It’s someone’s birthday today
Today is Jim’s 52nd birthday. He and I are not much for giving presents or otherwise making a big deal out of birthdays, Christmas, and anniversaries, but we usually do take the day off and go to the Zoo and out to eat.
Out of those 52 birthdays, I’m happy to say that nineteen of them have been spent with me:
• two as a boyfriend
• eight as a boyfriend/roommate/unmarried spouse
• five as a domestic partner (an ugly name for a beautiful relationship)
• four as a husband from our legally recognized California gay marriage of October 30, 2008.
(Now you see why gay people want to get “married” just like anyone else….. So much simpler.)
This year, however, I did get Jim a little birthday present. I saw it at the San Diego County Fair exactly one month ago today and couldn’t resist buying it:
It’s about four inches square and is made out of wood. Jim has a B.A. and an M.A. in Piano Performance from University of Redlands, and I have a B.S. in Forestry from Texas A&M University…. why I like this little piano so much.
It even has a hinged lid that you can open:
As our outing today, we are headed up to Los Angeles to the Getty Museum, probably the best museum west of the Mississippi:
Not to worry about Zoey the Cool Cat. We have a house and pet sitter, whom we have used before, staying the day.
Happy birthday, Love!
