  • Hubby turns the big 4-0

  • “Is your column about me this week?” Hubby has asked for the third time this past month. Each time my answer was “No, not this time.”

  • “Is your column about me this week?” Hubby has asked for the third time this past month. Each time my answer was “No, not this time.”
    I found it funny that Hubby, who isn’t all that big into public recognition, might want to be the subject of one of my columns again.
    In the past there have been several topics that I have circled back to him. Lately, I just haven’t been able to find something that worked for a column topic.
    Until now.
    On July 22, Hubby will be celebrating his 40th birthday. A landmark age that allows others over 40 to make fun of his receding hairline, the increasing amount of hair in his ears, his failing eyesight and faltering memory.
    In the past I have often done gag gifts, or written funny columns about him, but for this momentous birthday I just want to be nice.
    I will cook him his favorite meal and use our best China just to make it really nice. He loves food so that’s my focus. And because he checks our online bank account several times a day, there is no pulling anything past him.
    This year we are going to try a different approach to his birthday–to celebrate being 40 grown up style.
