Happy Birthday Sweetheart

Things have been so crazy at our place since the baby was born, we have not celebrated birthdays properly. It’s my wife’s birthday, and I wanted everyone to know how much I love her.

At the end of the movie Babel, the director dedicates the movie to his children, calling them two bright lights in the darkest night. That line made me cry. Jen and my son are my two bright lights.

What I love about Jen is:

  • She is the most emotionally generous person I ever met
  • She loves to dance
  • She is great with kids
  • She has long beautiful hair
  • Her incredible intelligence is coupled with an astonishing lack of ambition
  • Her socks never match
  • She spends her entire day taking care of seriously ill kids. She has fallen in love with many of these kids, but still has had to watch them die. Amazingly, this has never dampened her enthusiasm for life
  • She is a great mother

I hope you have a wonderful birthday.

Your wife

Happy Birthday, Jen!

You guys sound disgustingly happy.

Don't you guys know anyone you can set me up with?

Gah, now I'm falling in love with her too.

You just may get that toaster.

It's important to remind people of why you love them. It's nice for them to hear. It's a gift for you to compliment them.

Happy birthday!

Hi Rosie,

I am compiling a mental list, but I have to warn you, my track record isn't so good. I have set people up, until to hear about how bad it went for the rest of my life. That's when I think, maybe a stockbroke and a member of the Nationalist Socialist Party wouldn't look so cute together.
