I have mentioned before that Gabe and I have a tradition of giving out cards for the wrong occasion or cards in foreign languages. The goal is never to get anything touching or appropriate but to get a good laugh. Our anniversary was a week and a half ago. Unfortunately, I was sick that day so Gabe came home with two cards.
One card was in braille. It was my “Get Well Soon” card.
The other one was my anniversary card. Mark was over here the other day and he thought that my anniversary card from Gabe was funny enough to take a video of and then post on his video blog. Mark also got a huge kick out of what Gabe wrote in it.
Now that you’ve seen it, you can imagine how much The Goon Squad loves this card. What you couldn’t possibly imagine is how many times I’ve heard the first 20 seconds of “The Final Countdown” in the past 10 days. Ian will just walk around with the card and open it up over and over and over again.
On a non-card related note, Claudia is sound asleep sitting up on the couch in her jacket, sunglasses and a string of silver beads that includes skulls and crossbones on it that my friend Angie brought to the kids from a Bucs game. I’m just going to let her sleep like that. At least she is napping.
