It's hard to believe that 21 years ago today the Redhead and I spent all day at St. Mary's waiting for Darling Daughter to make her world debut. Red had the benefit of Good Drugs; I did a lot of pacing and worrying. Funny how that last bit never ends. :)
As was promised long ago, we're taking Darling Daughter to a very nice dinner Saturday evening at Ruth's Chris (like she'd let us forget). In addition to that, I thought I'd buy her a little present. She's big into Disney pins these days and there were several I knew she had her eye on, so I found one at a reasonable price on eBay (let me tell you, that can be difficult with pins)and snapped it up. One thing to keep in mind--the seller had four of these pins. Keep in mind too that I said nothing to Daughter about this. I wanted it to be a surprise.
Ho ho ho.
Last night she called about something, then added "By the way, I know what you bought me for my birthday because that guy had four for sale and now there's only three and I checked." I couldn't reply immediately; I was laughing too hard.
Darling Daughter has her mother's brains and her father's warped sense of humor. I always said I never worried about her following the crowd; my fear was that she'd be LEADING it.
Here she comes. You've been warned. :)This entry was originally posted at http://mister-terrific.dreamwidth.org/3685.html. Please comment there using OpenID.
