Happy 2011 peoples. And happy birthday husband. Jeffrey turns 35 today and per always, I will be singing "Old Man River" to him in honor of this day. Edie had a sleepover at Toby, Gamma and Guppa's house last night while Jeff and I spent a blissfully child-free night in Vancouver BC. I presented Jeff with his super romantic gift - the dvd of the first season of ThirtySomething. We'd talked about it recently and it seemed fitting, plus, there's nothing we love more than a good tv show on dvd. When coming back to the US today, we had to wait a while at the border, but when we finally made it to the booth, this was our entire interaction:
Dude in the booth(approximate age: 28): What were you doing up there?
DITB: Why were you in Canada?
Jeff: For my birthday
DITB: What'd she get you? (referring to me)
Jeff: Umm... a dvd of the show ThirtySomething.
DITB: K, you can go.
We drove away laughing out loud. Was our answer so weird and quasi-embarrassing that he didn't need to know anything more to prove we weren't terrorists?
Also - while driving to Bellingham to pick up Edie on our way back to Seattle, we detoured to Birch Bay for a late afternoon cup of chowder. On our way back to the freeway, while driving a shady county backroad, we passed a field of llamas. I shouted, "Llamas!" and Jeff looked at them for a minute. Then this happened:
Jeff: Man, llamas have some weird posture.
Me: Yeah, I guess. (thinking - I could think of some weirder things about llamas - like that they exist at all, or that people buy them)
Jeff all of a sudden performs a rather forceful and sudden impression of a llamas neck posture that mostly involves him pulling his face back into his neck.
I very seriously respond: "I think it's more like this" and proceed to stick my neck out while simultaneously pulling my chin back.
We drive on in silence for a few minutes before Jeff says: "I think I just hurt my neck."
Thanks for being my favorite weirdo.
