Sgt. Assassin's Birthday!

It's Sgt. Assassin's 44th birthday today! And how does he get to spend it? With some sweaty guys in a dust-choked, humid tent! Yay!

I do feel bad about that. But it is hardly my fault, right? No! But since he's 9 hours away, I need to think of a creative way to celebrate his birthday.

Why? Because last November was our 20th Wedding Anniversary. I spent it curled up on the couch with a bottle of Mad Housewife Chardonnay and a pint of Ben & Jerry's Phish Food. I was wearing sock monkey pajamas and watching GLEE, or V, something like that. I'm pretty sure one of the kids was sick and we were out of milk.

You know what? Let's just forget I said all that and pretend I was in a coma. That sounds much better.

So anyhow, since I didn't really do anything interesting for such a huge milestone as that, I feel like I should do something interesting now, right? So, I'm open to suggestions. Any, suggestions. Seriously. I'm kinda desperate. Don't make me hit the ice cream section of HyVee out of desperation.

The Assassin

How about if everyone reading this sends him a Happy Birthday e-mail? Or better yet a You Tube Happy Birthday song!

I say go all out and have cake and send him pics promising to have one ready for him when he's back.

Okay! It's

I can't believe you just gave out his email. LOL! But I'll find something fun...when I get some work done.

You could combine all of these ideas. Make the cake, slather it on yourself suggestively, shoot a video of how you will reenact this when he gets home and send it to him. You'd be the most popular wife in the platoon! (Or whatever his group is called.)

Leslie Langtry said...

It's not his professional email and he needs cheering up.

How much frosting would I need, do you think?

TerriOsburn said...

Couple a cans, you should be good. Consider it a birthday present and a spa treatment all in one.

Leslie Langtry said...

I can just see my dogs licking it off my legs as I try to take the picture.

TerriOsburn said...

Well now you're ruining the whole idea.


Lock the dogs outside! And the kids. Just to be safe.
