I’m going to keep this short. I have this friend, you see? He’s really secretive about his life, what happens in it and who knows about it. I’m cool with that. But, he needs to know how important he is to me and I think he probably does. He needs more credit than he accepts for being a cool, swell guy. He comes off as a curmudgeon sometimes, which I used to think was about 50% act and 50% the way he is. I have come to find out, according to his day, it’s 70% either way. That’s okay, though. He’s still awesome. I’ll always hug him in public and one of the few men outside of my family that I’ll tell him that I love him in public and not care who knows it.
Where is this going? Well, it’s a special day for him, even though he doesn’t want anyone to know. It’s another trip around the sun, but not just that, it’s a milestone one at that. There’s a “zero” at the end of it. I’ll leave it at that. I’ll leave you all guessing. But, to him, I love ya, brother, and can’t wait to see ya over the next few decades, eh? Oh, um… there’s nothing more to see here!
Until tomorrow, same blog channel…
