Happy Birthday Mrs. Earp!

Today is Mrs. Earp’s forty-something birthday, and the start of the Earp Family’s Four-Birthdays-In-Six-Days event.

I met Mrs. Earp in high school, as she was my friend’s sister. We hung out at her house often, and she and I became friends. Eventually the friendship turned to dating, then dating turned to marriage, then marriage turned to four rotten, sarcastic kids.

Kidding, kidding! Sorta.

We’ve been together for almost 29 years, and married for almost 24. Like most couples, we’ve had our ups and downs, but for the most part it’s been a fairly steady ride. I’m considering getting her bupkis for her birthday because I just bought her a car. Think that’ll go over well? Nah, me neither.

Happy birthday, Mrs. Earp. I love you.

  2. Thanks all. The family had Chinese food for dinner – one of the missus’ faves – while I was stuck at work dealing with two homicides and another shooting.
