Today you woke up just a little older. Now we can go out and do the things grown ups do. Because we are supposedly grownups. I think we are succeeding in fooling the masses on that one. Today we can play and dance and I may even learn chess, but only today.
Because today is your birthday. And only on your birthday will I not argue about the rules of the game and the strategy. I will try my hardest to play, and challenge you, the Chess Club President.
As a special gift to you from me, you have free reign to toot all you want. In the bed, in the kitchen, anywhere at all. I wont say a word. I promise. But only today.
And be prepared for the snog of your life when you get home from work. It will be a good one. And a long one. And all this because you are the greatest thing that I have ever known.
You are my soul mate, and I am so glad I snagged you up before anyone else saw how perfectly wonderful you are. I love you to the moon and back. You have carved a place in my heart which will never be vacated again.
Happy Birthday Captain!
