I bet you are all just waiting to hear how this birthday adventure ends. So, here it is.
After the cake, I got a 1/2 hour massage from my entire family:
And then we ate this lasagna that Vernon made:
And put the kids to bed, and, wait for it... WENT TO ADULT SKATE AT THE ROLLER GARDEN! Vernon had arranged for his sister to come over and babysit so we could do so:
And let me tell you this, adult skate is awesome. We thought it was going to be kind of lame, but actually we were the only lame ones there. It was packed (at least over 200 people) and these people all knew how to skate really well... and then there was us. I don't know if you've gotten the impression from all my rollerskating talk that I am actually good at rollerskating, but I am not. And Vernon is even worse. And it was R&B night, so that made us fit in even more.
But it was still awesome.
And I think I've discovered the second factor in what makes a grown man really sexy (the first is wearing a baby in a sling): Being able to rollerskate really, really well. And I'd say "no offense" to Vernon, but I'm pretty sure that he would agree with me.
So, there it was. My birthday. It was a good one.
Here is a quick formula on what makes up a good birthday:
- Lame Box of T-Shirts from my mom
+ Giant Cookie Cake
+ 1/2 Hour Massage from family
+ Favorite Meal
+ Adult Skate
A perfectly wonderful day
