Jack: "Birthday WEEK?" Me: Sure, a surprise everyday!" Jack:"You're really happy I'm finally the same age as you." Yes, I'm 6mo older than Jack. 43yrs ago I laughed at him because he wasn't 21 yet and couldn't sign for stuff. He told me then I would regret laughing about that. Dang, he was right. Anyway, here's his little surprises each day:
Monday: A senior pass to the National Parks good for free entry for life. You had to get it by Aug. 28th because the price of it would jump to $80. I already got us AARP cards so now this card can go right next to that one in his wallet!
Tuesday: His favorite cookies...Oatmeal, raisin, chocolate chip.
Wednesday: Pistachio nuts
Thursday: I paid for his lunch at Main Moon Chinese restaurant that he goes to every Thursday. He always gets the same thing. When I told the clerk who (or is that whom?) I was buying lunch for he immediately said...in a cute Chinese accent..."OH, I know....Garlic Shrimp and diet Pepsi!" Yep, that's the guy! (side note: The diet Pepsi is for me! Jack doesn't touch the stuff!) We also had his birthday dinner...shrimp creole on Thursday night because I was on call this weekend.
Friday: Gift card to Home Depot. That ended the birthday surprise each day, week! I think he enjoyed it! Other news:
