner and best friend!
He didn’t know how unlucky he was when he married someone who’s as helpless at gift giving as I am. I finally thought of a good birthday present for him last week and found the store on the other side of town to buy it from. But earlier this week (as you may have seen on my Snapchat) that day became a wild goose chase of wrong platforms, broken elevators, bus hunting, bus card losing and eventually sandwich eating at the park. Sad as I was I told Marcus about my failure at getting him the right present and that now I’d have to order it online and it wouldn’t be here in time. And kind as he always is, he told me not to worry about it and that he btw was happy that I hadn’t gone wandering that far away from home. The number of grey hairs I’m sure this guy is getting over trying to keep us safe is unbelievable.
I’m still puzzled at why he ever had the idea to ask out an imperfect cluts like me but I’m going to spend the rest of my life trying to live up to him – before he one day wakes up and realizes :)
