It’s R’s birthday today. I am being a very good wife since yesterday. I left office early and baked him a cake – a vanilla cake with dulce de leche frosting. Sounds impressive but was actually very easy to make. For the gift, I got him the complete Asterix collection. I am amazed at my generosity.
I was so excited about the cake and gift, that we cut the cake yesterday evening and I gave him the gift also. Did I mention that his birthday is actually today? Anyway we had fun. He loved, loved, loved the gift, said the cake was delicious, and I am feeling all smug and virtuous. Anna gave him a kiss and sang her version of the happy birthday song for him. He was so thrilled and told me that I am the second sweetest person in the world. Oh well, there are some things you just can’t compete with.
