Today is the day exactly half of your life ago you met me. Twenty-one years ago you walked up to a bleached-blonde stranger (the grey didn’t work) on a bet in a bar. I bet you never thought it would pay off other than that night and that we would be here when you were twice as old, eh? Me neither.
We talk about this day often enough that I consciously wanted to reference it. When we talked about it, I often pretended not to know the exact day but I always knew when it was. I recall going to the Tech basketball game with Brady and then over the club. I wanted you to know I have been waiting for this day.
Anyhow, it has been a really interesting ride. There have been ups and downs, of course, but the average trends upward and that is mostly due to your efforts. I know you understand.
In the last twenty one years we have had some great adventures and increased the world population by 2. We have really great kids from your efforts and investing your time in making sure they are kind, thoughtful and creative. I see your influence on them and it constantly makes me smile. I learn from them often and they teach me through you.
I look forward to all of the following years and showering you with “agape” love. I have to do this unconditionally since I am kind of a pain but I mean well. Thanks for everything you do but most of all thanks for laughing at all my corny jokes.
Looking forward to twenty-one more,
