Dammit. This blog was supposed to be an April 22nd birthday surprise for Nicole’s 65th birthday. I might have known she’d find it, impeccable and thorough sleuth that she is. Luckily, she’s into it. The only downside is that I don’t get to experience the exhilaration of springing it on her. ’Tis better to give than receive, and all that. For the past 5 days I’d fantasized about how I’d tell her, and how she’d react - alas, ’twas not to be. I’ll have to give her a debriefing on feigning surprise. Maybe that’ll be her new birthday present.
