Happy Birthday Lis!!!!!!!!!!!!!
You’ve been a wonderful friend, a source of strength and support for me in the last year. I hope your day is as special as you are.
“Good evening everyone. It’s a beautiful Friday night here in the Metroplex, warm and balmy. We hope you enjoy this evening’s show. I’m Bud Nelson and this is my partner Ernie Warren. Say hello Ernie.”
“Don’t pay attention to the man behind the curtain.”
“I’m referring to you Ern.”
“I’m not behind any curtain.”
“You should be. You know this is a wonderful night for romance.”
“Yeah, the breath of life, the fountain of youth, the …”
“You don’t know what I’m talking about, do you?”
“Romance. Fabio. Flowing hair and bulging bi-ceps.”
“That’s only in books, moron. Have you ever experienced romance?”
“I had a ring once.”
“What are you talking about?”
“It was a promise ring.”
“A girl gave you a promise ring?”
“Yep, said ‘if I give you this ring, will you promise to stay away from me?’”
“Smart girl. But I’m talking about relationships.”
“I have relationships.”
“Did they all give you rings?”
“That’s not funny Bud. I have lots of relationships. I have Uncle Vito, Aunt Molly, Cousin JoJo …”
“Those are relatives, birdbrain. You don’t have relationships with relatives.”
“Don’t tell Aunt Trudy that.”
Happy Wednesday everyone!
